3057031 - Default New Item Classification


How to choose default item classification when creating new item via LMS admin UI?


SAP SuccessFactors Learning (LMS) - 1H2021 (b2105)

Reproducing the Issue

Since new enhanced feature introduced in 1H2021 (b2105), where item classification selection is available when creating new UI, it defaults to Online and would like to know how to set the default for new items to something other than Online.


New 1H2021 feature (Select the Item Classification While Creating New Items) to show the item classification dropdown so dependant fields appear in the new item creation screen has a default value of Online.


  • Prior to 1H2021 (b2105) & since new UI, you could not choose item classification so had to navigate to specific fields as to make changes that determine item classification as per KBA 2908968 after/during item creation.
  • With this new item classification field dropdown the default value is Online so item completion status appears as this is most used item classification; however there is no setting to change the default value, but you can upvote on the enhancement request:
