The Insufficient Session Seats pop-up notification provides two options for this scenario:
- Increase the session's available seats - Selecting this option and submitting the learning assignment causes the number of available seats, or Maximum Registration, for the session to automatically increase to accommodate all the users in the assignment. Note: Session seats will only increase if the Assign, Approve, and Register option was selected for the assignment.

Important: When assigning a large curriculum to a high volume of users, the assignment may take longer to process because it must process every child LO inside the curriculum against each user’s transcript. This means you may see a standard assignment in the Queued status, or a dynamic assignment’s summary page that has not yet populated, for a longer period of time than normal. This is more apparent when assigning several large curricula to a high volume of users.
Tip: When an Assignment has not finished processing and you are assigning multiple curricula, you can see which curricula have been processed and assigned by looking directly at a user’s transcript history. As the curriculum is assigned to each user, the transcript history for that user is updated.
