Turn off/avoid course completion email notification after adding a requirement to an existing course?

We have some courses that previously hadn't been set up with requirements, so the student's enrollments don't show as completed in the catalog analytics. We want to update the course so it has a requirement and will accurately reflect when students complete it, but when we make that update, we don't want a course completion notification email to be sent to the past students and cause confusion. Is there any way to avoid those messages being sent out to existing enrolled students?

Our worst case idea is to replicate the courses as new courses with requirements and then leave these as legacy courses that we no longer use. I'm hoping there is a better option!

The only way I know is the second worse case option because if you did not set up requirements then students will not get a certificate of completion and the student's analytics will not be accurate. This happened a couple of times to us. So, we remind those staff members that if they want to provide a certificate of completion they need to have requirements.

That's what I was afraid of - I am newer than others at my org to Canvas so I was hoping I just hadn't discovered another option. We'll buckle down, get it done, and learn from this. Thanks!
