Roles and permissions

Permissions control what a person can view and perform in the Percolate LMS™ environment. Within Percolate, all people can:

Percolate LMS™ is not a typical LMS that restricts you into classifying all your people as learners, course developers or administrators. Percolate provides the flexibility that allows you to choose permissions per person when viewing their profile.

Sometimes too many choices can be daunting. That is why we have developed a set of typical profiles to illustrate how you may want to use Percolate.

Setting or changing a person's permissions

A person's permissions are set when their account is created. People with Is Account Admin access can change another person's permissions at any time. If you can change a person's permissions, you will see the permissions listed when looking at any other person's profile. Notice how permissions are expanded under Advanced Settings. By default, the permissions are collapsed under Advanced Settings.
