You cannot assign a learning plan to an audience while creating it. In order to assign an audience to a learning plan, you must save it first and then edit it. This is because a learning plan must exist in Fuse with a unique object ID, before it can be assigned to an audience. For information on how to assign an audience to a learning plan, see Edit Learning plans.
If selected, the learning plan is not visible to any community members or audiences in the community via the My Learning plans page, community pages and in the Learning plans widget, once you have clicked Save. This option is selected by default.
Example: you might select this option if you have created a first draft of a learning plan and do not want users and audiences in the community to see it before it is ready.
Take note of the following points when generating reports:
Unassigned learning plans are still discoverable when searching in Fuse, however, this is dependent on type of community the user belongs to, as well as whether the user is using Fuse in the web browser or on the Fuse mobile app. For more information about learning plan visibility in search, see the Learning plan visibility in search results section below.
