What can a Group Administrator do in the LMS?
Group Admins can only access user data for users that are in the group(s) for which they are an assigned Group Administrator. For example: If Mary Smith is the assigned Group Administrator for the Sales Team, she can only see users that belong to the Sales Team group.
Group Administrators can access the following sections of the admin site:
- Users: Create, search, edit, and merge users.
- Reports: Pull reports such as the courses and users report.
- Courses: Create courses that a Super Admin can then assign to users.
- Site: Create site messages.
