How do I set up "course ends soon" alerts for students?

During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

You can easily configure Buzz courses to automatically alert students when a course is getting close to ending. Students see these alerts in the Activities (Course Home) and Performance tools.

  1. Open Domain Settings.
  2. In User Options > Student Options, enter (in days) how long you want the alert to appear for students before the course ends in the Course-ending countdown (days) field.
  1. Save.
New UI

You can easily configure Buzz courses to automatically alert students when a course is getting close to ending. Students see these alerts in the Activities (Course Home) and Grades tools.

  1. Open the side menu in Domain > Details.  
  2. Select Edit Settings.
  1. In User Options > Student Options, enter (in days) how long you want the alert to appear for students before the course ends in the Course-ending countdown (days) field.
  1. Save.

We are using the old UI and do not see that in the User Options. How can we add that?

Hey Hieu, it should be their by default. I just verified it in a couple of domains. Could you refresh you page and check again in the Domain Settings > User Options > Student Options?

Yes, I see it now. Thanks, Brad!
