Agylia uses the concept of roles to control who can perform what actions within the system. Most users are learners and you do not need to give learners any specific type of role. Any user becomes a learner by default when you add them to the system, and this means they can login to the Web learner portal and Apps and access any content that is assigned to them by the targeting process.
For administrators on the other hand, you need to define their specific set of roles to determine what they can and cannot do within the Agylia administration portal.
The most powerful role on the system is the Global administrator role. As these users have access to everything - all content and all users on the platform, you should only assign a very limited number of global administrators.
Other administrators might only need to be able to administer selected sets of user accounts, or reset passwords for certain cohorts, or manage content only. By assigning one or more of the following role types to relevant users throughout your organisation, you can limit their administration rights and control the cohorts over which they have these rights. For example, you might assign the Reporter role to a user but limit their ability to report to only users within the Sales and Marketing groups.
Agylia supports the following user roles:
- Global administrator. The most powerful administrators, can do anything on the system.
- Content administrator. Can manage content and assign it to selected cohorts.
- User administrator. Can administer restricted sets of user accounts.
- Group administrator. Can administer groups and group membership for selected cohorts.
- Password administrator. Can reset passwords for specific cohorts.
- Certification administrator. Can manage certifications and award certificates for selected cohorts.
- Notifier. Can send push and email notifications to specific cohorts.
- Reporter. Can run reports over specific cohorts.
- Team Leader. Can access the team leader dashboard to monitor team activity.
