There are several notifications that can be enabled in your academy. These do everything from welcoming the new user to notifying users or managers of completed coursework to announcing new content. These have all been previously managed only by the academy administrator.
Certain notifications previously seen only at the academy level are now available to training managers, instructors, and item creators at the course and learning path level. This allows those working directly with the course or learning path to control what notification are sent.
Your academy admin must first decide who will have access to these additional notifications. You can choose to leave it as is and only have the admin control notifications. Alternatively, you can choose to have Training Managers and/or creators manage them, as well.
To enable these notifications select the Training Admin Workspace. Under Settings on the left, select Control Panel.
Under both the Courses and Learning Path sections, you'll find Who can manage notifications for specific courses/learning path. Check the appropriate boxes.
Save when finished.
Those that have been given the ability can choose which notifications are active for their course or learning path.
Select the Training Admin Workspace. Under Notifications on the left, select Academy.
There you will see the available notifications. Select the arrow next to each to reveal its options.
Instructors and creators are able to enable/disable notifications on a course/learning path level, edit the notification, and adjust notification settings. However, they will not be able to adjust the recipient list, as creators and instructors do not have access to the full organizational structure.

The list of available options will expand over time. If you don't see a specific option, please let your representative or Schoox support know.
