Here's how you can use the 'Evergreen repeating' drip template, from Thrive Apprentice.
This template comes in handy of you want to unlock course content at consistent intervals, such as one lesson or module per week.
Each student has their own unlock timeline depending on the trigger you define (when the user purchases the product, or starts the course):
Create the Drip Campaign
After you set up your course structure, you'll be able to create your campaign directly form the "Drip" tab of your main course overview:
Click on "Create first Drip Campaign" and proceed with choosing the "Evergreen repeating" one:
Setting Up the Campaign
You'll be taken to this lightbox, where you can start setting up the template. Start by giving it a name:
Select an event that will trigger it. Browse the available options and select the one that best suits your needs. You can start unlocking content when the users start the course or when they purchase the product:
For this campaign template, the content is set by default to be unlocked systematically:
If you pick a different trigger or unlock content option, then your campaign template will change from the currently selected one to another template. This is due to the fact that each campaign template has a particular event that triggers it and a particular type of unlocking content condition.
Then, if you expand the "Advanced settings" section, you'll have these two toggles:
Force users to complete course in order
With this toggle active, you'll be able to force all students to complete the course content in order:
The lessons will still be unlocked based on the conditions you set in your drip campaign, but the students will be forced to complete the course content lesson by lesson, gradually.
So they'll start with the first lesson, complete it, then proceed to the second one, complete that one as well and so on.
Show locked content in lesson lists
This refers to the lesson list that shows up on the left side of any lesson.
If this toggle is active, the students can view the title of the upcoming lessons or modules that will be unlocked for them. If you deactivate it, those locked modules or lessons will be hidden from the lesson list.
After you create your campaign, the course structure will look like this:
You get to see here when each lesson will be unlocked, based on how you've set it up in the campaign template.
Applying the Drip Schedule
After you are finished setting up the campaign, there's still one important step that you need to do, in order to make sure your drip campaign is working.
Access the "Drip" tab of your Products dashboard:
Make sure you apply the drip schedule that you've just created to your product:
