Edit Certification Due Date

On the Certification Management page for a certification, certification owners can edit the due date for multiple users. The due date can only be edited for users that are currently enrolled in the certification and have a certification status of Pending Approval, In Progress, In Progress/Past Due, Certified (Renewal In Progress), Pending Completion Approval, Pending Prerequisite, or Certified (Pending Completion Approval). If a certification is Expired or Certified, the user does not appear.

You must be a certification owner to access the Certification Management page for a certification.

To edit the certification due date for multiple users, on the Certification Management page, click the Edit Due Date link in the Users section. This opens the Edit Certification Due Date page. Note: The option to edit the certification due date for multiple users is only available for one time certifications as well as the initial and renewal periods for fixed date certifications. For fixed date certifications, the change only applies to the current period.

At the top of the page, the certification's Title, Description, and Certification Owners are displayed.
