To prevent users from skipping items of sections in a program, in the Learning admin side, go through the following options:

  1. Learning Activities >
  2. Programs >
  3. Search and access the desired program >
  4. Click the edit button of the "Settings" box >


      5. It is possible to see in the "Progress Restriction" line the checkbox to activate the option to "By completion: Users must complete previous sections before starting next section". Check the box, click the buttons "Save" and "Done".


With the box checked, the users will only be able to advance if the section is completed.

Note: As per Learning Product Management team, optional activities are not considered for the progress restriction. This functionality only applies to activities marked as "Required".
