How do Reminder Emails work?

Your Kantola Training account is able to send Reminder emails to Learners who have not completed their assigned training.

These emails can be sent on-demand, and can be set to automatically send on pre-set intervals.


In order to utilize the Reminder Email feature, you first need to:

  1. Users are Active and Assigned training
  2. Users must first be Approved and sent their "Notification Email" before Reminder emails will send.  You can see if a user has been Approved/Notified via the Status Column on your Users tab.mceclip3.png
  3. Assigned course(s) must have a Due Date:  You can see due dates for individuals by using the Course Assignment button via the Users Tabmceclip1.png.  Due dates can be set individually via the same Course Assignment Page or in bulk via Groups.  Please see our Groups: Overview page for information on updating a group to include due dates.
  4. Under Company Settings > Email Settings, "Send Reminders to:" must NOT be set to "None"
