Can I set courses to be assigned on future dates?

You have the option to schedule a course-assignment to be made one-off, on a specific future date.

To do so,  navigate to the desired course (not the course panel), and click the big blue Assign button.

You are then landing into the Course Panel, where you will be given the option to assign the course either to specific employees (Individual Assignment), or to a group of employees based on their job and location (Advanced Assignment).

Individual Assignment

To assign an individual to this course, simply click the Plus symbol next to their name in the left-hand column. Their name will then appear in the right-hand Selected column.
To remove an individual to the list, click the Minus symbol.

After selecting the desired individuals, you can select the future date that you need this course to be assigned to the selected users. You can give them a due date by typing in either the number of days in which they have to complete the course or a specific date by which the course needs to be completed. Please note that in both cases, the due date is being defined based on the logged-in user's (assignor's) preferred timezone.

Once you add value for the due date field, you will be able to see an extra checkbox “Unassign users once due date is missed''. Once selected, each user who is included in this assignment should be automatically unassigned from the course once the due date passes.

Add an attachment, if you want to, select if you want the prerequisites (if any) to be assigned too, and click on the Schedule Assignment button.

Once you have scheduled your assignment, you will be able to find it under the Scheduled Assignments block.
