PLD's are excellent ways of sparking engagement in a course. It would be great to be able to fire a PLD Alert based on the start date of a course rather than just a User Action or a specific date in time. This could be very helpful for:
- Reminding students who may not have logged into the system,
- Sending a reminder to all students about key deadlines,
- Automatically unlocking access to certain activities at key points in the course's timeline.
- Performing various functions on a time level without having to set it each term.
I assume there are other institutions that have a templatized workflow. Setting Date events in PLD would be much easier if we could simply update the start date of a course and trust the PLD to fire when its supposed to. Currently, we have to set a specific date to create a trigger, or recurring trigger. This works on one-off events, but we would desire this for all 200 sections of our courses... having an event that fires on the start date +/- a number of days would allow us to set it up and import it into all of our courses with ease. Just a thought!
