We would like to remove/turn off the ability for users to Recommend a Learning item to other users . We were wondering if there was a way to remove the option entirely.

Reproducing the Issue

User is seeing an option to Recommend courses to others when they search for courses in Browse Catalog.


We would want to disable this option for the users.


The cause that the users are seeing this is because the role they are assigned to has the Workflow in it that allows them to Recommend Courses to thier peers.

The workflow responsible is "Recommend to Peer"


If you do not want to allow users to Recommend courses to thier peers, this workflow needs to be removed from the user role.

Remove “Recommend to Peer” workflow from users roles

  • System Admin > Security > Role Management > Edit user workflow > Workflow >  Expand All > Search for “Recommend to Peer” workflow and click on the check box to Remove it from the user role and click on Apply changes.

Once this workflow is removed, the user will not see the option to Recommend courses to his/her peers.
