Inside the LinkedIn Learning platform, you have the ability to adjust user permissions, including the ability to create sub-administrators with customized permissions.
- [Instructor] If you would like to assign admin permissions to other users in your account, you can do so by first heading over to the People tab. In this case I'm going to up to the People tab and I'll click on that, and this brings me to the page where I can see all of the users in our account. Now, let's say in this case that I want to go down to the user, Mary Ruddy, and make her an admin. What I can do is over to the far right I can select the three dots icon, and then click on Manage Permissions. This next page will tell me that I'm managing permissions for Mary Ruddy.
She currently is a user so she has no admin permissions. You can see here that we can select the admin type. Right now she's just a user. We can also select Full Admin on the far right. This would allow her to manage users and licenses, create and edit groups, view reports, configure IT settings, as well as manage permissions for all of the users. If I didn't want her to have all of these admin privileges I can customize it by clicking on the Sub Admin box. If you click on this it will allow you to adjust it according to specific parameters.
In other words, maybe I want her to be an admin for editing groups, as well as managing, curating, and recommending content, but I don't want her to be able to manage users and licenses, create other sub admins and more. Now down here you'll notice that there's also privileges for viewing reports, and for managing IT settings. Now if this is what I wanted I would click on Save and it would save that. In this case however, I'm going to go back to Full Admin, and I'm going to give Mary full admin privileges.
I'll click on Save and you can see that the full admin access was successfully granted. So, now I'm going to go back up to the People tab and I'm going to click on Allen Marcos. Allen's in a couple of groups that I added between videos and I'm going to click here to manage permissions. Now here I don't want to give Allen full admin privileges, so I'm going to select Sub Admin. From here I can select which groups or which parameters I want to select. Here, I'll click on the first one, Edit Groups. And notice when I do this that I get a link at the end of the sentence here, that says, "Limit to specific groups".
So, for instance, if I wanted Allen to have admin privileges to edit groups, but only in specific groups, I can click here. It brings me to this page, and inside of here I can click, and it will generate these. And let's say I want Allen to have admin privileges for the Sales - West Region group. I'll click on that and then click Apply. Now, below here it says, "Permission limited to Sales "for the West Region." Now what if you had more than one thing that you wanted to add in here? In other words, if we wanted him to be able to edit groups, manage, curate, recommend content, view reports, and manage IT settings, I can then go to this Limit to specific groups.
Notice I'm doing this under the Content tab. When I click here, I have the ability at the bottom to apply the group to just that permission. So in other words, just the content one, or I can click on the drop down and select All selected permissions. Meaning all of the boxes that I've checked. So in here, I'm going type in sales, Sales - West Region, and for all of the boxes that I've selected, I'll click Apply, and now you'll notice that underneath, Allen Marcos' permissions.
He will be able to be an admin for editing groups, for content, reports, and IT settings, but just in the Sales - West Region. Now, when I'm done I'll click on Save, and I've now saved that. I'm going to go back up to the People tab. From here then, I'm going to click on the Admins tab, up at the top. Once I do this I'll hit refresh, and you can see in here that we have now added in a couple other people.
We added in Allen as well as Mary, and their settings are in here. Also from this Admins section, you can also add a new admin by clicking on Add new admin in the upper right corner. When I click on this it asks you who you want to apply this to, you can select them, and then give them admin privileges. So that's how you can grant admin privileges to other people inside of your organization.
