Self enrolments and the To-do block

Overview

The 'To Do' block can be used to provide a summary (training plan) of courses that a user is enrolled.

The block can be configured to show a number of details for each course entry (status, duration, due date etc.). Alternately, the block can be used to show a catalogue of courses which can be grouped by either course category or using tags.

 

Setting up the To-do block

1. Turn on editing for the page you want to add the To Do block

2. Under the "Add a block" dropdown, select "To-do"

3. Drag the new instance of the To-do block to the location you would like it to sit in

4. Configure the To-do block by clicking on the cog icon in the block.
