10-130 Reset course


Data can be reset in all course types. This affects the following data which will be either reset or cancelled:

  • Progress (learning path)
  • Number of attempts
  • Test runs
  • Points and success status
  • Release assessment
  • Reminders

The function can be applied either to all or selected participants and to all or only selected modules. Visible assessments are still saved as a version in the participant's success record. The course data is made available for download as a ZIP file afterwards. Tests are cancelled but can be restored. These restored tests are then valid for the current version.
