Is there a way to have students enrolled in course with different access dates?

We are working on setting up On-Demand certificate courses where once the student pays, they have access to a course for so many days.  I'm having trouble finding a way to have a course in a term that doesn't have any dates assigned to it, but when a student's payment goes through, give them immediate access from that day and then end their access say 30 days out.

It seems that you can only set it for ALL students not individually?

 @kona ‌ Thanks Kona - not something we want to do but maybe if we can automate it, I guess we could.  Thank you very much!

With some back-end programming you probably could (granted I'm way beyond my area of expertise with that statement!). If you're interested in that type of back-end programming help I would recommend posting something in the https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/canvas-developers?sr=search&searchId=84ea6ffd-6f7b-4731-9841-...‌ group to see if they can help.

Hello there, 82711010bc61080b507960f9af47f13a496158f1cf91ab1f83b37b2a63af3fe2...

I thought that I would check in with you because I noticed that there hasn't been any new activity in this particular discussion topic since  @kona ‌' last reply on November 2, 2017.  Have you come up with a solution to your question?  If so, would you be willing to share that back here with the rest of the Canvas Community?  Or, if you are still looking for some assistance from Community members, please let us know that as well.  Since there hasn't been any new activity in this thread for well over four months, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered", but that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic.  I hope that's alright with you.  Looking forward to hearing back from you, Suzy.

Hey Chris – we haven’t attempted this automation yet to see if it will work for us. I know we are also looking into Canvas Catalog. So unfortunately we don’t have a definite answer but I’m fine with closing this out now.

Thank you,
