Course expiration

You can now set an expiration which will take effect either on a specific date or x number of months after the user completes a course.

If a user has purchased and completed the course, once the specific date is met or the # of months after completion has elapsed the user will see this message on the My Files page:

After re-purchase of the same item, the user will see the message below on the My Files page:

Once the user clicks the “Click here to take this course again” link the prior completion information will be archived. The user will then see a link to view past completion history.

Clicking the link will allow the user to view prior course completions and access prior Certificates of Completion.
