How users access LMS365 courses and training plans

Introduction

Users can access LMS365 courses and training plans via different platforms: Microsoft SharePoint web pages, Microsoft Teams, the LMS365 mobile app, and the Viva Learning application. Progress is synced across all available platforms.

Regardless of what platform is used, users can reach LMS365 courses and training plans in different ways: via the SharePoint Home page, My Training Dashboard, the catalog home page, a link from a scheduled calendar event, an LMS365 notification, the Chat tab of the LMS365 app opened in Teams, a link to an LMS365 course or training plan shared in Teams, and via the Viva Learning application.

In this guide, we provide an overview of, and an introduction to, the different ways users can access LMS365 courses and training plans. 

 

Access training via the SharePoint Home page

Available platforms: Microsoft SharePoint web pages, Microsoft Teams. 

Every catalog created in LMS365 has a default SharePoint page called Home, which is created by the SharePoint site. From this page, users can navigate to the pages of My Training Dashboard and the Course Catalog, and courses and training plans highlighted by the organization via customization of the Home page.

Access training via My Training Dashboard

Available platforms: Microsoft SharePoint web pages, Microsoft Teams, and the LMS365 mobile app.

This page provides users with a personalized overview of the courses and training plans that they're enrolled in and have access to across all catalogs of the tenant. A summary of their training progress is also available.

My Training Dashboard has a left-navigation menu that allows users to navigate between sections to find detailed information about their training progress and transcripts, as well as a summary. Users can use this page to search for a course or training plan and take it up.

Access training via the catalog home page

Available platforms: Microsoft SharePoint web pages, Microsoft Teams, and the LMS365 mobile app.

Once a catalog is created in LMS365, a home page is generated for the catalog. The catalog home page provides learners with an overview of all published and available courses and training plans in the catalog.

The catalog home page is a good place for users to get an overview of the available courses and training plans, search for relevant training, and start the learning experience.

Access training via the Chat tab in Teams

Available platforms: Microsoft Teams.

The Chat tab in the LMS365 app for Microsoft Teams helps users find courses and training plans via a conversation with the LMS365 bot. The conversation with the LMS365 bot is driven by a set of bot commands. Courses and training plans are displayed in training cards, enabling users to quickly access them.

Access training via a link from an LMS365 notification

Available platforms: Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Teams, and the LMS365 mobile app.

LMS365 enables notifications to be automatically sent to relevant users by email, Microsoft Teams notifications, as scheduled appointments, and as push notifications in the LMS365 mobile app.

Notifications in LMS365 contain active links that redirect recipients to the home page of the relevant training. Find more information about LMS365 notifications in this article.

Access training via a link in a calendar event

Available platforms: Microsoft Outlook calendar, Microsoft Teams calendar, and the LMS365 mobile app.

A scheduled calendar event will be created by LMS365 for users who are enrolled in a course (either an individual course or a course that forms part of a training plan). When users view the calendar event, the title of the training acts as a direct link to the training home page.

Access training via the Microsoft Viva Learning app

Available platforms: the Viva Learning app.

Once integration between LMS365 and Microsoft Viva Learning is enabled, LMS365 courses and training plans are shown in Viva Learning, together with other available learning in the organization. Users in the organization can see LMS365 courses and training plans pushed to Viva Learning in cards, side by side with other learning content the organization chooses to display in Viva Learning, branded for a seamless learning experience.

From Viva Learning, users can open courses and training plans to start the training, share or recommend it, bookmark the training for later, or add it to their calendar to schedule the training.
