Configuring the FinPa Brands

Before any information can be exchanged, we need to:

  • Set up the connection to the FinPa API.
  • Set up what should happen in VETtrak when results are sent from FinPa to VETtrak.

It is possible to connect VETtrak to more than one instance of FinPa, and each of these instances is called a "FinPa brand". The FinPa connection and resulting options are set up in the FinPa LMS Brand Configuration Wizard.

To set up your FinPa brand(s), go to Manage > Configuration, right-click on the FinPa LMS Brands, and select Add FinPa brand.

  1. Enter the name of this FinPa brand.
  2. If this is to be the default brand, tick this box. One brand must be set as the default. If you only have one FinPa instance, this box must be ticked.
  3. Enter the web address of the FinPa LMS API.
  4. Enter your FinPa API access ID.
  5. Enter your FinPa API secret key.
  6. Test the connection.
  7. If you tick this box, a welcome email will be automatically sent from FinPa to clients when they are transferred from VETtrak to FinPa.
  8. If you tick this box, students will only be able to access their online learning during the period specified for their enrolment. If the box is unticked, they will be able to access the online learning materials at any time.
  9. Click Next to continue to the next page.

The settings on this  page determine the defaults for what will happen in VETtrak when a result is recorded in FinPa and transferred to VETtrak. When importing results, it will be possible to override these settings for individual records, if required.

  1. Tick this box if you want a result to be automatically recorded in VETtrak when a unit is started in FinPa.
  2. Select, for each state, the result that you want to appear in VETtrak when a student starts work on a unit in FinPa. If you want to set the same result for all states, select it on the first row and then click the row header to duplicate it to all states. NOTE: It is not mandatory to select a result for every state.
  3. The value set here determines what end date is allocated to units in VETtrak when they are started in FinPa.
  4. If you tick this box, the date calculated by the value set at (3) will not be set after the enrolment end date - the enrolment end date will be used instead. NOTE: When units are complete in FinPa, the end date supplied from FinPa will always be used, even if it is after the enrolment end date.
  5. Tick this box if you want a result to be automatically recorded in VETtrak when a unit is completed in FinPa.
  6. Select, for each state, the result that you want to appear in VETtrak when a student completes a unit in FinPa. If you want to set the same result for all states, select it on the first row and then click the row header to duplicate it to all states. NOTE: It is not mandatory to select a result for every state.
  7. (Optional) Select the Delivery Strategy for units resulted via FinPa. (This will be ignored for any units that already have a delivery strategy recorded in VETtrak.)
  8. If a unit already has a start date recorded in VETtrak, and the student starts it before this in FinPa, indicate if this should alter the VETtrak start date.
