SuccessFactors Learning Management System - Import Content

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the Learning Administration
  2. Go to the import content tool - Content > Tools > Import Content
  3. Proceed importing a content using the steps on screen
  4. Error Message appears


The content you are trying to import contains a long description.


Contact the content developer to shorten the description for you (up to 765 characters). As this change should be perfomed inside the content, it is something that could not be changed on the LMS UI.
