    Hey there,
    I wanted to find out if there’s an option to create bigger course’s hierarchy so I could create for example 2 courses in 1 or add more topics in 1 course? I mean smth like sections that include other sections? Is it possible?

    And one more question is that I need to create a course when for example someone can register and get free(paid) test access to some course’s modules and the other modules and lessons will be visible for him but access would be denied until he buys for example monthly membership.
    I’m not sure if I can do that so can you tell me please if I can and if yes then how can I realize this option?

    I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

    Not currently possible. I’m seeing more and more requests for this and there’s a feature request pending you could vote on if you would find this useful: https://trello.com/c/6Kzx5gFu/172-the-ability-to-create-subsections-in-a-course

    You could, today, break your course into multiple courses and then string those course together using course prerequisites and tracks. It’s not *exactly* what you’re looking for but it is possible today.

    I like to be frank about feature requests: feature requests that have 40+ votes are still not prioritized for development. I move slowly (I’m sorry…) and this one may not exist for another 6 months or more, potentially.

    And one more question is that I need to create a course when for example someone can register and get free(paid) test access to some course’s modules and the other modules and lessons will be visible for him but access would be denied until he buys for example monthly membership.

    Parts of courses cannot be made available via a membership. However, I think you should consider using tracks. You could create a membership that provides members-only access to a few of the courses in your track but the first few courses (or the first course) could be available to anyone (non members).

    hope that helps,

    and then string those course together using course prerequisites and tracks.

    Is there some guide or smth on how to use prerequisites and tracks and what is it? 🙂 Actually I breaked my course into multiple courses but I don’t know what do you mean prerequisites and tracks is?

    So did I understand correctly that there’s no way for paid members with test access have access to some lessons and modules and see other modules that they have not access to until they buy monthly membership for example but still I can create one course for members with test access and different course for monthly members?

    It is *NOT POSSIBLE* to make an access plan which will only provide access to *PART* of a course. You cannot do this. You are understanding me correctly.

    Take a look at docs on tracks: https://lifterlms.com/docs/what-is-a-course-track/

    A prerequisite can be set for any course under the “Restrictions” area of a course. This allows you to ensure that a student completes, for example, Course A before they can start in on Course B.

    So if you create a track with 4 courses, you can ensure they’re completed in the correct order.

    You can use a membership to define the last 2 courses as “bonus” courses available only to your members.

    The first two courses could be made open to anyone who wishes to enroll and purchase.

    Does that help?

    Yep, that helps. Thank you!
    One more question…
    Is there an option so I could track time when members for example open course or lesson first time so I could track when and if someone opened and watched my lessons?

    Not currently possible. Sorry.

    I’d like to add a layer of video / audio analytics / tracking to LifterLMS at some point, I’ve actually started on the project but it’s a nice to have given our roadmap at the moment so abandoned and will return to it later.

    Sorry

    Okay. Thanks so much for your help!
