How to Add a Basic Adaptive Release Rule

With basic adaptive release rules, you can add and edit one rule for a single piece of content. This single rule may have multiple criteria. For example, a rule can require a student to meet both date and review status criteria before the content is available. You can use advanced adaptive release rules to add multiple rules to a single piece of content.

1. Access an item's the contextual menu and click Adaptive Release.
2. On the Adaptive Release page, complete one or more sections of the Adaptive Release page, such as date and membership.
3. Click Submit.
 
How to Add an Advanced Adaptive Release Rule

With advanced adaptive release, you can add multiple rules to a single content item. If you create multiple rules, the content is visible to a user if any of the rules are met. Each rule may have multiple criteria. For example, one rule allows users in Group A with a score above an 85 on a test to view the content item. Another rule for the same item allows users in Group B to view the same content item only after a specific date.

Rules that cannot be satisfied by any user will be noted because they will not provide any access to the specified content item.

1. Access an item's contextual menu and click Adaptive Release: Advanced.
2. On the Adaptive Release: Advanced page, click Create Rule on the action bar.
3. On the Add Rule page, type a name for the rule and click Submit.
4. Point to Create Criteria and select date, grade, or membership, and provide the criteria. Click Submit.
5. On the action bar, click Review Status to add it to the advanced adaptive release rule. Browse and select the content item to be reviewed before the content is released.
6. Repeat Steps 6 and 7 to add multiple criteria to an item.
 
Edit or Delete an Adaptive Release Rule

To edit the criteria or delete a basic rule, access the item’s contextual menu and click Adaptive Release.

For advanced rules, you manage the name and criteria of a rule separately:

1. Access an item's contextual menu and click Adaptive Release: Advanced.
2. On the Adaptive Release: Advanced page, access a rule's contextual menu:
    Click Manage to edit the rule's name.
    -OR-
    Click Edit Criteria to add, edit, or delete criteria.
    -OR-
    Click Delete to delete both advanced and basic adaptive release rules.
 
How to Copy an Adaptive Release Rule

You can copy an existing adaptive release rule rather than creating a new one. After you copy the rule, you can change the name and edit the rule. You can only copy rules within a single content item. A rule from one content item may not be copied to another content item.

1. Access an item's contextual menu and click Adaptive Release: Advanced.
2. On the Adaptive Release: Advanced page, access a rule's contextual menu and click Copy.
3. An exact replica of the rule appears at the bottom of the list. It has the same name as the original rule starting with "Copy of."
4. In the copied rule's contextual menu, click Edit Criteria to make changes to the name or criteria.
