Course Due Date

In both cases you need to go to LMS365 Admin Center > Course List > select the relevant e-Learning course > Course Management panel > Manage Course Settings to get directly to the Settings section of the course creation/editing panel or Edit Course to get to the Basic Details section and then navigate to the Settings section.

If the Due Date is enabled, you have two variants of the Set Due Date as option:

  • number of days after enrollment - this variant allows to set the due date taking into account the learner's enrollment day and time. For example, if you set 20 days after enrollment - the countdown starts from the learner's enrollment date. When 20 days pass the due date is reached.
  • a fixed date - this variant allows to set the due date at the exact day and time. The countdown starts from the moment the course is published. On the selected date the due date is reached. 

In both cases, learner will see the exact course due date - hourglass icon - on the course home page web part in the Information section.
