*Important Notes:

Ongoing Skillsoft Percipio + Compliance Platform Issues HRS LOD is addressing:

  1. Historical Training Completions Import from Skillport:
    1. Compliance Platform Status:
      1. Final import of historical training completions was completed the 2nd week of October.
    1. Percipio Platform Status:
      1. Historical training records imports were finalized the 2nd week of October.
      2. To view historical completions on the Percipio Platform:
        • Select your name from the top right hand corner
        • Select “Activity” from the menu
        • Select “External Learning”
      3. Historical completions for trainings completed in Skillport show up as “External Learning,” and not “Activity,” which means the trainings don’t reflect correctly in Journeys
        • To resolve this issue, HRS LOD is granting waivers/completions for trainings that are included for Journeys
          • However, while we can grant waivers/completions for up to 1000 individuals for one content item at a time, there’s no bulk user import feature, so each individual has to be looked up and manually added individually, which is a time-intensive process
        • This issue has been submitted to Skillsoft for resolution
          • As time allows, HRS LOD is continuing to grant waivers/completions manually while we await resolution of the issue from Skillsoft.
          • To date, we’ve granted 5K+ waivers/completions in the WSU Training for Supervisors, Community & Equity Certificate Program, and Research Administration Series Journeys.
        • HRS LOD anticipates that the process of manually granting waivers and completions for courses within Journeys will not be complete until the end of 2022, at the earliest.
