Sensei Email Notifications

Sensei Emails ↑ Back to top

From v1.6, 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
Note: 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.
