How can I assign multiple Courses to multiple users?

In Schoox, users with Admin rights, Training Managers or Managers with the Assign Training permission enabled, can assign multiple Courses to multiple users.

There are two different ways to complete this kind of assignment:

  • Assignment Template 
  • Assign Multiple Courses option

Let's check both of the options in more detail!

1. Assignment Template

The Assignment Template is an option available to the Admins and the Training Managers of an Academy (if the Admin has allowed them to assign training). To learn how to leverage the Assignment Template, read more: How can I assign training from the Assign Training page?

2. Assign Multiple Courses Option

The Assign Multiple Courses option can be found under the Assign Multiple Courses page. To find the Assign Multiple Courses page, head to the Administration Panel, click on Online Training, and then select Assign Multiple Courses. From this page, you can select to assign multiple different Courses to multiple users.

Individual assignment

You can find individuals easier using the search field and drop-down filter menus. In order to select an individual, simply click the Plus symbol next to his/her name in the left-hand column. The user will then appear in the right-hand Selected column. To remove an individual from the list, click the Minus symbol.

Once you have selected the users that you want to assign, you can select if you want the users to have this training completed in a certain number of days or by a specific date, by setting a Due Date

You can also select to assign the course's prerequisites by checking the "Assign Prerequisites" checkbox. If you check this option, then all prerequisites of the course you select on the next step, will also be assigned to the selected users.

Add a message (if you want to) and click the Next button to select the Courses. 

Advanced assignment

You can select to assign users based on their job and location. Under Advanced selection, select the specific job to which this process should be applied. Then, select both the desired Above Units and Units in their respective columns, filtering using the drop-down menus, if needed.Screenshot_23.png

You can also filter the users further based on custom fields that you have set up for your Academy by clicking the "Choose Additional Fields" dropdown. 

Another option you have below is to select to assign only users that have a specific Preferred Content Language selected.

After you have applied all the needed filters and selections, the number of individuals affected will appear below.

You have the choice to either make this a one-time assignment and/or set up an auto-assignment rule that will automatically assign individuals under these parameters in the future.
