Group Restrictions to Categories

This allows a University Administrator to restrict courses or entire categories of courses so they are only accessible to a certain group(s). Not all content within a university will be relevant information to everyone, making this a great way to filter content.

 

To add group restrictions to categories, please follow the steps below:

  1. Training > Categories
  2. Locate the category to which you want to add group restrictions, then click on Edit
  3. Check the box next to Restrict course enrollment to Groups
  4. Next, check the box next to the group(s) you wish to have access to the category
  5. Once you have selected all the groups you want to have access to the category, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Save.

 

NOTE: Category restrictions and course level restrictions can work in conjunction. 

For example: 
Condition 1: Product 1 course is restricted to Group A only and placed in the Product category
Condition 2: Product 2, Product 3 and Product 4 courses are placed in the Product category, but not further restricted by group. 
Condition 3: The Product category is restricted to Group A and Group B. 

Result: Only members of both groups can see the Product category and courses contained within, however Group B will not be able to see the Product 1 course, since it is available only to Group A.
