Course activation: Participant management

To get to the participant management of a course activation, choose Course management → Course activation → participant icon (in the line of the favored course activation).


In this view you see the statistics of the selected course activation. All users with the registration status Registered are considered.

Add user

Add an user to the course. You have four options:

  1. Register users as participants and set to “mandatory”
  2. Register users as participants and set to “optional”
  3. Display the course activation in the user’s catalogue and set “mandatory”
  4. Display the course activation in the user’s catalogue and set “optional”

In the overview below you see now Registered in the column  Registration status.

Furthermore you see in the last column, who has approved the participation of an user to a course.

  • Authors can register users to a run, even if the registration deadline is reached.
  • Authors can deregister users from a run, even if the user was registered to a run and the event date is in the past.

To register users to a run, choose the context menu in the column “Information regarding the run” and select the appropriate entry. If users couldn’t be registered to the run, a message in the column “Run with warning” appears.

If you click on the table entry in the column “Information regarding the run”, you get an overview of the event dates of the appropriate run. If you click on the table entry in the column “Run with warning”, the Event manager opens.

Remove user

A dialog window, in which are all participants listed, opens. By setting a check box you select a participant and you can remove him/her. In the overview below you see now Removed in the column Registration status.


You can only remove manually created users via the button Remove user. If you have added an user via a rule on participants, you have to change in the column “Registration method” from “Rule regarding participants” to “Manual” by clicking and then you can remove the user.

Send message

You get automatically to the next tab Notifications. First select the recipients of your notification:

The number in parentheses shows how many participants are concerned.

Then you can create your message (notification) and you select if this should be sent by Community or via e-mail. By clicking Publish you send the notification.

Advanced import

Select first, if you want the registration status Catalogue or Participant.

If you select the registration status Catalogue, select Option 3 (Display the course activation in the user’s catalogue and set “mandatory.) or Option 4 (Display the course activation in the user’s catalogue and set “optional”), this depends on which editing mode (optional or mandatory) the course activation has. If you select the registration status Participant, select Option 1 (Register users as participants and set “mandatory”) or Option 2 (Register users as participants and set “optional”), this depends on which editing mode (optional or mandatory) the course activation has.

You can add participants via the e-mail-address, the first and last name or the login. Enter the appropriate data in the entry field of the appropriate method (e-mail, first and last name, login). Notes, how to enter the data you find directly beneath the entry field. Afterwards you click on the button Recognize participant data. Then you get a list with all users, which are found regarding your entered data. The check boxes before all names are automatically set. If you don’t want to add a participant anymore, just deselect the check box.

Via click on the button Add you add all selected users as participants to this course activation (registration status: Registered/edit mode: Optional).

Import participants from course activation

If you want to add the participants of a course activation to another course activation, you can choose this function. Thus you avoid a new user import.

Quick registration

The quick registration is a real-time search. Once you enter characters of the first name, last name or login name, you get all users, which contain these characters, displayed.

Skip element

If you click on the status icon of the respective user, the dialog window “Learning results” opens. If you select the learning object, which should be skipped, you can set a check box at “Skip element”. Now Avendoo® skips this learning object in the learning path. The skipped learning object doesn’t turn green on the learning path, because it wasn’t processed or visited. The positioning indiciator turns to the next learning object on the learning path, which can be processed by now.

You see all participants listed for status, first name, last name, OU, registration status and edit mode in the table (in the default view).

Runs help you to structure the participant management of your course activations. You define a start date, to which time obstacles of learning path refer. Further you define the maximum number of participants, the status, price and costs. When the appropriate course activation contains events, you get them displayed.

If you have selected the event dates of the runs, you get the event dates displayed as event date group and do not get is displayed as single event dates.

If runs contain event dates with status “Being Planned”, the registration is not allowed.

At the summary after the registration of a run (on which event dates the participant is registered) the event dates are sorted by start date and the event title is shown in the appropriate language. Further you see an alternative event date if there are deregistered participants.

If an author deregister a participant from a course activation or set him to catalogue, Avendoo® deregister the participant from the run.

  • If you plan several event dates in a course activation, choose runs. Via the runs you can select from each event, which you plan with a certain group of participants, an event date. If you create several runs, you can add several groups of participants to several event dates.

At the user selection you get also users, who are not registered to the course activation, listed. Avendoo® registers participants automatically to all event dates of the selected run and the course activation, if the participants were registered by an author to a run.

If an author creates, changes or deletes an event date, Avendoo® controls, if this event date is assigned to one or more runs and sends a change message if applicable.
