2511061 - How to make Programs sections completion mandatory to move to next sections


Users are able to skip items from a Program section, leaving incomplete items behind.


Learning Management System Core


To prevent users from skipping items of sections in a Program, in the Admin side, go through the following options:

  1. Learning >
  2. Programs >
  3. Search and access the desired Program >
  4. Click on the edit button of the Setting box >


      5. It is possible to see in the "Progress Restriction" line the check box to activate the option to "Users must complete previous sections before starting next section". Check the box, click on the buttons "Save" and "Done".


With the box checked, the users will only be able to advance if the section is completed.

**NOTE: As per Product Team, "Optional" activities are not considered for Progress Restriction. This function only applies to activities marked as "Required". **
