Overview

The Drip Lessons by LearnDash Group module is part of the Pro Suite of modules for the Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit. Out of the box, LearnDash supports releasing access to LearnDash lessons a certain number of days after enrolment or on a specific calendar date—but that date applies to all users. This module extends drip dates by allowing them to be set by LearnDash Group. This allows you to have different groups progress through a course at different times and still manage their access with dates appropriate for the group.

Usage

As shown in the screenshot below, this module adds a LearnDash Group drop-down list to the Edit page of lessons. By selecting a group here and then a calendar date in the field below it, everyone in the associated group is assigned a drip date. The All Other Users entry covers everyone that isn’t in a group or doesn’t have a group date selected.

After choosing a group and date in month, enter the day (DD) and year (YYYY) and optionally the hour (HH) and (MM) you would like and then Update the lesson post. The date and time will then be populated in the drop-down list for that group. if you select a date, but not a time, the default time for release of the course will be 12:00 a.m. on the date you specify.

To remove a drip date for a group, choose the group and leave the Make Lesson visible on specific date field blank. Update the post and the group drip date will be reset.

Important:

  • Please note that the LearnDash Notifications plugin will not work with group drip dates.

    Have you ever thought of making this available on the front end for group leaders? So if you sell courses to schools, the teachers in that school can control the drip feed of lessons according to their own needs?

    Hi there

    When adding group dates for a second group I always get a HTTP 500 error and the date is not added. Could you look into it. I’m working with wordpress version 4.9.6 and learndash version 2.5.8 and the PRO toolkit.

      Any support tickets for individual sites must come through our ticket system or support@uncannyowl.com. Check that your PHP version meets the requirements (5.6 or higher) and check the errors logs; most 500 errors will add an entry to the web server error log. For further investigation though we unfortunately must go through our ticketing system.
