The training plan progress dashboard: overview and manage learners' progress

Introduction

The training plan progress dashboard provides an overview of the learners' progress for a specific training plan. From here, admins can manage learners' training plan progress using a range of management tools and download a report that shows additional information about learners' progress with the training plan.

This guide covers how to find the training plan progress dashboard and report, how to get an overview of the learners' progress for this training plan, and the tools that are available to admins to manage the progress of learners.

 

How to find the training plan progress dashboard

Required role: catalog or course admin.

There are several ways to get to the training plan progress dashboard:

  • Go to the Learn365 Admin Center > Training Management > Select the relevant training plan > from the Training Plan Management panel, select Training Plan Progress.

Overview of the training plan progress dashboard

The training plan progress dashboard consists of several sections, each of which shows training plan progress information for the currently enrolled learners:

  • Summary of Progress for Selected Training Plan displays charts with summarized information about learners' progress. Select the expand arrow to expand or collapse the summary information. Selecting Download report enables you to download a report in Excel format that shows training plan progress data. More information about how to read the data on the dashboard and in the report can be found in this article.
  • Below the charts, you'll find the following search and filtering tools:
    • Selecting the Reload icon the_reload_icon.png refreshes the training plan dashboard to show the most up-to-date information.
    • In the Search field, enter all or part of a learner's name to search for a specific learner.
    • The All filter enables you to filter learners according to the selected first letter of their name.
    • Select a column heading to sort the training plan progress dashboard by the information in that column.
    • To filter the information in the Status, Completed, and Certificates columns, select the filter icon in the relevant column heading to open the filtering options. The filter in the Status column enables you to filter learners according to the Completed, In progress, and Not started statuses. In the Completed filter, set a date range to filter the information by who completed the training plan within this period. The Certificates filter enables you to filter learners by who received certificates.
  • To see details of a learner's progress on each course in the training plan, select the expand arrow next to the learner’s name.
  • A set of tools enables the management of progress of an individual or multiple learners. For more information, see the next section of the article.

Manage learners' progress

On the training plan progress dashboard, you'll find the options to manage learners' progress: 

  • Edit a learner's progress and change the completion status.
  • Clear a learner's progress for a training plan and courses in it.
  • Clear a learner's progress for a training plan but keep the progress of the courses in it.
  • Clear a learner's progress for an individual course within a training plan.
  • Force an individual learner to retake a training plan.
  • Force multiple learners to retake a training plan.
  • Force retake of an individual course in a training plan.
  • Manage a learner's certificates.
  • Download a training plan progress report.

 

Edit a learner's progress and change the completion status

To edit a learner's progress with the training plan, you should edit the progress of the courses included in the training plan. To do this, follow these steps:

1. To see a learner's progress on each course in the training plan, select the expand arrow next to their name.

2. Select the Edit progress icon next to the course for which you want to edit the learner's progress.

 

the_edit_progress_icon.png

 

3. On the opened learner's course progress panel, you can edit the learner's course progress and change its completion status.

The Completed toggle enables you to mark the whole course as completed, regardless of the status of its learning items and attendance (for instructor-led training) and whether these learning items are required for course completion. 

Completing all courses in a training plan automatically brings the training plan status to Completed.

When you drag the Completed toggle to Yes:

  • The course will be set as Completed, regardless of the status of its learning items and whether these learning items are required for course completion.
  • The Completion date field opens, where you can manually set the completion date. By default, today's date is shown.
  • If the course has set CEUs, the CEUs field will open. Here, you can edit the number of CEUs that learners will acquire upon completing this course in the training plan. However, the CEUs for the course aren't included in the CEUs that a learner can acquire for completing the training plan. 
  • If you don't manually change the status of individual learning items in a course, their original status is retained.

Depending on the course type, the learner's course progress panel may consist of two tabs: Learning Items and Attendance. Attendance is available only for instructor-led training.

