Create admin user groups

To create an Admin User group:

  1. Navigate to the "Admin Users" section via the "People" menu in the left navigation. You can also select Modules and Settings > People > Admin Users.

  2. At the top left, select "Add Group."

  3. Leave default settings in the top section.

    Note: User Group Type "Restricted" was previously used for Page Manager "Teacher Page" admins, which are no longer used.

  4. Allocate rights in the bottom section by checking and unchecking permissions to modules as needed.

    Note: The "(admin)" option next to certain modules will give the user group full access to the module. Those without the (admin) option will grant access to the module but to no content within it.

  5. Click "Save Group Changes" at the bottom to create your group.

  6. To add users to this group, see our article on Adding and Removing Admin Users.

  7. For new groups with rights to Composer, review their Composer permissions.

Troubleshooting Tip: If a Chrome browser has autofill turned on, an error message asking for a password may appear. Turning off the autofill option in Chrome or completing this task in another browser is recommended.

  • When I step through this and his Save Group Changes, I get a prompt that says "Please enter a valid password for the new user. if you with to abort adding a user, leave the user name field blank." I don't see a field for either new user name or password.

  • Hi Kimberly!

    This can sometimes happen when your browser is Google Chrome, and the Chrome auto-fill feature is on. The best ways to work around it are to either use a different browser or disable auto-fill. If that doesn't work, please feel free to submit a ticket to our Support team so they can assist you further.
