Manage Academy Wall Settings

The academy wall is a place where users can post status updates and see news of their peers' activities. The wall in your academy can be used in different ways. For example, you can use the wall as a communication tool between employees only, or you can open up your wall to customers or members that follow your organization. 

Academy administrators are able to limit these interactions. The wall can be set to be visible only to employees, to external members of the academy, or it can be completely deactivated. Administrators control who can review and who can post to the corporate wall. For example, the wall can be set so employees can view posts made by administrators, but cannot post or comment. 


Navigation: UKG Pro LearningAdmin (hover) > Academy Settings Social Collaboration ModuleWall/news feeds

To activate the wall feature for your academy, turn the toggle to Yes. Once you enable the wall feature for your academy, users will be able to access it from the upper navigation bar (Wall tab) and see all of the academy posts.


To manage your Academy's Wall settings, the Wall must be activated. 

The following settings are available:

View and Post

Decide who will be able to view the Wall and who will be able to post on it. These restrictions apply to your academy's admins, training managers, employees, and external members. If a group of members has permission to post to the wall they will also be able to view it, but their permissions can be limited to only viewing the wall. The members who are able to post in the academy will also receive email notifications if someone interacts with a post they are involved in.

Require Administrator Approval

When checked, each post on the wall will not be posted until an administrator approves it. Administrators will receive an email notification about every post that needs their approval. Once they review the post, the user that posted it will also get a notification about the post's status.

Hide Auto-Generated Posts

The Learning solution also generates automated wall posts when one of the following actions takes place. You can decide how the auto-generated posts should be handled.
