• Adding and Editing Custom Categories

    To guide and support learning in your organization, you can create your own categories of courses to include courses from the entire Udemy Business collection along with internal courses your team has created. For example, onboarding courses for new employees, and courses you have imported from Udemy.com.

    To create your own categories, access the Manage tab and click on Manage Courses. On the left hand navigation bar, you’ll see a section under the title Custom Categories. Scroll down and click on the New Category link. Type in a category name and click the Create Category button.

    You can add courses to your new category by browsing the full collection of courses, searching for specific courses using the search fields, or by choosing courses from your list of Custom Courses or Imported Courses. You can then use the actions menu on the course page or course listing page, to add to one or more of your custom categories.

    At the moment, the option to hide a category from the course collection is not available. Please note that the custom categories feature is only available to Enterprise Plan users. Only admins or group admins can add and edit custom categories, or add and remove courses from them.

    Accessing Your Custom Categories

    Any custom categories that you create will be located in your own company collection, which you can access in the dropdown menu that appears under Explore. If your organization isn’t using the learning paths feature then they will be located in your own company collection at the top of the list of all Categories in the main navigation bar.

    You can also find your Custom Categories in the left sidebar menu under Manage > Manage Courses

    To delete a custom category or change its name, go to Manage > Manage Courses and click on the course category on the left hand navigation bar. On the top right of the screen, you’ll see an action menu with two options: Edit Name and Remove Custom Category.  Please note that if you want to delete a custom category, you will have to remove any courses from that category first.

  • How to Approve and Publish a Custom Course

    Udemy Business helps companies stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing workplace. In addition to thousands of Udemy’s top-rated courses across key business categories, you can also host and distribute your company’s proprietary resources through our easy-to-use course builder.

    Please note: This feature is available within Enterprise accounts only.

    Why do custom courses require approval?

    Custom courses can only be published by account administrators. If a user in your organization creates a custom course it will be submitted for admin review, and only after it’s approved, can it be published and accessed by others in your organization.

    When a user submits a custom course for approval, an email will be sent to all account admins to notify them about the request.

    How to approve and publish custom courses

    Admins can approve and publish a course that has been created internally by following the steps below:

    1. Login to your Udemy Business account and move your cursor to Manage at the top right of the page.
    2. On the dropdown menu, click on Manage Courses and select Custom Courses from the sidebar menu on the left of the page.
    3. Courses that require approval will be posted in this list with the status Pending Approval. If you wish to review the custom course, before approving it, click on the course title (see below).
    4. Click on the Approve button on the right of the course listing and this will publish the course and set the status to Live.
    5. If you do not wish to approve the course you can click on the Reject button on the right of the course listing.

    An email will be sent to the custom course creator to notify them once the course has been approved or rejected.
