How do I Create a New LMS Admin Type?

Standard system default Admin Types for the most common-type Admin functionalities come pre-installed with the LMS. 

If you require some extra functionality, new LMS Admin Types may be created easily.

To create a New LMS Admin Type;

  • Ensure the proper Active Team is selected; should there be more than one Active Team.
  • Navigate to the LMS Admin tab > Teams tab.
  • Click on the Team you wish to add an LMS Admin type for and select LMS Admin Types from its context menu.

  • In the LMS Admin Type Management panel, click Add New LMS Admin Type.

The LMS Admin Type Details panel will display.

General Settings;

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.
  • LMS Admin Features: Check the specific boxes next to the LMS Admin module features you want this LMS Admin Type to have specific permissions for.
