For detailed information about configuring the Quiz Settings please consult the User Guide.

Then click Next button. You will presented with the following screen:

Picture 21

From this page you can confirm the Tenant Region or go back to select another one.


Remember that you can select Region once only (i.e. if you have previously selected the Region, there will be no such a step for other add-ins). After you have selected the Region, it will be applied for all add-ins of LMS365 suite and could not be changed on your own initiative (only by request).


The LMS 365 | Quiz Builder Add-in comes with an Add-in Part. The Add-in Part will provide the UI for users to view and complete Quizzes.

To add the Add-in Part to a page, do the following actions:

  1. 1. Go to the page, to which you want to add the Add-in;

  2. 2. Enter the Edit mode (click the Edit button Picture 8 in the ribbon);

  3. 3. Go to the Insert tab in the ribbon menu and select App Part:

To have access to the back-end Administration you have to be a member of the Site Owners Groups. If you are not, you will get the following error message:

Picture 456

The name of your group will differ from the one on the image above.

To add yourself to the Site Owners Group do the following:

  1. 1.  Go to Site Settings by clicking Settings icon Picture 476 on the top right corner of your site:

Picture 475

  1. 2. Click People and groups link:

Picture 16

  1. 3. Select the Team Site Owners Group from the left menu and click Team Site Owners Group followed by New and Add Users:


  1. 4. Add the user(s) you want to be able to administer the LMS365 | Quiz Builder Add-in:


By default an email invitation will be sent to the user(s). To disable this function click “Show Options” and uncheck Send an email invitation box.

Picture 43

There may be a delay between adding yourself to the Group and the add-in allowing access. This is normal SharePoint behaviour and outside of our control.


SharePoint Online allows adding Azure AD Group principals as site members. This great ability helps a lot, but there is no out of the box ability to get members of the Azure AD groups. It means that your Azure AD should be configured to trust our add-ins to be able to read members of Azure AD groups.

To give the application permissions to read users data you need to run a powershell script as described in LMS365 | Course Creator & Catalog Add-in Installation Guide.

Picture 12

Running the script requires Tenant Administrator rights.



    1. 1.5. Trial License

The Free Add-in comes with a 30 day trial license included and number of users unlimited. There is no need to obtain a license during the trial period. To get access to the license information, go to the Administration back-end and click License Information tile:
