Hide Course Catalog from learners
This will hide or display all course catalogs for all users in your Learning Management System.
List "orphaned" courses on the root level
An orphaned course is a course that is not in any catalog. When this option is off, these courses will not be listed in the course catalog or search results. When turned on, these courses will appear on the main level of the course catalog next to your top-level catalogs. Note that if you turn this option on then all courses, even those that you have not finished configuring, will be available in the course catalog unless you place them in a restricted catalog.
Enable Training Calendar
Checking this box will display the Training Calendar on both the My Information and Training pages. The Training Calendar displays upcoming ILT sessions, due and expiring enrollments for a learner. View this article for more information on this feature.
Enable Course Catalog Search
This will hide or display the search feature in your Learning Management System.
**Notes About Searching
- If a Course or Learning Object is in a Restricted Catalog and the User is not logged in (but Search is active per LMS settings), the item will not be shown.
- If the User is logged in and the Course or Learning Object is in a Restricted Catalog, then the search match will only be shown if the User is in any Group that has Catalog access to any Restricted Catalog the Course is a part of.
Hide restricted catalog names from users that do not have access
If you have created restricted catalogs and you select this option, those catalogs will not appear in any listing to users that do not have access to them. Leaving this option off will show the catalog names, however those users will be blocked from accessing them.
