Is there a way to unpublish a course?
There is not a way to unpublish a course. There are a couple of workarounds, though, depending on what you need. First, just publishing doesn't make it visible unless it's in a category that is published to the Learning Library. I accidentally did this about a week ago. I quickly removed the course from the category and it disappeared from the Learning Library.
If there are enrollments it's more tricky. You would need to delete the enrollments. I would recommend downloading the enrollments so you have a copy of what the current state of the course was when it was published. You can then actually use that same file to delete the enrollments via CSV. Once you're done with your edits, you can then re-enroll via CSV using that same enrollment file and it should re-instate everyone in whatever their current state was when you accidentally published. This won't re-enroll the completed learners though. You would then need to do that manually if needed. Or make one more tiny change and then when you publish, just re-enroll them that way (you can even just remove a period and add it back or something like that and Bridge will give the publish prompt again. - Hopefully that makes sense).
Another option is to download the course as a .json package and then upload as an entirely new course. You can then delete or archive the old version. Just be careful with archiving. I recently realized that courses set as "Required" for all learners that are archived will be automatically assigned to new employees even though they can't view the content in an archived course. You will need to change the relevance first. Anyway, the screenshot below shows where to export. If it's a native Bridge course, you just open it and look at the menu and you'll have an export option.
If these options don't work, let me know your exact scenario and I'll try again!
Perfect! Thank you so much! I really appreciate the prompt response. Again, thank you for your time! I hope you have a great week.