  • In the Learning items tab, you'll see a list of all learning items. The completion status of learning items can be managed from here. To change the completion status of a specific learning item, select the relevant status from the drop-down list.
  • In the Attendance tab, you can manage a learner's attendance. The Attendance tab is absent for instructor-led training of the single- and multiple- enrollment types if the learner is enrolled in the course without any session or session group registration. To be able to manage attendance for learners, they'll need to be registered for a session or a session group.

If you set all learning items to Completed and set the attendance percentage to the value required to complete the course (only for instructor-led training), the course will also be automatically set to Completed.

4. Select Save to save changes. To discard the changes, close the panel.

For more information about the training plan completion status and how to manage it, see this article.

 

Clear progress

The Clear progress option for training plans enables you to manage the training plan progress of an individual learner.

This option is helpful in scenarios where you would like to reset a learner's training plan progress in such a way that recent records of progress or completions, either for the whole training plan or for its courses, are deleted, and no longer stored in a learner's records and transcript. This is different to the Force retake option, which retains a learner's records.

When the Clear progress option is initiated, the learner will receive the Training Plan Progress Reset email notification, which informs them that the progress of the courses within the training plan was reset, and the training must be retaken.

 

Depending on the training plan progress, you can clear a learner's progress:

  • For the whole training plan and courses in it.
  • For a training plan itself but keep the progress of the courses in it.
  • For individual courses in the training plan.

The Clear progress icon is located near the training plan title if progress is recorded for any of the courses in the training plan. The icon is also located near the course of the training plan if the learner has started this course.

For a training plan

Clearing the training plan progress will result in the following:

  • The learner's progress status for the training plan and the selected courses will be set to Not started.
  • The learner's most recently acquired valid and expiring training plan certificates and granted skills of the training plan will be deleted and can't be tracked any more in the transcript.
  • The learner's most recently acquired valid and expiring certificates for individual courses will be deleted if the certificate awarded via this training plan.

To clear a learner's progress with the training plan, follow these steps:

1. Start to clear the training plan progress in one of two ways:

  • Select Clear progress (the red cross icon) in the learner's name row.

select_the_icon_to_clear_progress.png

 

  • Select the learner's name to open the Actions panel, where you select Clear progress. This action is available only when an individual learner is selected.

call_out_the_Actions_panel.png

 

2. Using either method opens the Clear progress panel. This panel shows only the courses for which the learner has progress (with the In progress and Completed statuses), regardless of whether they're required for completion. Not Started courses aren't shown here.

By default, all completed courses that are required for completion are selected. 

On the opened Clear progress panel, select the relevant courses checkboxes:

  • Select the Name checkbox in the column heading to choose all the courses. As a result:
    • The training plan progress and the progress of all the courses in the training plan will be cleared and receive the Not started status.
    • The recent records of progress or completion for the whole training plan and all courses within it will be deleted and won't be stored in the learner's records and transcript.
    • The learner will receive the Training Plan Progress Reset email notification, informing that the progress of the courses within the training plan was reset. In this case, learners will have to retake all courses in the training plan to complete the training plan.

clear_the_training_plan_progress.png

 

  • Select the checkboxes of the individual courses for which you want to clear the progress. In this case:
    • The training plan and the selected courses will receive the Not started status. The remaining courses will retain their progress.
    • The recent records of progress or completion for the whole training plan and the selected courses within it will be deleted and won't be stored in the learner's records and transcript.
    • The learner will receive the Training Plan Progress Reset email notification, informing them that the progress of the selected courses within the training plan was reset. Learners have to retake the courses only with the reset progress.

  • To keep the progress or completion of the courses within the training plan and change only the training plan status to Not started, clear the checkboxes of all the courses on the panel. This would be helpful if you add another required course to the training plan, but the learner has already completed the training plan. As a result:
    • The learner will have to take only the added course to complete the training plan again.
    • The training plan will receive the Not started status. The courses in it will retain their progress.    
    • The recent records of progress or completion for the training plan will be deleted and won't be stored in the learner's records and transcript.
    • The learner will receive the Training Plan Progress Reset email notification, informing them that the progress of the selected courses within the training plan was reset. The learner has to retake the courses that haven't been started yet.

