How can I give credit for external training?

To keep track of training that takes place outside Schoox, you need to set your credits as "uploadable" and allow users to claim that they have acquired certain credits outside Schoox. 

1. Setting up your credits as uploadable

To set up your credits as uploadable, navigate to your Admin panel and select Credits > Create Types from the left side menu. 

Choose the type of credit you prefer to edit. Under Uploadable, select Yes.

2. Create Rules

After creating the types, select Create Rules from the same panel. Select the Type, the related job and specify the number of needed credits. You can also select the courses category, which implies that credits will be acquired only from courses that belong in this particular category. Click on  Add New Rule to finish.

Please note that you have the option to recalculate the credits for employees that had completed their training prior to the rule set up. Simply click on the button Recalc. However, the credits and completions that will show up in the Credits Dashboard, will be only those that occurred in the defined time frame.

Note: When you select Recalc, no credits will be acquired if there aren't any course completions within the specific time frame you've defined.

What the end user sees

Employees and trainees can claim that they have acquired certain credits (from the existing academy credit types) from external training in their personal portfolio.  To do so, they need to nagivate to the Credits tab of the ePortfolio (Me > ePortfolio).

3. Insert the date of certification/training.
