Add Departments to Organize Users within Locations
6/17/2015 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

Restrict Resource Visibility to Authorized Users Only
6/15/2015 - Posted by Latitude

 

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.

Using LMS Data Pickers to Conduct Searches and Edit Records
6/4/2015 - Posted by Latitude Learning Team

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.
