Add a Child Team

When using the Accord LMS, hovering over information icons displays helpful tips.


This article will briefly describe the purpose and process of adding an LMS Child Team.

Purpose behind Adding a Child Team

On occasion an LMS Admin may choose to manage a particular group of Learners inside of their own dedicated Child Team.

Since each Child Team can be managed somewhat independently of other Teams, having a segmented group of Learners assigned to their own Team will allow an LMS Admin the limited ability to manage Learners on this Team in a manner independent of other Learners on other Teams.

Child Team Permissions

Child Teams may possess the same level of access and permissions of their selected Parent Team, or any Child Teams thereof. 

Child Teams cannot possess any permission's greater than their Parent Team (or any Teams higher in the Team hierarchy). 

Permissions may include access to Learning Roles, access to Catalog Folders or any LMS Admin privileges.
