2378430 - LMS: Scheduled Offering Registration Notification with Calendar Invites by Segment

Symptom

When registered for a scheduled offering that contains several segments, calendar invites need to be delivered for each separate segment.  

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Learning - b1608 and higher

Resolution

As of Q3 2016 release (b1608), recipients configured to receive registration notifications for a scheduled offering will now receive separate segment notifications for each segment of the scheduled offering.

To enable this feature:

  1. Access System Admin > Configuration > Global Variables > Mail.
  2. Check the boxes for 'Enable Vcalendar attachments' and 'Send Vcalendar attachments as Calendar invite'.
  3. Save changes.

Ensure the SystemEnrollmentNotification and VLE_Entrollment templates include the VCAL code below (for legacy editor):

SystemEnrollmentNotification Template:

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
METHOD:REQUEST
<LOOP>
BEGIN:VEVENT
UID:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_UID>"/>
SEQUENCE:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_SEQUENCE>"/>
ORGANIZER: <ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_ORG>"/>
SUMMARY:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_SUM>"/>
LOCATION:<&VCAL_LOCN>
DESCRIPTION:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&VCAL_DESC>"/>
DTSTART:<&VCAL_DTSTART>
DTEND:<&VCAL_DTEND>

BEGIN:VALARM
TRIGGER:PT15M
ACTION:DISPLAY
END:VALARM
END:VEVENT
</LOOP>
END:VCALENDAR

VLE_ENROLLMENT Notification template:

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
BEGIN:VEVENT
1:<&STUD-URL>
SUMMARY:<ESCAPEFORVCAL value="<&TITLE>"/>
2:<&STUD-URL>
DTSTART:<&VCAL_DTSTART>

DTEND:<&VCAL_DTEND>

<&VCAL-DESC>
5:<&STUD-URL>
END:VEVENT
6:<&STUD-URL>
END:VCALENDAR
