As a LinkedIn Learning admin, you have the ability to grant others admin permissions. In this video, learn how to assign someone admin or customized subadmin permissions.
- [Instructor] As the admin, you have the ability to grant other users admin permissions. To do this, I'm going to go to the People tab and then Users. From the list of users here, you can decide who you want to give admin permissions. In this case, I want to grant them to Allen Marcos. To the right of his name, I'm going to select a three-dots icon. And from here, I'll select manage permissions. This brings me to a page where I can grant him either sub admin or full admin permissions. If I click on Full Admin, it will let you know what they can do, and this is the works. They can manage users and licenses, edit groups, configure IT settings and more. So this is a lot of power to give someone because they will be a full admin for the entire platform. Now, I may decide that I only want them to have particular admin permissions. So here, if I want that, I can click on Sub Admin. Once I do this, I can select the sub admin permissions that I want to grant here to Allen Marcos. So, down below we have Groups that I can click if I want him to edit groups. And in this situation, I actually only want him to be able to have admin permissions in a specific group. Well, that's fine. I'll click here to limit to specific groups. I'll type in that group name, select it, and then apply. And now you can see that Allen had permission limited to the sales group. Next, you can decide if you want to grant admin permissions for people and licenses, for content, the ability to review reports, as well as to manage IT settings. So you can go in here and really pick and choose which admin privileges you would like to give to that person. Once you're done, click on Save, and it says here that the sub admin access was successfully granted. Now an example of taking advantage of these sub admin privileges might be for someone like a sales manager from your organization who you want to sub admin permissions so they can monitor relevant groups and manage people, content and more within their department. There are many situations in which it may be beneficial to grant people sub admin permissions, perhaps to a manager who can curate the most relevant courses for their team, or an admin in a remote office who best understands the needs of the learners on the ground in that location. Take the time to strategically determine who you'd like to have these admin permissions.
