Allow admins to set up default student enrolment state

When adding students to a class roster, the system set their enrolment state to Enrolled by default. However, in some cases there may be tentative enrolment and while the admin would like to have these people in the class roster, there is no point having them enrolled until they either confirm or show up to class. At either point the admin or even the trainer should be able to change their status to Enrolled. At the moment, admin has to update each user post choosing to add it to the roster from Enrolled to Requested (for example).

it will be nice to be able to set up a default at class or even course level for the state in which users are added to the roster.

Who would most benefit from this idea? LMS Administrators or LMS Learners
What is the problem you are trying to solve?

Enrolled status is set from the point the class starts and Skillable charges for each enrolled student. The charge makes perfect sense, but I have quite a few cases where people are enrolled but then do not show up. Especially when the customer pays a class rate and not per seat. It proved much more useful to set up all roster students as Requested and enrol only students as they join the class

    Hello Eric,

    Thank you for reviewing and the response. My suggestion came out of my expirience with adding students to a class using the roster.

    The classes I refer to are trainer led. Your option 2 below is how I add students to a class. So, first I go to the class page, then open the roster and choose add students.

    All chosen students are then added to the class roster with an Enrolled status. Once they are added, I need to change the status of each student to requested if that's the one I want to set for the student.

    Not sure about adding students from an event (no idea how this works) and I pre-add the students as users so never used the create student option.

    Due to the way we work with our customers attending classes, I am not using the option of Create Enrollment Page. Therefore, I cannot comment on this process.

    Thank you

    Thank you for submitting this idea. Would you be able to outline your steps for creating these enrollments as there are different defaults depending on the status/context of where you initiate the enrollment?


    1. Creating an enrollment without selecting the Class defaults to Enrollment Status = Requested

      1. /ClassEnrollment/Create (Create Enrollment Page)

    2. Add Student via the Roster on existing class defaults to Enrollment Status = Enrolled

    3. Select Class

    4. Select Roster

    5. Add Student

    In summary if you could outline the steps in how you create the enrollment would be appreciated to better understand the result you are seeing.
