In this Catalog release, admins can use default templates for course or program listings and specify how often a promotion code can be used. Restricting future courses in Canvas applies to students in Catalog, and admins can also create and update programs using the API.
Canvas Catalog is an all-in-one learning solution that integrates with the Canvas LMS as a course registration system, payment gateway, and learning platform. Learn more about Canvas Catalog.
When instructors or admins restrict students from viewing a course before the course start date, this setting affects Catalog notifications and course display.
Instructors and admins can restrict students from viewing future courses by opening the Settings in a course and selecting the Users can only participate in the course between these dates checkbox and the Restrict students from viewing course before start date checkbox.
When these options are selected, any users who enroll in the course can view the begin date for the course in the enrollment email. However, the course does not appear in the Catalog Dashboard until the course start date.
