I'm looking to setup continuing courses, rather than have

I’m looking to setup continuing courses, rather than have my training material in a traditional format.

I’m trying to set up a course, at least to see how the plugin functions. I’m running into trouble regarding a start date.

Why am I required to set a start date? I was hoping I could have people go through at any time – virtual course as such – like I believe I can in LearnDash?

Is there a way around this – or am I missing something?

Thanks

Corey
