How can I assign training from the Assign Training page?

The Assign Training page under the Administration menu page provides you with multiple options to assign training to your employees! 

To find the Assign Training page, head to the Administration Panel, click on Online Training, and then select Assign Training. From this page, you can select to assign either a Course or a Curriculum, based on the tab you select. 

Who can Assign Training

Admins have access to both Courses and Curricula tabs and can assign all academy courses and curricula.

Training Managers will only have access to the Courses or Curricula tabs if they are allowed to, from the Academy settings. If Training Managers are allowed to assign Courses/Curricula, they will be able to assign all academy Courses/Curricula. 

The users with the Assign Training permission by default can assign only courses and curricula that are listed in categories where they have access. However, Admins can further control what other courses they can assign through the Advanced Settings. 

If you are an Admin you can read more on the Learning Management settings: Learning Management Academy Settings

Now let's check in more detail how you can assign Courses or Curricula and what other options you have on the Assign Training page!

Individual/Advanced/Group Assignment

First, you need to select if you want to assign a Course or a Curriculum. Once you decide click on the relevant tab. The process you will follow from this point on is the same for a Course or a Curriculum.

Use the search bar or filters to find the training you want to assign. Once you find it click on its name to select it!

Now you have to select which users you want to assign to this training. You have three different assignment options: Individual, Advanced, or Group.

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 this assignment to take place at a future date by setting a Future Assignment Date. You can also 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

Please note that once you add value for the due date field, you will see an extra checkbox to “Unassign users once the due date is missed''. If selected, each user who is included in this assignment will be automatically unassigned from the course once their due date passes.

If you select the “Unassign users once due date is missed'', another checkbox will appear, which if selected will auto-unassign the users as soon as they reach their due date, regardless of their completion or certificate’s expiration.

If the training you selected to assign has prerequisites, an "Assign Prerequisites" checkbox will appear. If you check this option, then all prerequisites of this training (courses or curricula) will also be assigned to the selected users.

If the training you selected to assign is a curriculum, and the courses of this curriculum have prerequisites, then the "Assign Prerequisites" option will also assign these prerequisites to the users.

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.

Last but not least, you can also select to combine two different groups of users to match your needs. You can read more on how to combine two assignment groups here: How to combine (un)assignment rules?

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.

If you select to keep this as a one-time assignment, then you can select if you want this assignment to take place at a future date by setting a Future Assignment Date. You can also 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.  

Please note that once you add value for the due date field, you will see an extra checkbox to “Unassign users once the due date is missed''. If selected, each user who is included in this assignment will be automatically unassigned from the course once their due date passes.

If you select the “Unassign users once due date is missed'', another checkbox will appear, which if selected will auto-unassign the users as soon as they reach their due date, regardless of their completion or certificate’s expiration.

If the training you selected to assign has prerequisites, an "Assign Prerequisites" checkbox will appear. If you check this option, then all prerequisites of this training (courses or curricula) will also be assigned to the selected users.

If the training you selected to assign is a curriculum, and the courses of this curriculum have prerequisites, then the "Assign Prerequisites" option will also assign these prerequisites to the users.

Group Assignment

In Schoox, you can select to assign training to one or multiple academy groups. To learn more on how to assign Courses or Curricula to an academy Group you can read the following article: How can I assign courses/curricula to an academy group?

Template Assignment

If you are an Admin or a Training Manager (if your Admin has allowed you to assign training) you are able to use a template to assign training to users. To do so head back to the Assign Training page. 

First, you need to select if you want to assign a Course or a Curriculum. Once you decide click on the relevant tab. Then click on the Download Template button to download the template.

In the template that you downloaded fill in all of the relevant information (such as Course Id, User Id, Assignment date, etc.). You can use this template to assign users to a training, mark users as complete by admin, or add/update due dates. Just fill the fields based on your needs. 

To assign a course the Required fields are:
1) A unique identifier for each user. You can use the Schoox User ID, Email, or External ID. Just make sure that the field that you are using is a unique identifier for your users. 

2) A Course/Curriculum ID for each course/curriculum you need to assign. You can find this by populating a Course/Curriculum Report on the Report Builder, by the reports described below, or by checking the course's/curriculum's URL.  

Once you have filled the template with the needed users and training, click on the Upload button and add your template. The process will begin shortly!

Tips!

  • Due dates should be only future dates
  • Completion dates should be only past dates
  • You have the option to add/edit the due date for a course that is already assigned.

Training Reports

On the Assign Training page, you have the option to download reports for your Courses and Curricula. 

Under the Courses or Curricula tab, you will find one or two Excel icons (depending on your role), each one corresponding to a Report.

The first report, which is only available for Admins and Training Managers, will provide you with a list of all your Courses or Curricula (based on the tab you have selected) and their IDs. 

The second report will provide you with a list of all the Course/Curriculum Automated Rules and the Organizational Structure they have selected. 

Just click on the respective button and your report will be downloaded immediately!
