💡 Important Considerations

  • Before configuring expiry emails, make sure that the course has an expiration day set. If the course's expiration day is set to 0, it indicates that the course has no expiration, and as a result, you will not be able to set up expiry emails.
  • You can choose to send the reminder emails before/after course expiry and also define the number of days when the email should be triggered.
  • A maximum of 4 reminder emails can be setup for course expiry.
  • The emails are triggered at 12:00 AM IST (this timing may vary depending on the availability of services and workload levels).
  • Max 730 days course expiry limit can be added.
  • You can set up the universal email template by visiting Dashboard > Settings > Templates > select Course Expiry Email, make the necessary changes as required and Save Changes. Learn more about setting Course Expiry here: Setting Up Course Expiry.
  • You cannot turn off or enable the expiry emails for a single user; however, they can opt out by going to their dashboard, selecting 'notifications,' and using the toggle bar to switch it off.

  • Variables {{organizationname}}, {{coursename}}, and {{courseexpirydate}} can be included in your emails subject line and body for personalization. When added, these variables automatically insert your organization name, the specific course name, and its expiry date, respectively.
