Course Catalog - Emails

The Emails tab enables administrators to configure and customize the emails for the learning object (LO). However, when customizing the emails for an event, the customized emails only apply to new sessions that are created for the event; existing sessions are unaffected. The emails for an event can only be configured in Email Administration.

Note: This tab is not available for program LOs.

Design Note: An updated interface is available for this page, which can be enabled by administrators in Feature Activation Preferences. With the new design, the functionality of the page is unchanged.

To access the Course Catalog, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Catalog Management > Course Catalog. Then, search for the LO you want to modify and click the Options drop-down menu next to it. Click the Edit link.
