Reproducing the Issue

  • If you just want to remove a LMS Learning Activity from an individual user's Development Goal, you can do this manually by clicking on the Action button > Delete:

  • However, if you wish to remove/ delete it for many users at once (mass removal), you can do this from LMS side.


For Mass Removal, the Learning Activites need to be removed/ deleted from LMS side, and this will then be reflected in BizX/ Development Plan of the users.

  1. From Admin Center go to Learning > Learning Administration
  2. Click on Users > Tools > User Needs Mgmt > Remove Items > Next:

   3. Add the users, for whom you want to remove the Learning Item. For example, you could enter the usernames seperated by commas:

> Or simply click on 'Search' to retrieve all users in the system and then on 'add one or more from list':

   4. Here you will have to manually add the users.
