LMS WITH USER ROLES AND GROUP MANAGEMENT
Abara LMS’es user roles and group management defines the organization structure and hierarchy. Like any other good LMS out there, Abara segregates learners, administrators, instructors, and other users based on roles and responsibilities.
USER ROLES AND GROUP MANAGEMENT
ORGANIZING USERS AND GROUPS ON ABARA LMS
Abara allows learners and managers to organize or segment user data in multiple methods:
Branch: This is the default way to segment users within the system. For a small organization, this may be enough. Larger organizations may need to combine this with custom fields.
Group: This is another basic way to organize your users within the system for assignment and reporting.
Custom Field: This is a powerful feature to segment and organize the users within the system in any way they want. Administrators have complete flexibility to structure their organizations and map to and connect to third-party systems’ meta-data requirements.
Sub-administrator, Line Manager, and Power User roles can be restricted to a branch, a group, and/or a custom field. Reports can also be extracted for each of these users’ meta data types.
Abara LMS’es Customer Success and Onboarding Team will understand the user data structures that your organization needs based on size and will help you map out the structure within Abara LMS using these three methods.
The importance of the custom fields feature is based on its ability to create almost any time of datatype to organize and structure user meta-data. The data types include:
Creation of drop-downs
Free text entry
Abara’s custom fields feature has been appreciated by our customers for its ability to handle all possible scenarios to organize user data. Custom fields can be used for:
Filtering screens and reports for Administrators, Power Users, Line Managers, etc.
Course/learning path visibility rules for learner catalog
USE CASE FOR BRANCH, GROUPS, AND CUSTOM FIELDS
Abara LMS uses branches, groups, and custom fields for different purposes depending on the size and complexity of an organization. Branches and groups may be sufficient for smaller organizations.
Custom fields are a powerful way to organize and segment user data for the large enterprise organizations as well with limitless ability to handle organization structures.
Branch: This could be used to organize users by departments such as Sales, Marketing, Operations, Customer Service, and Management.
Group: This could be used to organize sales teams by the products/services that they sell/support if another secondary method is required to organize users from within the branches.
Custom Fields: Used to specify the user’s city, address, designation, role, etc.
Branch: This could be used to organize users by location in case of a large multi-location organization.
Group: This could be used to organize teams within each location by department if another secondary method is required to organize users from within the branches.
Custom Fields: This could be used to specify the user’s city, address, designation, role, etc.
