Roles are used to define the functions a user can perform in LatitudeLearning. While the LMS Reporting Hierarchy determines a manager's team members, Role assignment controls which tools a user can access based on their training responsibilities.
LatitudeLearning comes equipped with seven distinct roles. The following diagram represents the scope of Role functionality, starting with the complete "Portal Administrator" tool set, and ending with the simplest "Guest" experience.
can access all LMS features.
have most tools, except key record and site management.
can schedule course offerings, enroll others, conduct live training, manage rosters and record attendance.
manage and report on training activities within an organization.
oversee course enrollment and training progress at their location.
have access to course and resource catalogs, personal training account and history.
can only access assigned training content.
The vast majority of users are students, responsible for consuming training materials and completing assignments. Users assigned the "Student" role can search both Course and Resource catalogs, launch courses they are eligible to take, as well as view the Training Calendar to enroll in instructor-led course offerings. Students can also check their training schedule at-a-glance from the

page, update contact and password information on their
page, and access personal
printable Certificates of Completion.
Roles work in conjunction with the Reporting Hierarchy to scope user access to LMS data. For example, in order for a user to run transcript reports, his profile must include a managerial relationship and a role that grants access to the reporting tool. Role assignment
is the primary way LatitudeLearning allows Portal Administrators to configure the user experience with tool access and navigation options.
