We added a new notification to the system this afternoon: ‘New Course Assigned’. This one has been on our list for a long time. It notifies an existing user that they have been assigned a course.

For single course assignments, the course description and a direct link to the course is included in the email. For multiple course assignments, the list of courses assigned is included and a link to the user’s training plan. It does not handle the case where the user is assigned content as part of a rule-based assignment (by job title, department, etc). We have plans of adding this capability in the future.

Like all our email notifications, the text of the message can be customized for your organization. Users can opt out of receiving it if you allow them to.

How to enable it

We haven’t enabled this email by default for existing clients. Here’s how you turn it on:

  1. Ensure that you are currently administering the organization that you want to turn the email on for. Go to the ‘Configuration’ tab and click on ‘Emails’ in the menu.
  2. Turn the ‘New Course Assigned’ email on. Click ‘Save Changes’.

We hope you and your clients find this useful!
