Symptom

Does the successfactors mobile app allow for ebook or ibook content files to be played on the device itself? Building content with links to those types of files, will the application support running those files?

Environment

SAP Learning Management System
SuccessFactors Mobile Application for Android and iOS

Cause

The iBook iOS Application cannot be Integrated with the SF iOS Application. Both the Applications are designed with Different Algorithms and are Embedded with different Architectural protocols.

Resolution

There are couple solutions that can be implemented as a way to not use those types of files, listed below. Those files types are not currently supported content file types so they would not be supported. If they work it will be under the non-supported realm meaning if anything were to break that functionaility it would still be expected behavior. 

  • iBook files can be converted into PDFs and then use it in iContent.
  • If the iBook files have any sort of animation, SCORM/AICC course types also can be created.
