Assigning permissions to users in your LinkedIn Learning account will help manage users. There are different levels of permissions, sub-administrators, or user permissions. Find out how to customize permissions in this video.
- [Instructor] If you would like to assign admin permissions to other users in your account, you can do so by heading over to the People path and selecting Users. From your user list, go ahead and choose the user you wanna make a sub admin and select Manage Permissions. Here you have all of the permission types, user, sub admin, and full admin. Full admin privileges allow a user to manage users and licenses, create and edit groups, view reports, configure IT settings, and manage permissions for all users.
This is the highest level of administration. Sub admins have more limited access, and you can pick and choose which privileges they have access to. There are options here to edit groups, manage people and licenses, manage content, reports, and IT settings. The details of what each option can do is listed to the right of the option. By selecting any of these radio buttons, you are allowing that person to manage that item.
If you want someone to only have sub admin privileges for specific groups, you can specify those groups by selecting Limit to specific groups. Here, type in the group. When it pops up, you can select it. At the bottom of this window, you'll see the option to apply group selection to just this permission. You can click on this arrow and have the option to also add this to all selected permissions. So to show you this, I'm gonna go ahead and click out of this first, and I'm gonna go back and choose other options.
So this one and this one. And now I'm gonna go back to Limit to specific groups, and here when I type in Managers and Marketing again, now when I click on this Just this permission option and I select All selected permissions, and if I go ahead and select Apply here, so you'll see that across all permissions, that option has automatically applied Managers and Marketing to all of my group permissions.
In addition, once you give a sub admin access to one group, if you would then like them to see all groups, at the bottom of the page here, you can choose Make all groups and users visible to this user. Keep in mind they will only have access to manage permissions for all groups on items that you have checked in this longer list here. If you would like to give a sub admin permission to give the same permissions they have to other users, you can select this Create other sub admins permission.
This gives that sub admin the permission to create other sub admins with the same permissions they have, or they can choose to remove some of the options from their list. This is helpful for larger organizations who have many levels of managers. The higher level managers can empower their supervisors or managers to be sub admins of their own teams or groups. One of the newer permissions I wanna point out also is this Manage IT Settings. If you wanna give someone the ability to manage IT settings for, say, integration purposes, and you don't want them to have access to anything else, you can select just this option and allow them to access and configure SSL and other advanced integrations.
When you're done selecting which permissions to assign, go ahead and click Save. Now when I go back to the top of the page, it's hard to see here, but I can click Back to Admins. Under this Admins tab, now I can see my larger list of admins. From here, I can also revoke permissions by selecting the more option to the right of the user and choosing Revoke admin. This'll ask me if I'm sure I wanna revoke the admin, and I can select Remove admin to confirm.
