Making a Bulk Purchase
Upon activating the Group Registration plugin, a user has the option to purchase multiple courses during a single checkout.
To make a purchase on behalf of a group, the user needs to check the ‘Enable Group Registration‘ option. Once the user checks this option and makes a bulk purchase, a group is automatically created, and the user is set as the Group Leader.
If the user does not check the ‘Enable Group Registration’ option, then a group is not created, and the user is enrolled for the course purchased.
With Easy Digital Downloads
Adding & Managing Students
Students can be registered for the purchased course using the ‘Group Registration’ page. The plugin automatically creates a ‘Group Registration’ page, using which Group Leaders can add and manage students.
Please note: If this page is not created, you can create a new page and the shortcode [wdm_group_users] to create the Group Registration page.
A Group Leader has to enter the student’s name and email id to enroll a student for a course. If a WordPress user does not exist for the student, a new user in created and the student is registered for the course. If the user exists, he/she is automatically enrolled for the course.
Bulk Enroll Option
Group Leaders can upload a CSV file to enroll members to the group. The format for the CSV file needs to be: First Name, Last Name, Email id.
A sample CSV file can be downloaded from the group registration page.
The Group Leader also has the option to view and manage students added to a group for a particular course. Upon selecting the course from the ‘Select Product’ option, the list of enrolled students is displayed.
A ‘Remove’ action is available in case the Group Leader wants to unregister a student. However, clicking on the ‘Remove’ action only sends a remove request to the Admin, and does not remove the student directly.
Once the Admin approves the ‘Remove’ request, the student is removed from the group and unenrolled from the course. The user however is not deleted from your WordPress website.
Course Progress Reports
Group Leaders can view course progress reports of group members using the LearnDash Pro Panel add-on.
Under every group LearnDash -> Groups -> <Group Name>, the Admin has the option to add and remove students or Group Leaders to the Group, and accept/reject ‘Remove’ requests sent by the Group Leader.
User Removal Request
The Admin can Accept or Reject a request sent by the Group Leaders to remove a user from the group.
