2473888 - Identifying if users marked the option "Do not show this page every time I sign in" in the news page


There is a need to identify the users who marked the option "Do not show this page every time I sign in" presented in the news page when they log in the LMS:



SAP SuccessFactors Learning (LMS)


This information can be found within the table PA_STUD_UI_PREFERENCE.

The column PREFERENCES contains information related to the user UI preferences. You need to look for the tag <showNewsPage>. The possible values are:

  • <showNewsPage>false</showNewsPage>: Checkbox is marked
  • <showNewsPage>true</showNewsPage>: Checkbox is not marked

Please note that this information will only be updated in the database if the user logged out of LMS instead of closing the browser.

If they close the browse directly, the information will only be sent to the database the next time they log in into LMS.

There is no standard report to obtain this information.

Customers will need to build a custom report if they want to obtain this information from the database. Please check on the references section for a KBA on Custom Reports.
