Add Multiple Child Teams

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


This article will briefly describe the purpose and process of adding Multiple Child Teams.

Purpose behind Adding Multiple Child Teams

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

The Accord LMS has the convenient option of adding multiple Child Teams during the same process, saving both time and effort.

Child Team Permissions

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

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

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

Add Multiple Child Teams

To create multiple Child Teams;

  • Ensure the proper Current Team is selected. Menu located lower-left of screen.

  • Navigate to the Teams tab.

  • Select and highlight a Team to function as the Parent Team for your new Child Teams. 

You may choose to use the top-level All Members Team to serve as the Parent Team or a preexisting Child Team.

  • Click 3 dots at right to open this Team's context menu and select Add Multiple Child Teams.

The Add Child Teams panel will display.

  • Child Teams to Create: In the field provided enter only one Child Team per line as shown in example below. 

After creating these Child Teams you can add any desired individual Team details per Child Team by using the Team Details feature.

For help information on Team Details please see; Team Details.

  • Click Add Teams to create these new Child Teams.

Creating an Additional Team Hierarchy while Creating New Child Teams

To create an additional Team Hierarchy at the very same time you are creating new Child Teams, for whatever New Child Team you wish to create under another New Child Team, on a new line, repeat the same name of the New Child Team from the lines above, followed by a greater than symbol (>), followed by the name of a New Child Team.

For example; you want to create 3 New Child Teams, Team A, Team B and Team C, but you want Team C to be a New Child Team under Team B.

Enter the syntax as seen in the image below.

Using this syntax will create 3 new Child Teams, with new Child Team C being placed under new Child Team B.

  • Click Add Teams to create these New Child Teams.

As you can see in the image below;

Team A, Team B and Team C were created under the Talent Seek Team, with Team C being placed under Team B.
