I'm very new to Canvas Catalog, and we're about to release our first paid program.  The program comprises 2 courses. Each of the courses has a Listing SKU, but the Program Listing does not have a Listing SKU field available. Is this for a reason, and...

Hi! Can you share more about how to resend email notifications from Catalog from inside of Canvas (i.e., confirmation, registration, etc.)? Do you know if there are instructions anywhere? Thanks!

@karen_bowden So to confirm, this is just to be able to move from one course to another in Canvas and the completions in Catalog are separate? Right?

@karen_bowden It would be in the analytics tab under enrollments then if there is a certificate to download that means the course is completed.

I can only see enrollments from the catalog side. Maybe someone else knows how to find out if a user completed a course.

@karen_bowden So, what you are saying it is just a usability standpoint to have a student move from one course to another but the data is still in Catalog about whether or not a student completes a course, right?

Please see the update posted above in the original post. Sadly, the button only works after they click Begin Course in the catalog.

It's all just html and css so you need to understand how a webpage is built to create a custom certificate. I thought there was some sample code pasted somewhere in here in the community. Start with that and then tweak it as you would like.  I found ...

@karen_bowden Interesting so what is the impact on the program in Catalog for the analytics? Does it show completions and send a certificate of completion? How is your program set up in Catalog? Would you be able to send a picture?

I place it on the last page of each course in Canvas. That way they just have to click it to open the next one. The catalog only contains listings of courses.

With an existing self-register, self-paced course can you add a section of a large cohort to an existing course. If so is there a guide on how to set this up, and do you need to provide a private code for registrations?
