How do I install Impact in Blackboard Learn Original?

To enable the building block, select Available in the Availability list for the building block. Blackboard Learn lists the permissions that the building block requires. This is a security feature to protect Blackboard Learn from dangerous content. If you are concerned about the permissions given to a building block, contact the vendor before approving the permissions.

Add Support for Users
To make the Impact Support Center available to ALL users, navigate to the Impact Dashboard's Support Center Access tab.
- Only enable this setting on staging and if Impact Support is included in your license. Do not enable production until after the Impact Support Center has been configured with your implementation consultant.
- For more information on the Impact Support button visibility, visit How do I manage Impact Support button visibility?
Create Hierarchy Roles
If you would like to be able to use Institutional Hierarchy nodes to filter Impact reports or target messages, articles, and campaigns, enable Create hierarchy-based roles (if users are directly aligned with nodes) and/or Create course hierarchy-based roles (if courses are aligned with nodes).
Enable Anonymous Mode
If you would like to collect user activity data anonymously, turn on Anonymous mode. This will ensure that only the user’s PK1_ID is transferred to the Impact server.
Note: If turned on, this will limit Impact functionality. This affects the user information sent with support ticket submissions from the Support Center and user information exported from the tool adoption reports from Insights.
Turn Synchronization ON if you wish to enable Course Activity Reports. Note: Although the initial synchronization should not impact performance, we have added the option to perform the synchronization during nighttime (ON during off-hours).
