Groups can be assigned as a descendant of another group to build group hierarchies. Group hierarchies are useful for reports and for assigning courses and catalogues to an organisational unit. For example, a Course assigned to a Group at the top of a group hierarchy is automatically assigned to all members in descendant groups.
Group Hierarchies are often used to simplify reporting. For example, Primary Groups are configured with a logical hierarchy. The same structure is then reflected when viewing training reports.
Group hierarches are assigned through the Group administration menu.
Note: Group hierarchy is used for learning assignment only. Accreditation assignments are not cascaded to descendant Groups.
