The runtime starts for the assigned users when the learning path is published. An automated notification email will be sent informing about the start and duration of the runtime. One week before the end of the runtime, as well as at the end of the runtime, users will receive a reminder email. After that, the learning path is still visible in the users' dashboard.
The duration is not deadline-related, so users can also be added later who receive the same duration to edit the learning path. By means of a mandatory course, also key-date related runtimes can be set.
Currently, the durations of already assigned users cannot be adjusted.
The duration (e.g. 90 days) always applies from the date of assignment. Regardless of whether someone is assigned the learning path in month X or Y, the 90-day term applies to both.
If you adjust the due date in the mandatory learning path when adding new learners, the original due date will still apply to the learners who have already started. The adjusted due date then applies to the newly added learners.
