What this feature is

Great News: you can now start an Experience based on a certain date and time.

You already have lots of options to trigger Experiences based on things happening in your course — points, tags, actions, activity...

But sometimes, you just want to be able to set things to start at one particular moment in time, independently of everything else that's happening in your course.

This is will be particularly useful to those who are running LIVE courses where things need to happen at specific moments during the course.

  • time sensitive course announcements
  • limited time opportunities
  • A Broadcast Style course announcement that you want to schedule in advance
  • etc.
