Notify your users with manual send-outs directly from a course they are enrolled in or set up rules for automatic notifications to your users. You can notify them when new content becomes available and set rules for automatic reminders to different target groups when they haven't completed a course within a given time interval.
Send out a mail to users from a course
Course> Choose course> View Participants
Send out notifications to users that are enrolled in a course. Select either all users or filter for a subset that should receive a notification mail. I.e. you can filter for users which have not started the course and send out a reminder to them or update users about changes to the course. Chose either a template or start a free-form text.
Inform when a user has finished a course
Course> Choose course> Notifications> Change notifications
You can use this feature to send status notifications to specific users or groups to let them know that a user has completed the course.
Inform your users when a course is available:
Course> Choose course > Availability > "Notify user when course becomes available"
Select this option if you wish to send a notification to your users when a course is available. Then choose an e-mail template you would like to use.
Tip: link this to a time limit if you for example want to send a reminder to different user groups at different times. (When users with different tags/user categories have to take the course at different times)
Remind users to complete a course:
Course> Choose course > Availability > Remind user to finish course
Select this option if you would like to remind those users who have started a course but not yet completed it. Choose how often the reminder should be sent and the e-mail template you would like to use.
Notifications for expiring certificates
Course> Choose course> Certificate validity
If you have an active certificate with validity for any of your courses and wish to send a reminder when the certificate expires, select the option “Notify user when the certificate expires”
Then choose an e-mail template you would like to use.
Tip: The reminder is sent on the expiring date, therefore select an earlier date.
Notifications for recertification
Course> Choose course> Certificate validity and recertification
You can remind your users about recertifications and how long in advance they can be started. Select the option "Enable Recertification" and "Notify User by E-mail" option. Chose an email template or create your own.
