Job Profile Enhancements
There are a number of Job Profile Enhancements included in 23.03.
New Job Profile Competency Quota Analytics
New Analytics Screen
User will select:
- One (or more) Job Profile Group - This is a required selection.
- One (or more) Organization - This is an optional selection.
After making the selections, the user will select the Start Analysis button.
The Columns and Rows are the same as Report R140. However, some of the elements will be clickable (open in a new tab or window).
For each row, the following data will be reported:
- Competency - The name of the Competency with the Code in parenthesis. If the user has either read-only or unlimited set for the Role Access Control > Competency Models, the competency name will be a link to the COMPETENCYEDITOR transaction for the specific competency id. From here, the administrator can change the Quota and the Target Levels.
- Users Assigned Job Profile - For each user, if the user has either read-only or unlimited set for Role
Access Control > Learning Center Summary and Career Development Center, the column header for
each user will link to the Learning Center in the Career Development Center.
NOTE: To make use of information after clicking the link, other Role Access Control settings may need to be enabled for the administrator - such as Review Records/Transcript, Review Transcript History, Career Center, Job Profiles, Competency, etc.
For each user column, the percentage of competencies awarded is rounded to the nearest whole number.
Role Access Control
A new setting has been added to the Role Access Control settings (LISTPERMS transaction) under the
Compliance Analysis section. This permission will enable access to this new Analytics feature.
Password Security Enhancements
A new property can be added to the ekp.properties file to set a default password for all newly created users. It can be any value the customer desires. Enter the property and restart Tomcat to implement.
Password Reset Emails
There are two changes in 23.03 related to password resetting:
- Notification email - When a password is changed in the UI, either by the learner or another user
themselves to access the User Editor, PeopleFluent Learning will send a notification that the password was changed. This will not include the new password. This email uses an email template that can be edited and configured in the System Configuration.
- Password reset - When using the Forgot Password email, instead of sending a new password, PeopleFluent Learning will send a link that takes the user to a new page to reset the password themselves. This email does not use an email template, but it can be translated using the language string functionality.
NOTE: The existing Send Reset Password Mail in the Use Editor has not changed. That email will still
include the new password.
Exam Data Loader
In 22.07, we generalized a customization to allow CSV data loading of exams and exam sections using the
Background Task (OPML) functionality. In 23.03, the first of those is added to the User Interface. The Exam
CSV Loader will allow the creation and update of exam metadata. This does not include sections or assigning questions to sections.
Coming in 23.07 the remaining portions will be added to the UI: Exam Section data loader to include section metadata and Exam Section Questions to assign questions or questions pools to sections.
Minor UI Enhancement
For several screens with HTML <table> elements, we have modified the page to allow those pages to be more readable on a mobile device. This includes some changes to the HTML itself as well as CSS added into the PeopleFluent LMS Default skin. See the Skin Customization Guide for information on how to create a new skin using the PeopleFluent Default as the basis.
