Configure the display of items on the learner profile card

The Profile Cards tool allows you to control which items display in the learner profile card, such as picture, email, and online status. For example, when hovering over a learner’s name or profile picture in the New Assignment Evaluation Experience, the learner’s user profile card appears. By default, the card displays the user’s online/offline status, as well as links to:

  • Email

  • Instant Message

  • User progress

  • User profile

  • Org defined ID

Note: If enabled, the Org defined ID only displays in learner profile cards from the New Assignment Evaluation Experience.

Clicking any of the links in the profile card opens a new window.

Hovering over the name of profile image of a learner opens a profile card with links to Email and Instant Message the learner, plus User Progress and the learner’s User Profile

Figure: Hovering over the name of profile image of a learner opens a profile card with links to email and instant message the learner, plus User Progress and the learner’s User Profile.

Note the following:

  • D2L recommends displaying the Org Defined Id field only if existing business rules are satisfied, such as User Information Privacy permissions and the d2l.Settings.OrgHasOrgDefinedId configuration variable.

  • The User Profile card also respects the settings in User Information Privacy, Admin Configuration, Preferred Names, and Online Status Preference.

  • If enabled, the value of the Org Defined Id field also appears in the old User Profile card and the new web components.

  • Display of the Org Defined Id field is not affected by the d2l.Tools.Discuss.User.ShowOrgDefinedId configuration variable.
