As an administrator, you can create and nest groups in the Trainer Dashboard without restriction. Among other things, you may want to allow trainers to create their own groups but keep the hierarchy. Trainers can be restricted in the creation of groups.
Use cases for the restriction of trainers
If trainers create and manage their group themselves, it makes sense to restrict the creation of subordinate groups.
Concrete use cases for the restriction are:
Teachers can only create classes in their own school without nesting them further.
Trainers can create their own "teams" in their own locations/departments.
To ensure synchronisation of an external user database, no further subordinate groups may be created.
Create groups as administrator
As an administrator, you can create groups in the Trainer Dashboard with the same rights as in the Groups menu item. For each group you are allowed to see, you can also create child user groups and nest them further.
In the above example, we are logged into the group "ovos" with the role Admin. In the menu item "Groups" we thus have the authorisation in the Trainer Dashboard to add new groups and to add further child user groups for each visible group.
In the Trainer Dashboard, the logged-in administrator also has the right to create children groups under all visible groups.
Restrict group creation for trainers
In our example, we have configured advanced settings for creating child user groups for the ovos media group. Trainers in the group "ovos" may only create child user groups in the specified group "ovos".
As a logged-in trainer in the "ovos" group, it is only possible to create child user groups in the "ovos" group under the menu item "Groups". A creation of subordinate groups in the other visible groups is not possible due to the restriction of group creation.
In the Trainer Dashboard, trainers can create groups with the same permissions as in the menu item "Groups". When creating new groups, the selection of parent groups is restricted by the group configuration of the group "ovos media". In our example, the logged-in trainer can only select the group "ovos media".
