Add Departments to Organize Users within Locations
6/17/2015
All Latitude Learning LMS users are inherently grouped by basic profile assignments such as Role, Position and Organization unit (i.e. Company, Business Unit, Division, Location). However, our LMS provides portal administrators the option to further organize users into functional groups by creating a Department unit or ad-hoc User Group . These user categories can then be leveraged to configure unique lists of employees for the purposes of mass enrollment, ad-hoc announcements, activity reporting, and more.
 
This document provides step-by-step instructions on how to create a Department and manage user membership. It will also explain the main drivers and key functionality of this LMS feature, which may ease many of your daily administrative processes.   [Read More...]

Restrict Resource Visibility to Authorized Users Only
6/15/2015

 

If you have a document or media file that you want a subset of employees to review, but you do not want all of your users to be able to access, it is possible to create a “hidden” resource within the LMS. Adding a Resource with an end date in the past renders the record inactive, making it unsearchable and inaccessible through the Resource Catalog options provided in the left navigation menu. Using the unique resource link (URL) as Self-Study course content, you can then create an approval-required course to ensure that only targeted learners with approved enrollment can access the resource material.   [Read More...]

Using LMS Data Pickers to Conduct Searches and Edit Records
6/4/2015
LMS data Pickers provide users a fluid way to search for various types of records and filter data for field entry selections. Pickers are designed to assist administrators in scoping their search to view records (e.g. the Search User process) and to provide only the valid options for field entries in Add/Edit forms (e.g. during the Add Course process, when you must Choose Organizations to add a course to catalogs within Business Units.)

Pickers are found throughout the LMS and function in similar ways, regardless of the type of search taking place or the purpose of the resulting selection. This document will refer to a few of the more common data pickers as examples.
