How do I control access to Path LMS content to specific groups of people?

For detailed information about group permissions, please visit the document library.

Groups are created in Path LMS to manage privileges to courses, events, and content. Members of a group have access to all the content, events, and courses as defined by the administrator. As an administrator, you can assign, edit, or revoke permissions for a specific group or an individual by utilizing Access Codes, Single Sign On, and Self- Designation at registration and by setting default user groups.

Let’s specifically address the power of the default user groups:

  • You can have one default user group. To set the default user group, select the checkbox titled, “Make this group all users are placed in by default.”
  • Every new user not added to a group by access code, single sign on, or self-designation at registration will be automatically placed in the default group.
  • A good example is having two groups – Member and Non-Member. Here you can set Non-Member as the default group. Any user not added to Member will automatically become a Non-Member.
  • You can have as many default content groups as you like. To set a default content group, select the checkbox titled, “Automatically add this group when creating content.”
  • Should you frequently need certain group assignments on all or most of your content, click to set this as a default. For example, let’s say that you have two groups, Member and Non-Member. If all of your content is available to Members, but only some of it is available to Non-Members, setting Member as a default group ensure its pre-selected on each piece of content you create. This way you don’t have to select Member each time you create a new event, course item, etc.
  • Content can be made available to a group in two ways. – The admin panel and Access to Content can be set individually when content is edited or created from the Advanced
