Help Guide needed for publishing updates to courses

Idea created by Kate Coskrey on Jan 10, 2020

    Can a help guide be created that can address how to correctly publish a course for users in flight?  I published a course for an update that I made while users were taking the course, and they received a message that said "Sorry, your admin has removed access to this course. No need to worry."  Well, there isn't a help guide on how to correctly publish so access isn't interrupted.  I have taken the training on course publication and watched videos and there isn't anything that covered this that I could find (if there are, they are embedded in existing content that would be hard to find by a high level keyword search).  I am still stuck at the moment and learners are road blocked at the moment.
