1. Scenario Overview

If you’re creating a course with multiple levels like DIY, Community, and VIP or Bronze, Silver, and Gold. You can use a Stage-Released Course and tags to create your course levels. Remember tags control access and as long as a user has a tag they are able to see the content. When a user does not have a tag this content is hidden from view.

2. What this looks like – frontend view

The image below is an example of what this looks like for a user that is at the highest level of your course. They have access to all three levels within your course. If a user purchases Level 1 they’ll see level 2 and level 3 as greyed-out icons. If they purchase Level 2 they’ll see Level 3 as a grey-out icon.
