How to Set Course Completion Due Dates and Automate Reminders
Step 1: Go to the course settings you want to set a reminder for. It will take you to the General tab by default.
Step 2: Scroll down to Due Date & Reminders.
Step 3: Set a specific date for course completion. Also, you can activate an email reminder and set it to be sent to your learners before the due date arrives. More than one reminders can be added by clicking Add Reminder. Edit the Email Template to create a customized reminder email.
You can also set an expiration date for your course. Once expired, you can either choose to do nothing or allow reattempt for your learners. If you want, you can set email notifications for your learners and yourself regarding course expiration. There's an email Sample that you can edit to create a customized email notification.
Alternatively, instead of setting a completion date and expiration date, you can set a time period as the duration of the course. Similarly, you can set an expiration time as well.
