Join Lynda.com Staff for an in-depth discussion in this video Navigating user management, part of Getting Started as a Lynda.com Administrator.
- Let's take a look at the manage user's page. Towards the bottom of the page is a list of all the users in your organization. You can think of this kind of like your master user list. Right above the master list is your list of assigned admins and sub admins. Just above your list of users is a search box where you can easily locate an individual user's information by typing their name directly in here. Here on the user list you can sort users by first name, last name, email address, or last login.
These quick edit options on the far right give you access to quick shortcut options that you can use to quickly add a user to a group, edit that user's profile, send an email to the user, or assign a playlist to them. And just above your lists you have two options, to add users and manage users. These contain a variety of actions you can take. Up on the top left of the page you have the list of all of your groups here in this group's pod.
As a master admin you can see the master list of everyone in your organization that has been added to your account. As a sub admin you can see just the list of groups that you directly manage. Under the groups you have profile attributes, which you can toggle on and off to filter your user list. So, if I want to see all of my users who are not in a group I'll just click on this attribute and populated below are the list of users who are the only users in my organization who are not in a group.
If I toggle that off, it gives me my master list again. To the right of the group's pod is your playlist pod, which shows you what playlists are assigned to each individual group. And to the right of that is your activities feed, which you can toggle through to see different options based on different groups. Now that we're a little more familiar with the functions available from the user management page, next, let's figure out how to use these functionalities.
