Users who have missed a deadline (
deadline_missed), can still access and complete the learning plan.
When learning plan becomes accessible, the user has [#] days to complete
Upon the user clicking "Start" on the learning plan, the user has [#] days to complete
Both of these settings are user-specific, which means the deadline is determined based on when the user is assigned/started the learning plan, rather than a specifically selected deadline date. Assigning users to a learning plan using one of these settings guarantees that the user’s deadline will be a date in the future.
