Site administrators can perform various tasks relating to the management and organization of user accounts. The most important user management actions when getting started with your Pluto LMS are described here and the included links will provide more information on the specific user management task.
ADDING USERS TO YOUR PLUTO LMS
If you only need to add a small number of users to your LMS, you can manually create their individual user accounts in Site admin.
If you need to add large amounts of users to your LMS, you can upload a text (.csv) file to perform this action in bulk.
ADDING CUSTOM INFORMATION TO USER PROFILES
You can record all relevant user profile data by creating custom profile fields.
Custom profile fields can be used as the basis of two useful user management automations:
ORGANIZING USERS AT A SITE-WIDE LEVEL
You can organize users at a site level by adding them to site-wide groups called branches. The purpose of branches is to enable you to separate and easily manage different groups of users at a site-wide level. For example: you can send messages to all the members of a specific branch or use the Branch sync enrollment method to synchronise enrollment into a certain course with branch membership.
Add users to branches:
ENROLLING USERS INTO COURSES
If you are only enrolling a few users into a course, you can manually enroll them.
If you need to enroll a large number of users into a course, you can upload a text (.csv) file to bulk enroll users to courses.
You can automate course enrollment by synchronizing course enrollment with branch membership via the branch sync enrollment method.
ORGANIZING USERS AT A COURSE LEVEL
You can organize users at a course level by adding them to course groups. Course groups allow you to separate users and user data within a specific course. For example: you can filter course reports by course group so that you see only data pertaining to a specific group of learners in that course.
Create course groups:
Add users to course groups:
You can automate this process with the Auto Groups function or by synchronizing group membership with branch membership when setting up a branch sync enrollment method.
EDIT, SUSPEND OR DELETE USER ACCOUNTS
If a user is suspended at a site wide level, they will not be able to access your LMS until you reactivate their account. Users can also be suspended at a course level, in which case they will be able to access your LMS but not the course from which they have been suspended.
