Advanced Settings (D2L LMS)

Advanced Settings allows you, the IntelliBoard Admin (main subscriber), to set up additional settings to your connection that will be applied for you and your People.

Editing Advanced Settings

Most importantly, these settings will be applied for you and all your IB People. To set them up follow the steps below:


  • From navigation menu go to Settings + Options > Servers > [Your connection]
  • From the connection page, click Advanced Settings
  • This page will show the following filters

1. Active Connection

This is the main check box that enables a connection in the IntelliBoard.

NOTE: This MUST be enabled to manipulate your data using reports, monitors, etc.

2. Debug Mode

Enable this box to turn on debugging on your IntelliBoard.

NOTE: This is useful for developers.

3. Auto-load reports

In D2L, you have ability to load your reports Automatically or Manually.

If Auto-Load reports is enabled, your reports and monitors will be automatically loaded when any changes are done. E.g., if you change the Course in Course filter and click OK, the report will be automatically reloaded.

If Auto-Load reports is disabled, you will first need to select filters in the reports and monitors, and then manually load reports by clicking Apply.

4. Send "Failed Processing Notificaiton"

Enable this box to be notified of an data processing issue.

5. Course Filter Size

Select the size of the course filter in your reports. Whether it's a standard size or extended (to see more characters in the course titles), it's up to you! We recommend Extended for most D2L users.  

6. Course Filter Type

Select course filter type of the course filter in your reports. Hierarchy or Complex filter - it's up to you! 

7. Course Filter Order

Want to see your course filter in Alphabetical order? We got you! This server setting allows course filter to display courses in Standard or Alphabetical order!

8. Token Lifetime

The Token Lifetime is added in order to extend time for life token. With Token Lifetime option you can actually provide time, in seconds, in order to identify the length of login session. 

9. Course Filter Format

Select the format of the course filter in reports. This filter allows you to select how you want course names to display. For example, if you select Course Name + Course ID, your courses will be organized by Course name and course ID.

10. Data Hub Processing Hour

The connections are updated every  24 hours, BUT if you have a need to change Processing Time you are ABLE TO CHANGE IT ! The ability for user to set time when connection should update itself is available and it also processes the connection by YOUR time zone.
