Approval procedure (event)

If a course contains one or more events, you can define a separate approval procedure for the participants of the event in the Course activation wizard. Now we show you step by step the effects of the approval procedure on participants and team leader.

Note: You need an author and a user-team leader, who approves, for the approval procedure. If you process until now with no team leader, you get the information under new user, how to create the team leader and how to do the necessary configurations.


1. Create course with an event

An author creates a new course (Learning content → Courses → New courseCourse contents), which contains an event.

2. Activate approval procedure

The author activates the approval procedure for event participants or the approval procedure for the course activation by activating these options in the Registration management in the Course activation wizard on the tab Registration management.

  • Approval is deemed “approved”
    By this option the participant remains even without active approval on the participant list. If no one reacts and approves, the participant remains in the participant list of the event date. But it is possible to decline the approval active before the closing date of deregistration. Then the participant is deregistered. Thus it is a “veto permission”. You only need to be active on the rejection of the approval is an advantage. Otherwise a no reacting is an “approved”.

    If there is no registration deadline configured, this means registration deadline = start of the event date, then no mail will be send.

  • Approval is deemed “declined”
    The approval has to be done until the closing date of the event date, if you activated this option.

Without closing date it is the start date of the event date.

It doesn’t matter who does the registration, the approval has always to be done. Exception: Registration after the closing date by an author. In this case of correction the participant is approved at once on the activated approval procedure.
Without approval of if not approved the participant will be deregistered from the event date. Thus it is important, that the closing date is before the start date.

If a user- team leader with approval permissions registers, Avendoo® approves at once. Example: A superior (user- team leader) registers an employee (learner) directly. If a user- team leader without approval permissions registers there is no automatic approval. Then the approval has to be done or rejected by a user- team leader with appropriate permissions. Registrations, which are be done by an author at an event which has to be approved, are only automatically approved at the closing date.

3. Participant management

The author adds individual users to the course activation. Thus these users are registered to the course (Course management → Course activationuserSingle20Participant management). If you want to switch to the other approval options per user, click on the text in the column Approval procedure (Event).

The learners can register to the event, which is content of the course, once they have processed the learning path in an appropriate way. Only at this moment the approval procedure is active.

4. Registration to an event date

The learner has the event of the course on the learning path processed (1.) and registers to the event date (2.). If the event registration of the learner is via the REST interface, Avendoo® registers the learner additionally to the course activation.

It depends on which option you have selected in the Course activation wizard. You got different effects on the learner:

  • Approval is deemed “approved”:
    The learner is registered to the selected event date. Until the official closing date a team leader can cancel the registration of the learner and thus he/she rejects the event participation of the learner.
  • Approval is deemed “declined”:
    The participant is registered to the event date indeed, but his registration has to be approved by a team leader. This approval can be done until the official closing date of the event.

5. Team leader cockpit

The team leader receives a notification that there are pending approvals. He/she can approve or reject the participation of the learner in My Cockpit.


Self-managing team leaders don’t get approval requests, but if they have direct superiors. Then this one gets the approval request, who can approve the person. Via default the self-approval for team leaders is activated in the system property “teamleaderSelfApproval”. Further information you find here.

Approve participation

Via click on the button Approve participation the participation of the learner in the event date is approved. The learner receives a notification that the approval was successful.

Decline participation

Via click on the button Decline participation the participation of the learner in the event is rejected. His/her place will be released again. The learner receives a notification that the participation in the following event was not approved.

A cause for declining the participation in an event is for example that the learner is booked for another event date and he/she didn’t consider this. The team leader declines the request therefore for organizational cause.

Another cause for declining such a request is for example that the event should be available for all learners of the course, but the team leader wants to approve the participation to certain learners, depending on processing the courses. Especially on events with costs the team leader can allow the participation in the event those learners, who needs them most for completing the course.
