What's in it for you
Providing various options for permission levels in LearnCore is a significant factor in ensuring the appropriate team members have access to assist in providing training initiatives while maintaining accountability and privacy. Understanding the different permission levels and what is permitted with them is important to the efficient management of your LearnCore account. Here will we cover the available user permissions you can assign to those added to LearnCore. By default, assigning a user gives them learner-level permissions. To upgrade their access level you will need to modify their permissions after creating them in the system.

Note: Those with elevated permission levels can be switched over to Learners when they need to take a course they have been assigned.
- Custom Permissions: If you choose the custom admin permission level, you will have the ability to configure the access level of the admin by checking or unchecking specific admin criteria. When you click custom admin, these criteria will become available. To grant permission, check off the desired functions.
