Adaptive Release

When adding an adaptive release rule to a course with groups an additional release criteria is being added.

After applying the adaptive release criteria, click on the item’s context menu followed by “Adaptive Release Advanced”. Remove the membership criteria from the list and save.


Adaptive Release When using the Mobile App marking an item of content as 'Reviewed' does not work. This functionality works in a mobile browser, we recommend using the mobile browser when marking an item as reviewed. This is intended behaviour in the Mobile App.
