Notifying users when updates to their curriculum happen is critical to creating the best user experience possible. When assigning Courses to a Learner, a Notification can be triggered to make sure they are aware right away.
Go to Communications > click Notifications > click New
In the Alert Type field, select Course Assigned. Give this Notification a title and description. In the Course Selection field, select the (previously created) course(s) to be associated with this Notification.
*Note: Selecting courses from the Course Selection field will only work when the Selection Type is toggled to "Selected Items Only." When "All Items" is toggled, this will override any selection in the Course Selection field and any course that is assigned will have this notification triggered.
Lower on the page, give this Notification a Subject Title for when it arrives to the users, and craft the Course Assigned Message in the Text Editor.
The Dynamic Fields listed can be used within the Subject Title and Message to personalize the Notification to the user.
Enable Notification in Course Assignment
Next, go to Learning > click Course Assignments > select the Course associated with this new Notification
For the Send Notifications field toggle "Yes."
Click Save. Clicking Save will trigger the newly created Notification.
