If you are not new to the Connecteam platform, then we are sure that you know about Admin permissions. These permissions allow you to set exactly what actions an admin can take in regards to a specific feature.

Courses are an easy way to create and deliver a digital type of training or process for your team to be able to perform from anywhere and at any time. These can be onboarding new employees, training for new positions and any other needs you can think of. To ensure that each course is run correctly and appropriately for the organization, you can set different permissions for individual admins who need to run the course. In this article we will go over the admin permissions which are specific to the courses feature and how to set them.

Pro tip: If you are new to Connecteam then we recommend you have a look at this article to get a better understanding of what Admin permissions are, before continuing with this step.

How to Set Admin Permissions in the Courses Feature

To set permissions for an admin in the courses feature, enter the feature and go to the admin section in the top panel, and select the + sign. Here you can add a new admin and set their permissions, or adjust the permissions for an existing admin. Take a look at how this looks below.

Types of Permissions

You can define several types of permissions for each Courses category created.

View Courses Insights - This permission will allow the admins to enter the admin dashboard of each of the courses, view the statistics and progress of users taking the course, filter users and send them reminders as needed.

Edit Courses and Course Settings - This permission will allow the system administrator to enter the administration page of each of the courses and in addition to viewing the course statistics, he can edit the course (update, add, delete objects, etc.), update the course settings (general, object scheduling) and even archive and edit recipients.

Add New Courses - This permission will allow admins in addition to the previous two permissions to create new courses within the category.

What do my admins see if they try to perform an action that they do not have permissions for?

If an admin tries to perform an action that they do not have permission for they will be notified that permission is required. Take a look at how this looks below.

Pro tip: Stay tuned! In the future, you will release permissions for specific course and not the entire courses category. This will enable you to give admins different permissions per a course.
