The Docebo platform instance opens as a pop-up activated either when the user clicks on a button or interacts with an element - such as a link, or a string - on the external web page. When the pop-up opens, the platform instance shows the training content you, as the Superadmin, have selected for the user on the basis of the action he or she is performing, in order to provide the best learning on the fly experience, enriching it with ad hoc training.
Depending on the Docebo Flow configuration, users can be automatically provisioned so that their learning on the flow of work is not an event interrupted by the need to log in.
Docebo Flow is available as a web-based application on desktop and mobile platforms.
This article describes the features and functions of the Course Player widget for the Docebo Flow Launcher. For the Docebo Flow Building Blocks version of the widget, please refer to to Docebo Flow Building Blocks Course Player Widget.
Activating Docebo Flow
To activate Docebo Flow, reach out to Docebo via the Help Center, or by contacting your Account Manager (if your plan includes this option).
In order to make use of the Docebo Flow Launcher Course Player widget, you need to have the Docebo Flow Launcher installed. Please see Docebo Flow Launcher for more information.
Adding Widgets to the App Launcher Home Screen
As it happens for the pages of your platform, you can compose the layout of the App Launcher home screen with widgets. The preview of the App Launcher home screen is available on the right side of the App Launcher Builder tab. From here, you can add or remove widgets from the home screen and edit their configuration.
In order to add a new widget, click on the plus button in the preview box. In the Add New Widget slideout panel, select the widget and click on Next to start its configuration according to the options listed in the following chapters.
At any time, you can edit or remove widgets by clicking on the ellipsis menu at the end of the widget name and by selecting the corresponding option.
The Course Player Widget
The Course Player widget allows learners to view courses in real-time as they navigate the external web page.
Select the course you want to display in the widget in the General field by starting typing its title and selecting it among the search results. As an option, you can enable the Autoplay option so that the course will start as soon as the App Launcher opens, without requiring manual input.
If the training material you have selected is a downloadable file, you will be presented with a download button that you can press to save the file locally. In the event that you have already downloaded this file previously, you will be advised of this fact by the Course Player widget, while still being given the option to download it again.
Course Player Widget Visibility Rules
This widget is displayed in the App Launcher only if the authenticated user is entitled to see the course configured for the App Launcher. If, for example the “Catalog Enrollment Policy” is set so that only the Admin can enroll users, and the user can’t self enroll, the widget will not be displayed in the App launcher home screen. If the course player widget is the only widget in the App Launcher, the App Launcher itself will not be displayed. If there are other widgets in the App Launcher, then only the other widgets will be displayed. If you want the course to be visible to all users, set the course enrollment policy as Free, and the Course Subscriptions as open. More details on the course enrollment policy.
