Configure User Permissions

Configuring user permissions on EdApp makes it easy to dictate the level of user access to the platform. Here's how.

Users can be assigned to a variety of permissions on EdApp. These permissions dictate their level of access to the platform – for instance, whether they can create content, view analytics, add other users etc. In this post, we explain the various permissions available and how to assign them to users.

1. Navigate to 'Users' and click on an individual user’s profile

This can be found under the user pane. From there, click on the user whose permissions you would like to assign.

Roles Available

Assign a user certain permissions by simply checking the box next to the role and clicking save.

Here is what each of the roles means:

  • Admin: They have access to all areas of the LMS and can perform administrative functions for the program, such as creating user groups and invite codes, assigning courseware, altering prize draws etc.
  • Content Author: They are able to utilise the EdApp Authoring Tool to create content. Only those with this permission assigned are able to use the authoring tool. They can also publish content.
  • Manager Analytics: They have been assigned as a manager to a specific user group(s) and checking this box grants them access to the Manager’s Dashboard reporting for these groups. Be sure to also configure their individual Manager settings in the Manager section on this page.
  • Learner: They have access to the published courseware that has been assigned to them. Users are automatically granted Learner access upon registration.
  • Prizing User: If you have enabled a Starbar with prizing, checking this box will grant the user access to these features.
  • Excluded from Analytics: They will not appear in your reporting. This is useful if you don’t want to include Admins or Managers in the results.
  • Reviewer: They have access to all content (including drafted). This is useful if you want them to review content before learners are able to see it.
  • Instructor: They have access to social learning, discussions and assignments. This gives admins the flexibility to have another person help out with managing the comments and submissions on the features in the 'Peer Learning' tab.
