Users in the system can be organised into user groups as a way to control which users can see which courses, and to allow filtering when viewing reports. Training Post allows you to  create as many groups as required and users can be in as many different groups as necessary.


By default the system contains a single “All users” group. Every user is automatically added to this group when they are created.


The user groups can be seen and managed by selecting “Manage > Users and groups” from the top menu. The groups panel appears first this page.


Selecting a group will update the view in the main panel of the page to show the selected group name at the top, and filtering the list of users to show only members of that group. Using the buttons at the top of the main panel, you can add users to the group, rename the group or delete it.



Group hierarchies - parent and child

Grouping flows hierarchically, ie to be in a child group you must be in a parent group. 

To make adding members to groups quicker, when users are added to a child group they automatically become a member of the parent group(s) above it. 


Example:


All users

    Management

        Senior management

    Sales

        Telesales

        Show room


  • Adding a user to the senior management group would also add them automatically to the management group. 
  • You would find all members of telesales and show room in the sales group.
  • Adding a user to sales would not add them to telesales or show room.
