The upcoming release of SAP SuccessFactors Learning H12024 promises a set of enhancements that will further enhance learning experiences and facilitate better user engagement. Let's take a quick look at the key highlights of this upcoming release.

Enhanced Flexibility with Optional Assignments in ILX View

In the new release, users will benefit from the ability to access non-required assignments with a configurable removal action. This enhancement is supported by notification alerts for assignments that lack specific due dates, ensuring learners stay informed and engaged without the pressure of mandatory completion deadlines. This feature is particularly advantageous for encouraging an environment that values flexibility and self-paced education.

Administrator and Peer Recommendations

A notable addition is the integration of admin recommendations within the "Suggested for me" section, where users can now access suggestions from administrators and peers. This feature is designed to boost learner engagement by promoting courses, programs, and collections aligned with the organisation's vision and the user's personal development goals.

Customization and Branding with Banners and Custom Cards

Introducing the new banner functionality allows organisations to customise their learning portal with branding and messaging highlighting critical information and guiding learners through their educational journey. Simultaneously, the ability to create up to 100 custom cards allows for a highly personalised learning environment where admins can embed rich media and useful links directly on the learning home page. Please note that each user can only access upto 8 custom cards and each card can only support one video within it.

Simplified Learning History

The updated learning history interface emphasises ease of use and accessibility, making it simpler for users to review their past training records at a glance. This update facilitates better tracking of individual learning journeys and helps identify opportunities for further development.

Streamlined Learning Experience

With the new update, the Integrated Learning Experience (ILX) has been further enhanced and admins now have the option to hide the legacy experience completely so users only access learning in a single experience.

Bulk Merge Users

A significant operational enhancement in the 1H 2024 release is the Bulk User Merge feature. This new functionality allows administrators to efficiently merge learning records from multiple source users to a single target user through the Import Tool. Previously, merging user records could only be performed individually, but now, administrators can handle merges in bulk, which significantly cuts down on time and effort. Each import file can contain up to 200 records, with a monthly cap of 5000 merges. This capability not only streamlines administrative processes but also minimizes errors with built-in data validation features and provides reports for verification.

Other Notable Enhancements

Enhancements to SCORM 1.2 include an increased `cmi.suspend_data` limit, from 4,096 to 64,000 characters. This allows for better progress tracking in longer courses without needing to switch to SCORM 2004 or compress data, facilitating effective learner management and improved course outcomes.

The update to the Learning Cross-Domain Proxlet, aligning with OpenJDK 17.0.9, ensures continued support for third-party content servers. This maintains high standards of security and functionality, with an upgrade to OpenJDK 17.0.9 required to utilize the new proxlet version.

The phased deprecation of unload browser events in Chrome and Edge necessitates updates to SCORM and AICC content. This change addresses potential issues in tracking and data loss, urging content creators to eliminate reliance on unload events for critical data handling.

The Instance Refresh tool now supports up to 500 GB of learning schema and allows direct refresh from live production instances. This automation reduces manual intervention, streamlining updates and maintenance for large-scale learning environments.

As we look ahead to the 1H 2024 release of SAP SuccessFactors Learning, it’s exciting to see the dedication to improving the user experience, enhancing administrative capabilities, and promoting flexibility and customisation. In my opinion, SAP has made significant progress in enhancing the learning experience, and it's a big step forward to witness the Integrated Learning Experience (ILX) coming together. These updates not only meet the evolving needs of learners and administrators but also mark a significant advancement in integrating learning and development seamlessly into organisational growth. It's thrilling to see how these innovations promise to elevate the learning landscape.

For more detailed information and continuous updates, keep an eye on the SAP Help Portal and join the ongoing discussions in the SAP community blogs. As we embrace these new features, the journey towards a more informed, engaged, and capable workforce unfolds with SAP SuccessFactors Learning at the forefront.

Hi all!
Many thanks for the post, @sandeepnahata! Really insightful!

I still have a question regarding My Team section. I cannot test it in the demo system. But does anyone know if it is accessible from the new Learning Home Page?

I believe, you can access from here  but there's no portlet available yet, right?

@javtor Thats correct. There is no portlet/tile available on the home page. However, the ILX homepage now supports custom cards so you can create a card that is targetted to "Managers only" and have that available on the homepage linking the user to the My Teams Page.

I'm trying to create Custom Cards and Banners in the Learning Preview / Test environment to explore functionality and create a mockup of the new homepage, but I'm unsuccessful. Every time I try to upload the image files for the Cards or Banners, the system stays on this loading screen and doesn't proceed.  I've confirmed the correct file type, size, aspect ratio, etc. Is this happening to anyone else?

@jeffbalmer i checked in my instance and it works as expected. Often companies block the upload of images etc. You can try to delete cache to remove old version of the UI libraries and then try again or have a colleague try to see ifs a company level block

Hi all,

I don't know if it has to do with the release, but I've been advised by a customer that you cannot edit the font and the size of the tokens in the Email Notifications

I've tested in several clients' LMS...

Is that expected behaviour? and why? Or am I missing something?

Many thanks in advance,

Javier

Hello All,

Where did the optional feedback surveys go? I can see them assigned to learners when they complete a course but do not see them anywhere on the home page?

Dear @michaelkerwin, we have also highlighted that to SAP and we learned that optional surveys are not yet accessible in the New learning home page. 

So our learners switch between the New Learning Homepage and old page when it comes to completing the optional surveys as well.

Hi, 

I believe the date for the universal push of the new homepage is 2H 2024 - is someone able to confirm? 

Thanks!
