Naming Convention for Activities

The naming convention for activities is DOMAINID-ACTIVITY TYPE-ACTIVITY REFERENCE

  • DOMAINID= Campus (you will always put "CSUF")
  • ACTIVITY TYPE= Depending on what type of activity you are creating, you will select one of the following:
    • ILTCRSE= ILT Course
    • ILTCLSS= ILT Class
    • CURRIC= Curriculum
  • ACTIVITY REFERENCE= This may vary from department to department, however it should consist of 3-4 letters representing the department and 3-4 numbers representing the activity number

Example:

Parking and Transportation may list their course as:                     CSUF-ILTCRSE-PTS001

Environmental Health & Safety, may list their ILT Class as:         CSUF-ILTCLSS-EHS100

Naming Convention for Audiences

Understanding Audiences:

  • Audiences group users together based upon rules and rule sets
  • Organizations, Jobs and other user attributes can be leveraged for audiences

We recommend consulting with the ETC prior to creating Audiences.

The naming convention for audiences should follow:  DOMAINID-AUDI-AUDIENCE REFERENCE

  • DOMAINID= Campus (you will always put "FULLERTON")
  • AUDI= Activity Type (leave as "AUDI")
  • AUDIENCE REFERENCE= This consists of 3-4 letters representing the training the Audience is assigned to

Example:

A Conflict of Interest Audience would be listed as:         FULLERTON-AUDI-COI    

A Defensive Drivers Audience would be listed as:           FULLERTON-AUDI-DD

Naming Convention for Organizations

Understanding Organizations:

  • Organizations are groups of users based upon employee data, assignment requirements or other campus defined data
  • Adding users to Organizations is the CSU recommended way to assign users to activities

The proper naming convention for organizations is DOMAINID-ASGN-ORGANIZATION REFERENCE.

  • DOMAINID= Campus (you will always put "FULLERTON")
  • ASGN= Activity Type (leave as "ASGN")
  • ORGANIZATION REFERENCE= This consists of 3-4 letters representing the training the Organization is created for

Example:

A Respiratory Protection Organization would be listed as:                                                     FULLERTON-ASGN-RP

A Procurement Card Industry Standards Organization would be listed as:                     FULLERTON-ASGN-PCI
