Sana’s new staggered assignments in programs gives learners access to the right content at the right time, without overwhelming them with one-time notification bombs. This saves time for admins too! Instead of manually assigning content with the right time intervals, you can now set up an automated schedule to do it for you.
What are staggered assignments?
Each step in programs can now be assigned to learners with a pre-defined delay relative to previous steps.
Each step can also have its own specified due date.
Every time program steps are modified, a new version is created. Learners enrolled into the program can be upgraded to the latest version.
How to stagger content assignment and set due dates
While adding content to your program you are presented with options to assign that content
Under the Assign column you can either assign the step Immediately or After delay:
If it’s the 1st step in the program, learners are assigned once they have been enrolled to the program
If its the 2nd step or later, that step is assigned at the same time as the previous step
If it’s the 1st step in the program, learners are assigned X days after they have been enrolled to the program
If its the 2nd step or later, that step is assigned X days after the previous step
Under the Due date column you can set the following due dates for the content step:
No due date - there is no time limit on learners have to complete this step
Relative to assignment - due date is X days after it is assigned
Specific date - choose a specific date the step is due by
See the video demonstration below showing you how to stagger assignments and add due dates relative to those assignment dates:
