This guide covers the steps of adding history for a user. This feature is often used if you need to record that a person completed on-the-job training, external training and anything else (including non-training activities) that you want to track. This is a tool for someone, including non-technical users, on the back-end to easily record that some activity was finished.

Note: While history can have many different configurations, the workflow is the same. For example, you might have a version field enabled to record against what version a user trained. A premise of AbilityLMS is flexibility and adding history for different industries can and will have different needs. This guide is generic and does not cover all possible use cases. If you need something more specific in adding history, please contact MaxIT support.
