If you configure “On Hold” after “Completed” in the Development plan xml template, then the system will treat the “On Hold” status as the Completed status.

Incorrect Order of Status.png


The order of the status in the Development Plan xml needs to be rearranged. The final status should always be "Completed".

Once the order has been corrected, save and upload the xml to provisioning and then go to the "Development" section and you will now be able to select "Add New Learning Activity" to the Development Objective that is in the "On Hold" status.
