How do I Create a new LMS Admin Type?

System Default Admin Types for the most common Admin functionalities come pre-installed with the LMS. If you require some extra functionalities, new LMS Admin Types may be created.

To create a New LMS Admin Type;

  • Navigate to the LMS Admin tab.
  • Select the Teams tab.
  • Ensure the proper Active Team has been selected.
  • Click on the Team you wish to add an LMS Admin type to and select LMS Admin Types from its context menu.

Feature Permission: This is organized into permissions allowed through the LMS Administration Module, Report Module and Learner Module. It is further divided according to feature choices.

  • Access Roles: In order to simplify the page permissions settings when adding new users, checking the boxes for LMS Admin Access and LMS Reports Access will instruct the LMS to generate the full set of permissions which grants a user the authorization required to access all of the LMS features with the exception of any which might be limited through this specific LMS Admin Type.
