In addition, we will also create brand new modern Pages for the Course Catalog and Dashboard Pages with the new SPFX Web Parts installed.




To migrate your Course Catalog to a Modern View, you will need to do the following:

  • Make sure that you are the Global or SharePoint administrator.
  • Go to the LMS365 Global Settings > Course Catalog List > choose the required Course Catalog with Classic Add-ins and select it.



  •  Click the Migrate Course Catalog button on the actions panel.



Please be aware: In case of not enough permissions you will see an alert message.




Once these steps are done, you will need to wait for the migration to run through all the Course Sites and Training Plans, the time it takes to complete will vary depending on the number courses. After the successful migration, a message about the successfully completed migration process will appear in the Notification Center:
