Primary Groups are used to define line-management responsibility (and therefore the team members who appear in a manager’s dashboard panel). Primary Groups, and Primary Group managers are typically created and managed by the People Data Feed.
For a manager to see their team members in the Managers dashboard, Learn must be configured as follows:
- Team members must exist in a Group (management Groups are often given the name of the manager)
- The Group must be the Primary Group for the team members (this is configured in the Organisational Information of a User’s profile)
- The Manager for the Group must be specified (Users must have at least an LMS role of ‘Manager’ to be assigned as manager to a Group)
The manager for the Group will see in their Managers dashboard, all Users for whom the Group is specified as their Primary Group.
To assign a User as Group Manager, click ‘Select’ next to the ‘Manager’ field on the Group Details page:
