You can classify users within the organisation structure of a company, but sometimes you want to group users based on other characteristics. To do this, you can use groups.
These are the most important features of groups:
Create groups & add users
It's possible to create groups in the organisation structure. You can add users per group. This way you can identify all hired employees or all participants of a summer course.
Add supervisors to a group
You can add supervisors per group. This can be supervisors and managers. The supervisors have, from that moment on, access to the learning analytics of the users in the group.
Automatically sign up users for an activity
You can also link activities or a learning playlist to a group. This way you can ensure that all users from a group will automatically be signed up for specific activities.
An example situation for groups
You can for example create an 'onboarding'-group, for new employees within your company. Link a playlist with the activities they need to do in their first weeks to this group. Every time there are new employees, you add them to the group and they will automatically be added to the playlist.
The users in the group are easily tracked in the analytics.
