The course catalog contains the scheduled training sessions posted by an organizer (or in corporate plans any organizer in the same account). Course information includes the training session's title, description, price (if applicable), date(s) and registration link. The registration link for the catalog can be distributed to allow people to select courses and self-register.
If a training session has the maximum number of registrants and is posted to the catalog, it is marked full, and the Register link on the Catalog page is disabled.
You can create any number of catalogs and designate whether or not each is published. It is important to distinguish between a published and unpublished catalog:
A published catalog is available on the Internet where others can select training courses and self-register. A published catalog is listed on the Catalogs page of My Trainings, on the Publish Training to Catalogs menu and on the Catalogs section of Manage Training pages for courses already in the catalog.
A published catalog is shared by all organizers on a GoToTraining corporate account. Organizers can post training courses to any published catalog, including those created by other organizers in the same account.
An unpublished catalog is accessible only to the organizer who created it. It appears on the Catalogs page of My Trainings but displays Catalog Disabled if it is accessed by anyone other than the origanizer. It is not listed in the Publish Training to Catalogs menu, so no one is able to post courses to it.
If the catalog was created at the same time you scheduled a new training session and you added the course to the unpublished catalog, once you publish the catalog, the course appears in it.
You publish an unpublished catalog by clicking its title on the Catalogs page of My Trainings and checking the "Published" check box.
1. Click Catalogs in the left navigation of the My Trainings page.
2. Click Create New Catalog.
3. Enter the catalog title and catalog description.
4. Check "Published" to make the catalog available on the Internet and for inserting additional course descriptions.
Leave "Published" unchecked to keep others from viewing any content.
5. Click Save.
1. On the My Trainings page, click the title of the course you want to add to a catalog.
If you create a new training session, the Manage Training page automatically appears.
2. Click Edit in the Catalogs section to add the course to an existing catalog.
The Publish Training to Catalogs menu appears.
3. Click the box next to the catalog title in which you want the course to appear. You may click more than one catalog.
4. Click Save.
In the Catalogs section, you see the catalog title link for this course.
When creating a new catalog from the Manage Training page, you are given the options of publishing the new catalog and/or adding the training session to the catalog or both.
This option creates a new, published catalog which is available on the Internet where others can select a training session and self-register. A published catalog is listed on the Catalogs page, and you and other organizers (corporate plan) can add scheduled training sessions to it.
This option permits you to add the course to this new catalog whether the catalog is published or not. If the catalog is published, the course appears in it. If the catalog is not published, it nevertheless contains this course which is available whenever the catalog is subsequently published.
Each catalog has an address. The link in Link to Catalog can be distributed in any form of online communication to allow people to self-register. Click the catalog title on the Catalogs page, copy the Link to Catalog and paste it into an email.
From the Catalogs page, click the Share button and select Post to Twitter, Post to Facebook or Post to LinkedIn to share GoToTraining catalogs using social media sites.
To embed GoToTraining catalogs in websites, click the Embed button on the Catalogs page. You can preview the appearance of the embedded catalog as it would appear on your website and copy the embedded code to use in your website.
To delete a catalog, click its Trash iconon the Catalogs page. This does not delete the training sessions that are a part of this catalog.
If you delete a training session from the Manage Training page, it is deleted from any catalog to which it has been added or published, and all registration, material and test links become invalid.
1. On the My Trainings page, click the title of the training session that you want to remove from the catalog.
2. On the Manage Training page, click Edit in the Catalogs section.
3. On the Publish Training to Catalogs menu, uncheck the box next to the catalog(s) in which the training session appears.
4. Click Save.
Best Practice Tip: If you are on a corporate plan, it is a good idea to communicate with all organizers on your account about posting training sessions to the Course Catalog.