3. Select Delete to clear the progress.

 

For an individual course within a training plan

Within a training plan, you can clear a learner's progress for individual courses that have either the In progress or Completed status.

As a result:

  • The course progress will be set to Not started.
  • It won't influence the Completed or In progress status of the training plan because it only brings the course progress to Not started.
  • If a learner received a certificate for completing the course within the training plan, the most recently received certificate will be deleted.

To clear course progress within a training plan, follow these steps:

1. Select the Clear progress icon near the relevant course title within a training plan.

2. On the opened Clear progress panel, you can manage course progress by selecting the relevant learning items:

  • By default, all learning items with the Completed status are selected. The In progress and Failed learning items are listed but aren't selected automatically. Learning items with the Not started status aren't listed here. To select all listed learning items on the panel, select the Name checkbox in the column heading. Selecting items in this way will clear the course progress and the progress of all learning items in the course.
  • If the course was manually completed and its learning items have the Not started status, no learning items will be displayed on the Clear progress panel. In this case, select Delete to clear course progress.

3. Select Delete to clear the progress. To cancel the action, close the panel.

 

Force Retake

The Force retake action enables you to reset progress either for the whole training plan or for individual courses in a training plan. You can force one or more learners to retake a training plan, including the ability to force a retake for all learners who are currently enrolled in a training plan. 

The Force retake icon is located near the title of the completed training plan and near the completed courses of this training plan.

 

Force an individual learner to retake a training plan

As a result of a forced retake of a training plan:

  • The learner's training plan progress is reset, as well as the progress of all of its courses.
  • The training plan status and that of its courses will be set to Not started.
  • The learner’s previous completion remains available in the learner’s records. To track the most recent completion date of the training plan, download the training plan progress Excel report and refer to the Previously Completed column. To track the most recent completion date of each course in the training plan, hover over the grey tick icon near the course status on the training plan progress dashboard.

TIP   

You can enable the automatic Forced retake option in the Settings section of the training plan configuration panel. As a result, learners will receive a notification that asks them to retake a completed training plan according to the training plan settings: a set number of days after training plan completion, on a fixed date, a set number of days before their current certificate expires, or when their certificate expires. For detailed steps on how to set up the option, see this article.

 

To force an individual learner to retake a training plan, follow these steps:

1. Start in one of two ways:

  • Select the Force retake icon of the training plan in the learner's name row.

2. In the confirmation dialog, confirm the action by selecting Retake. To cancel the action, select Cancel.

 

Force multiple learners to retake a training plan

In cases when you want multiple or all learners to retake a completed training plan, you can use the Force retake action.

TIP   

You can enable the automatic Forced retake option in the Settings section of the training plan configuration panel. As a result, learners will receive a notification that asks them to retake a completed training plan according to the training plan settings: a set number of days after training plan completion, on a fixed date, a set number of days before their current certificate expires, or when their certificate expires. For detailed steps on how to set up the option, see this article.

 

To force multiple or all learners retake a training plan, follow these steps:

1. In the Name column, select the checkboxes of the learners for whom you want to force the training plan retake. To select all the learners enrolled in the training plan, select the Name checkbox in the column heading.

2. On the opened Actions panel, select Force retake.

Force retake is available on the Actions panel when at least one of the selected learners has the Completed training plan status. When you proceed with the bulk force retake, training plan progress will be reset for the selected learners and they'll have to retake the training plan. Any selected learners whose training plan progress status is In progress or Not started won't be influenced by this action.

 

NOTE   

The Force retake action isn't available on the Actions panel if the training plan progress is set to Not started and/or In progress.
