2355064 - Q3 2016 - LRN-12645 - Notify Instructor enhancement in LMS Scheduled Offerings


  • This KBA covers how to use the new "Notify Instructor" option in Scheduled Offerings in the Learning Management System (LMS)


  • SAP SuccessFactors
  • Learning Management System (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new Scheduled Offering
  2. Note that Instructors of the Scheduled Offering are receiving notifications automatically


  • The new LRN-12645 enhancement provides admins the ability to use a new template specifically for instructors which can be customized at the Scheduled Offering level
  • It provides a much requested functionality to send instructors notifications regarding the Scheduled Offerings they are assigned to
  • It can be triggered on adhoc basis for all instructors in the Scheduled Offering


Instructor Notifications can be disabled on the creation of the Scheduled offering in the "3. Resources" section:

  1. Login as an Administrator
  2. Navigate to Learning > Scheduled Offering > click "Add New"
  3. On the "3. Resources" section, uncheck the Notify Instructor tag:
    1. Add_SO_Instructor_Notification.png
    2. .
  4. This will prevent Notifications from being sent to the Instructor for that scheduled offering


For existing Scheduled Offerings, Notify Instructor can be disabled (or enabled) by:

  1. Login as an Admin
  2. Navigate to Learning > Scheduled Offering
  3. Search for the Scheduled Offering you'd like to modify and open it in Edit mode
  4. Go to Segments
  5. In the Actions menu on the right, click "Notify Instructors"
  6. In Notify Instructors, uncheck the instructor(s) to prevent them from receiving notifications:
    1. existingSO.png
    2. .
