Can I add a date field to a learner profile?

Follow

The Custom Learner Data fields were designed to assist Training Administrators in organizing learner data. Administrators should consider how training will be launched, tracked, and reported on. The Custom Date Fields can track information such as hiring date, last trained date, promotion date or even birthday!

To Add Learner Date Fields:

  • Click on the {Custom Learner Data} link under the Professional Tools column in the LMS Dashboard Homepage.
  • Choose the "Learner Date Fields" tab.

To Deactivate Learner Date Fields:
  • Click the grey "Deactivate Field" button to the right of the field you wish to deactivate.

    What are the details on how the dynamic date field can be used to link with course tracks & Training Cycle Management?

    Can I used the date field to auto-assign training based on a certain number of days from custom date field values?

    Say, auto-assign courses {titles x,y,x}  {x number} {days/weeks/months}  {before/after/on} the {Custom Date Field name} value.

    Or is there no connection yet?

    At this time, there is no functionality to auto-assign training based on a certain number of days from custom date field values. If you would like to have the idea considered, please add it as an LMS feature suggestion.
