LMS Features Tour
Build a foundation for success with SmarterU's powerful user management features that let you manage and organize users, assign permissions, and track activity.
A flexible LMS is your key to organizational success.
SmarterU comes with highly-flexible user management features that let you bring your teams together and assign special permissions to managers.
Support all of your users’ training goals
Your learners could be a combination of employees, volunteers, students, and external stakeholders. SmarterU supports all their learning needs by providing flexible learner management.
Whether you have ten or ten thousand learners, SmarterU LMS can help you manage them.
If your environment has thousands of learners, it can be challenging to keep track of them all. SmarterU LMS can automatically register, provision, and enroll your learners.
From there, you can assign user permissions to trusted users to lend a hand with the management and supervision of all of your learners.
With SmarterU, you can give specific users elevated responsibilities by assigning them special permissions.
Give your managers, administrators, instructors, or anyone else responsibilities within your LMS. This way, your team members can continue their duties, be accountable for their supervisees, and assist with various LMS administration tasks.

Your users bring your LMS to life
With SmarterU, you can quickly add users, import large lists of users, or send LMS registration forms. Synchronize your LMS with your other software tools for seamless user data updates.
Configure default information, like team assignment or learning plan selection, to rapidly add new users with all the details you need.
If you need to add a few new LMS users on the fly, you can do this with SmarterU’s Quick User Add feature in mere seconds with minimal effort.
Import new users or update your existing users from a single data file.
If you need to add or update many users at once, upload your list of users to your LMS. Then, SmarterU will automatically create new user profiles or modify existing ones. Your entire team could be up-to-date and ready to start training in minutes!
Automatically synchronize user data from another software tool, such as your HRIS.
Let SmarterU LMS automatically synchronize existing user data from another system. Then, your organization will enjoy continuous data consistency between the platforms.
Let learners register for your LMS with a custom sign-up form.
We can create a custom user registration form that you can use to invite new users to your LMS. You choose the required fields, and SmarterU will automatically create a new user profile for every registrant that includes all the information they entered.
If you’re using SSO (single sign-on), SmarterU can create a new user profile upon successful login.
Once your users log in to your LMS through SSO, SmarterU will automatically create a new user profile for them using your account defaults.
With SmarterU’s searchable, filterable, and sortable user profiles, you can find any important information about your users in a flash.
Once you’ve added users to your LMS, find everything you need to know about them in their user profiles. You can also see a quick “preview” of the user’s profile by hovering over their name.
Each user’s profile details can be edited by either the user or an administrator. Some of these details include:

Declutter your LMS
You have the flexibility to sort your LMS users into sub-accounts, groups, teams, and organizations, giving you more time to focus on other aspects of your training program.
Organize your LMS users into groups to represent subsidiaries, locations, departments, or anything else.
Each group contains users, courses, and learner results. You can auto-enroll batches of learners based on their group, choose which courses are associated with them, and use them to run reports on specific data.
Each user is assigned to a single home group which allows you to deliver a more customized learning experience.
Home groups behave like any other group but with the additional benefits of optional custom branding and unique login pages. These options make them an ideal feature for companies that include multiple subsidiaries.
Sort your LMS users into teams to assign courses, learning plans, and track learners’ enrollments from multiple groups or sub-accounts.
Let users interact, collaborate, and access training from outside their groups or sub-accounts with teams. Teams are also an excellent way to associate users from different groups who play similar roles and facilitate reporting on user and course data from across the LMS.
Arrange your users into organizations, giving you the ability to assign, enroll, and report on their training based on their location.
Organizations are a great way to group users when their location is a leading factor in their training needs. Perfect for a userbase that includes volunteers, contractors, customers, and more.

Choose who can co-pilot your LMS
Your team members play many different roles at your organization. Use SmarterU’s extensive permission system to give everyone access to what they need to do their jobs.
Delegate managerial and administrative tasks to chosen LMS users with SmarterU’s extensive permission capabilities.
We know that your LMS includes many types of users using SmarterU for various reasons. SmarterU LMS equips you with robust, highly-flexible user permissions so you can cater to them all..
You can assign users any combination of permissions so they can perform any role you need. Create your perfect permission cocktail (or mocktail!), blended and balanced to your organization’s needs.
Give specific LMS users limited account administration capabilities.
Supplement your full LMS administrators by giving specific users elevated account permissions.
For example, you may allow a user to create new groups in your LMS or assign training to any user from any group without giving them any other account administrator-level permissions.
Designate other LMS users as your group managers.
SmarterU LMS lets you delegate group management tasks to users who are not members of your account administration team. You can give these users full administration duties for specific groups or assign them limited management capabilities.
Give specific users control over courses without giving them control over your account or groups.
Your LMS may include training managers, subject matter experts, instructors, course authors, or other users who should be able to control your training content without elevated account permissions. In SmarterU, you can do that with our course-level permissions.
Assign course manager duties to your LMS users and let them enroll learners, edit content, grade quizzes, adjust ILT waiting lists, and report on training. You can assign limited course management capabilities or complete control over courses.
Provide your users with additional permissions alongside their account, group, and course-level permissions.
The number of potential permission combinations is only limited by your imagination. However, SmarterU LMS also provides individual-based permissions that you can assign regardless of the user’s other permissions.
Some of these permissions include:
Emulate any organizational structure with the perfect mix of user permissions. Talk to one of our learning solutions experts to find the right blend for you.
