Email Notifications

Sensei Emails

An email is sent to Learners when:

  • Their quiz is graded, manually or automatically
  • They complete a course

An email is sent to Teachers (author of the course) when:

  • A learner completes their course
  • A learner starts their course
  • A learner submits a quiz for manual grading

Emails are sent to the course author, not the site admin. If you’re not receiving emails, ensure that you are author of the course in question.

Email Settings

Go to Sensei > Settings > Email Notifications to view email settings.

Select which email notifications are sent:

If you need to enable/disable notifications by specific courses, there is an option in the ‘Edit Course’ screen to disable notifications for each individual course.

You can customize the name, email address and footer text used in the emails:

email-settings2

And change the colors used in emails:

email-colours

Customizing Email Templates

By default, an email looks like this:

email-sample

If you want to customize emails beyond changing the colors as described above, you can override email template files as explained in Sensei Theming.

Follow-Up Emails

You can use the Follow-Ups extension to send scheduled emails to Learners after completing certain actions in Sensei, e.g., Starting a course, completing a course, etc.

See: Keep Students Coming Back with Follow-Up Emails.

Purchase the extension at Follow-Ups and learn more via its documentation.
