Create and Manage Groups

  • Updated

Group learners together (such as by their company) to tailor your training content to specific audiences and track progress data. You can assign one or multiple students to a group, and then filter analytics for that group only. Students can also belong to multiple groups.

There are four different ways to assign students to a group.

  1. Members - Select students from a list of all users who have registered for a course.
    • The Available Members column on the left includes every user who has registered for at least one course.
    • Select a user to select them, then select the corresponding arrow to move them into the list of Selected Members on the right.
    • You can highlight multiple users at a time, and you can search for users by name or email address.
    • Once you have finished assigning users to the Selected members list, select Save.
  2. Domain access - Auto-assign any students to a group who use a specific access code pool when registering for your domain.
  3. Promo codes - Auto-assign students to a group who use a specific promo code when registering for a course.
  4. Signup field - Auto-assign students to a group based on the selection they make from a custom picklist signup field. For example, if your pick list signup field is labeled "Role", and it provides users the options of Account Manager, Project Manager, or Director of Operations, you can create a group for each role, then auto-assign students that choose Account Manager to the Account Manager group, etc. Learn more about advanced signup field rules.
