2569222 - Not for Credit status for Program or Fail in Program.


The Admin wants to register a fail for a User in a Program.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM suite
  • Learning Management System (LMS)
  • Program completion


We cannot associate "Not for credit" completion status for programs because once the user takes all the items in the programs irrespective of completions status pass/failed the program will be completed . If the user won't take the items the program won't be completed since you cannot provide any status if the program is in incomplete state.


The credits or PASS/FAIL completion status will only be given for items not for programs , this is working as per the current system design.

Currently it is not possible to fail a program or to receive a completion status not for credit. Programs combine learning events to create a schedule of learning.

Workaround: (found in the Community)

We created an item named the same thing as the Program and included Incomplete in the title.  See attached.

When an associate has to either drop out of a program, or does not complete it, we remove the program from their learning plan so they no longer receive notifications and then record learning against the item.  Any notes, percentage of completion or details can be added to the comments section.
