d2l.Settings.PaginationNumbering Org

Range - [10, 20, 50, 100, 200]

Pagination view - 20

Use this configuration variable to set pagination defaults for your organization in Classlist and Grades.

The range of options in the d2l.Settings.PaginationNumbering configuration variable is as follows:

  • [10, 20, 50, 100, 200]
  • [25, 50, 75, 100, 200]
  • [35, 75, 100, 150, 200]
  • [50, 100, 150,200, 250]

The d2l.settings.paginationNumbering configuration variable will continue to respect the settings in the following configuration variables:

  • D2l.Tools.Grades.GradesList.MaxSpreadsheetRecords
  • D2l.Tools.Grades.GradesList.MaxRecords

The D2l.Tools.Grades.GradesList.MaxSpreadsheetRecords and the D2l.Tools.Grades.GradesList.MaxRecords configuration variables set the maximum number of total grades records that are displayed on the Enter Grades page.

Therefore, if your MaxRecords is set to 4000 (current default), and you have 20 grade items in your gradebook, the maximum number of users and respective information that you could display would be under 200 on a single page. If the largest pagination option has been chosen (75,100, 200, 250) then you may only see (75, 100) as available options for that gradebook.

d2l.Settings.PortalOnlySSL

Org

OFF
