Overview

The What's Next Tile is a tile on the Learner Dashboard which directs your Learners to their next training. This Tile allows your Learners to get right to the task at hand by making it easy to find the training that they need to do. This not only reduces time to learning but results in an increase in time spent engaging with learning opportunities of highest relevancy.
 
Tips:
  • The What’s Next tile is only available for the Private Dashboard because the data displayed is specific to the Learner, so it requires a logged in Learner to generate the tailored recommendations.
  • We recommend using the Tall Container feature for the What's Next Tile. When toggled on, the row of tiles will appear at twice their natural height. The What’s Next Tile is intended to be used with at least one other tall tile, for example, Collaborations Activity, Latest News, etc.2022-08-05_11-53-11.png
