Open Edx Search: Show courses that have already started

Hi everyone:

By default, my “Explore courses” section only shows courses that are about to start.

What do i need to change/edit so all my courses show?

Do i need to change the ELASTIC_FIELD_MAPPINGS?

I want to give the learners the option to start a course whenever they want, but if they cant find those courses in the “explore courses” section its impossible.

Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

@Xperez You’ll need to edit your courses’ Schedules to make the available for enrollment. In Studio, go to Settings > Schedule & Details:

Course schedule menu

From there, you have two choices. You can adjust the course start date to be prior to today/now, and remove the end dates. For more info, see:

Alternatively, you can change your course to be self-paced, which sounds like what you’re describing here. You can only change the course pacing before the course start date, so if that has already passed, you’ll need to back-date it, save, and then you can change the pacing. More info on course pacing:
