Training for the administrator (main functionality)

Last update: 18.04.2024


Creating an organizational structure for users in the "SETTINGS" section

SETTINGS is a section for creating an organizational structure that reflects the relationship of divisions, services, departments of your company and employees based on their position, geographic location, functions performed or other criteria by which content will be assigned on the platform and reporting will be uploaded.

Below is an example of a user organizational structure consisting of company departments and employee positions. This structure will allow, for example, to assign training only to sales managers. In this case, new employees with the specified position will have access to this training automatically, without additional actions on the part of the administrator.


Example of user structure

You can find various cases on creating an organizational structure on this link.

The existing structure can be adjusted:

  • To delete a group, hover over it and click on the trash can icon that appears at the end of the line;

  • To edit the title, use the pencil icon;

  • To add a group, click the "Add" button under the group within which you want to create a subgroup.


Adding, Editing, Deleting Groups

To add a large number of groups, use import: click Options - Import, download the template and fill it out, reading the tips inside.

Below is an example of importing subgroups into the "Region" group


Group ImportMore detailed instructions for importing groups can be found here.

Add your employee organization chart in the Settings section to proceed to creating users.


Adding employees in the "USERS" section

USERSis a section for creating, editing, temporarily blocking and deleting employees with the ability to track their latest activity in the system, send invitations with login data and form a team of subordinates for managers.

There are several ways to create and edit users on the platform:

1. Adding one user at a time by the administrator with a small number of employees.

To create a user, click "Add", fill out information about the employee and select a group for him in the organizational chart, and if necessary, send an invitation with login information.


Adding Users

- Fill in the User Login.

- Set a Password or generate one.

- Enter the user's Phone and Email. Checking the “Phone confirmed / Email confirmed” checkboxes allows the user to skip the phone/email number verification step when logging into the application.

- Fill in the Last Name and First Name fields.

- Specify the manager’s Email so that he can see his team members inside the application.

If Phone, Email, Last Name and First Name are not filled in, the user will be able to enter them in the application himself when logging in for the first time. The manager must confirm the Email so that he can see his team.

More detailed instructions for adding a user can be found here.

2. Import of users by the administrator using a template for adding employees in bulk.

To add a large number of users, use import: click Options - Import, download the template and fill it out, reading the tips inside. Check the "Send invitations to new users after import" checkbox to ensure employees receive login information.


Importing Users

3. Generation of accounts by the administrator according to specified rules.

To create anonymized accounts for employees for whom you do not have contact information and full names (for example, partners, freelancers or candidates), use the generation, which allows you to create the required number of accounts according to specified rules. The system will generate logins and passwords for them, and employees will enter the rest of the data themselves the first time they log into the system.
More detailed instructions for generating users can be found here.

4. Self-registration of users in the system.

To connect the "Registration" module, contact your support manager. By clicking “Register”, employees will be able to independently set their login and password, indicate their full name and contacts, and also select the group in the organizational structure to which they belong. If necessary, you can set up rules according to which the account will be automatically assigned to the desired group in the organizational structure and gain access to the necessary content.

More detailed information on self-registration options can be found here.

5. Automatic integration of users from the internal corporate system.

To automate routine work and set up data exchange between the platform and external services (HR system, CRM, ATS), contact your support manager.

You can learn more about integration with client services in this article.

Create a user for yourself and other people participating in the test so you can start uploading content and test how it will display from those accounts.


Uploading content to the "Training Programs" section

TRAINING PROGRAMS is a section for creating an employee development path from training materials with a given progression logic. The Training Program section is closely related to the Materials section.

MATERIALS is a bank in which documents, videos, longreads, links, tests and electronic courses in SCORM and HTML5 format are stored, from which training programs are compiled.

Before you can create a training program, you must first download the materials for it.

Uploading materials
To upload a new material, go to the Materials section, click "Create new" in the upper right corner and select the required type of material.


Creating Materials
