Multiple User Profiles

Students in LatitudeLearning are typically set up with one profile. The one profile assigns:

  • Organization
  • Position code
  • Role
  • User's manager (only when person to person is set-up in the LMS)

If a user with one profile is given multiple positions but at a later date no longer need multiple positions, the extra position can be end-dated. This is all possible with one profile, since one profile can operate with multiple position codes, roles, and managers.

What if a user requires multiple organizational assignment? What if a technician works in two locations? What if a district manager primarily works in Chicago but oversees all the locations in the Midwest division? For these and similar scenarios, LatitudeLearning offers multiple user profile support.

Common uses of multiple profiles are described below:

  • A user works in more than one location and managers at each location want to only see training completed at their location.
  • A user transfers from one location to another. The original user profile can be end-dated and a new user profile in the new location can be created. The new profile can have the same position code, role, and set of managers … or it can have a different set of attributes.
  • A manager completes coursework at one location but oversees training at multiple locations. With multiple profiles, this user can assign coursework and track training at each location. This is easily accomplished in the manager’s My Details page by using the Active Profiles control to switch profiles.
  • A user is a division level manager who will be given a location profile where training will take place, but will also be given a second profile at the district level. When the division level manager wants to oversee training at another location in the district, he can accomplish this by switching profiles in the Active Profile control.
  • A user is an LMS Administrator who takes courses at one location but needs a secondary profile to administrate the entire company. When the Administrator operates at the company level, she can perform functions that can affect all business units, divisions, and locations.

The screen shot below shows an example of the multiple profiles assigned to the LMS Administrator.

With Multiple User Profile support, LatitudeLearning allows for flexible user management – at multiple locations or across the entire division, business unit, or company.
