2544732 - External request - total hours report


The external request has its total hours field filled out (B.5. field), however when any report related to user learning history is generated (e.g.: Learning History report), it does not populate the total hours column.


Learning Management System Core

Reproducing the Issue

  1. External request created, completed and verified
  2. An item is created in the user's Items Completed section
  3. The report is generated the total hours column is not populated


It is working as expected. Today, there is no system standard report, in the admin or user side, that brings the total hours of an external training request.


The table that stores the total hours is: pa_ext_learning_rqst. With it, It is possible to try to customize a report to bring such info from this table. Please, review the KBA 2379690 for more information related to the custom reports.

Also, it is possible to request an enhancement. We encourage you to submit it to have this functionality considered within future development cycles, you can do this on our Customer Influence portal at For detailed steps on how to raise an enhancement request please follow the attached KBA 2167560.
