Disable the View Course Button when Course is not yet open on the Dashboard


A View Course button is appearing on the Course Dashboard for courses that have not yet started (i.e. a future course start date). I have tested with a learner account. I can’t seem to find a setting in the Advanced Settings that would allow the button to be disabled. Is there a way to disable until start date for all courses.

Many thanks


@aneesha How did you set the start date? If you set a date in the future in Studio > Settings > Schedule & Details > Course Start Date, the button to access the course should only appear in the students dashboard from that date.

Cf the official documentation (Ironwood).

I have setup an example for that course:


You can register a new account to confirm, and see the configuration in Studio with the staff account: staff@example.com / edx.
