I have added a text to the item but it is not showing in the Learning Plan notification.

item specific Notification Text.png


Learning Management System (LMS) 1511 and higher

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the item you wish to enter a description for  (related/more > Notification > click on Edit under the Item Notification Text)
  2. Assign the item to a user
  3. run the APM Learning Plan Notification
  4. the notification does not contain the  modified text


Related syntax tags must be added to the APM notification templates in order for them to pick up the description you have entered


  • Please make sure that the Notification Editor is enabled

System Admin -> Configuration -> Global Variables -> Use Editor Content when sending Email Notification


  • Choose from the following syntax tags which one(s) should be added :

 <CPNT_INSTRUCTIONS/> Item specific instructions

<CPNT_INSTRUCTIONS_ADDED/> Item specific instructions for list of items added to users learning plan

<CPNT_INSTRUCTIONS_MODIFIED/> Item specific instructions for list of items modified in the users learning plan

<CPNT_INSTRUCTIONS_DELETED/> Item specific instructions for list of items deleted from the users learning plan


In the following APM notification templates:






Sample template for  APM_TRAINING_OVERDUE
