Avendoo® online documentation

Define individual streams for displaying on the start page for the learner

Use

There are five streams available in Avendoo® on the Start page in the User’s frontend:

  • New releases (these are the ten newest course activations, which order is like in the catalog),
  • Continue the task,
  • Hotel booking,
  • Event date booking,
  • Recommendations and
  • Non-confirmed event participations.

The preview images of the streams got a size of 280 x 200 px.

You can define own, pre-filtered search results for your Start page in the User’s frontend via the individual streams. You define the streams per activation client.

You can show the teaser via CSS. The teaser is hidden per standard. Furthermore you can show via CSS also the learning format, the expected processing time, the date, course ratings, the language and points. Further information you get from our support team.

Individual streams offer the opportunity to show an IDD overview tile. This tile is ideal in combination with a stream of IDD relevant content.

This is an example for a configuration:

{"titleFilter":"","filter":{"iddRelevant":"IDD_RELEVANT;"},"limit":8,"offset":0,"forceReload":false, "orderBy" : "title"}

Further information about IDD configuration you find here.
