Group Admin's Permissions

Group Admin's permission can be configured by site admin, to allow several admin of specific groups to manage the users within their own groups. Is these permissions are not enabled, then only site admin can perform User Management operations. These permissions allow fully delegated user management instead of relying on site admins.

These permissions can be configured from Site Admin -> Site Details - Security Tab

Additional actions for Group Admins on Dashboard

If my groups panel is enabled to display on dashboard, it shows few additional action buttons/links for groups where current user is an admin. These additional links/buttons are

  • View Members Link - this link opens the members tab of the group
  • + Add - this button opens user creation screen. The new user will be added to this group upon creation.
  • ++ Add - this button opens bulk user creation screen. Like previous option, all new users will be added to this group upon creation.
  • Report - this button opens the Learners report for this group (Course Members listing for all enrollments filtered by this group)

Although by default, My Groups panel on dashboard displays all the groups where user is a member (and not just the groups where user is admin), you can set am optional property GROUP_PORTLET_ADMIN_ONLY=true in Site Details->Customization, to make this panel display only those groups where user is an admin. If a user is not an admin in any group, this panel will remain invisible.
