To create a path, just click on "Add a path".
First, you need to name your path, optionally you can assign a category and add a description.
Next, you can define if you want to notify users about some events - a new path for them or a congratulations note when they're finished. You can choose a default notification or create your own.
Below notifications you can see options regarding applications. You can set the path as optional (watch out, once you set it, it can't be reversed!) - then you can decide, who can apply, when they can apply and who manages those applications.
You can also set time restrictions for the whole path - the dates will apply to all of the elements.
Next, as with every object, you can set the cyclicity and certificates.
When you save the path, you get access to new tabs.
First of them is called "Elements", where you can choose what the path should consist of. Using an "Add" button, you get access to the list of all of the elements available on the platform.
There you can search for the elements you want to add - just tick the checkbox and proceed.
Confirm that these are the elements you want to add and configure their properties.
Start conditions allow you to lock the element until another one is finished.
You can also set time restrictions for each element instead of for the whole path.
While adding the element, decide who should be notified about certain events, that's up to you.
When you're done with the elements, you can also add competences that users will gain after completing the path. Just go to the "Skills" tab and, just as with the elements, choose them from the list and add them.
"Assignments" and "Assignments to groups" work the same way - they allow you to choose users or whole groups of users that will have access to the path and the elements inside. Both users and groups are chosen from the list (exactly like elements or competences).
Last tab shows results from the path and all its elements. You can filter them, using views, export them to Excel file and edit the results manually.
Configuration of directories is even easier - it has fewer options, because the directories are always optional.
In the "Properties" tab, you just fill in the name and descriptions, in "Elements" you choose them the same way as in a path, and in "Assignments" and "Assignments to groups" you choose users that will see the directory.
