How To Test Learncycles

Before you create New Learncycles for your lists that contain live Course Offers and Learners, we suggest that you do some testing with dummy Course Offers and Learners.

Create a Learncycle and add activities
  • Choose your required Trigger Conditions and ensure that it has an Audience of the Test List as this will ensure that the Learncycle will work in the isolated environment
  • Add the required activities against the Learncycle

How to Add Learncycles


  1. Test and check that each Learncycle and Activity fires as expected
    • NOTE: If you have Learncycles scheduled for the future, you may not be able to test this all in one day. However, you can set the Learncycles to send sooner by ensuring that your test enrolments have dates that align with your test Learncycles
  2. Update your test data as required and keep testing until the Learncycles are outputting the expected results

TIP: You can open multiple Learncycles in different tabs to allow you to work on them at the same time by simply clicking on the ‘external-link’ icon.

Warning, please note:
  • When you use the trigger condition – Course Enrolment is Created, changing enrolment statuses back and forth will trigger the same Learncycle multiple times
  • Similarly if dates are changed, then a scheduled Learncycle will be triggered each time the trigger conditions are met. For eg: Changing Course enrolment start date multiple times.
