Sometimes users might be interested in attending an instructor-led training event, but none of the available sessions suit their timetable. In that case, they might want to request for an extra session, scheduled on a more convenient time or in a different location.
To enable users to ask for new sessions to be added to a training event as a course owner, go to the blended course's "Advanced settings" and check the "Show request session button" (1) option.
Now users, visiting the blended course in their Catalog, can click on "Select Sessions" (3) and then on the "Can't find a convenient session to attend? Click here request another!" link (2) to ask for a new session.
Then, they can add their preferences in the "Comments" field and click on "Submit" to confirm and send their request.
NOTE: This option is only available to users that have not yet enrolled in the particular blended course, when they go to the course's page from the "Course catalog" and click on "Select Sessions" (3).
After the request is submitted, an alert (4) and an email notification (if the respective option is enabled) are sent to you, the course's owner (whether a course creator, administrator or instructor).
To see the user's submitted preferences for the requested session, simply click on the alert's title (5).
Then, click on the "View event's sessions" (6) button to be redirected to the training event's page. There, if attainable, you can add a new session according to the learner's request.
