Course Display is a category of Standard Settings, which is available from the Configuration () page in the VETenrol Admin.
Click the Standard Settings heading or associated text to open the page, then click the Course Display tab.
These settings generally affect the available courses on the main page and how they are displayed when selected.
There are three sections, each relating to the VETenrol main page:
- Programme Display
- Occurrence Display
- Occurrence Details (link opens the dedicated article for this topic)
And finally a section for an alternative page:
- Schedule (link opens the dedicated article for this topic)
The options for this section are:
- Categorise programmes by programme types
- Show all Programmes
- Show programme description
- Enquiries for inactive programmes
- Push enquiries to VETtrak Waiter
This feature sorts programmes into categories as per the Programme Type set for the programme in VETtrak. It is intended to improve the customer experience when there are large quantities of available programmes.
Show all Programmes
This setting toggles the display of courses without current occurrences. The primary function of this setting is to allow enquiries for those courses.
Show programme description
Toggle this option to show or hide the course description retrieved from VETtrak for users browsing courses.
In order for the description to be displayed when enabled, content must also have been entered into the Programme Description in VETtrak.
Enquiries for inactive programmes
Toggle this setting to display the enquiry form on courses without any current or future occurrences.
This setting requires Show all programmes to be enabled, additionally, there needs to be at least one old occurrence published (with a start and end date in the past) for the programme to be listed as an available course and subsequently show the enquiry or not.
Push enquiries to VETtrak Waiter
This option will send the details to Web Enrolments in VETtrak, under Waitlist. There the client details can be matched and then the record approved for the Waiter.
The options for this section are:
- Show all occurrences (inc. expired)
- Allow register after start date
- Show Enquire button for Occurrences
Show all Occurrences
Enable this option to display inactive/closed occurrences for valid programmes.
This will result in displaying every past occurrence that is still published for any programme that also has at least one occurrence published in the future with a start date falling within the time frame set by the Months to Show value.
This option can extend page load times significantly and should be used in combination with VETtrak’s Unpublish feature to manage occurrences.
Allow register after start date
Toggle this option to allow users to register after the close date of an occurrence.
For Allow register after start date to function as intended:
- Show all occurrences must be enabled.
- Show Close Dates must be disabled.
