Limit access to learners' learning progress details for course admins and line managers

Introduction

LMS365 (Learn365) strives to ensure that customers have the relevant means to control privacy within their learning management solution with regards to personal information that can be perceived as sensitive in some organizational contexts.

This article will describe how to restrict the access to learners' learning progress details in LMS365 (Learn365) for course admins and line managers, the information that will be hidden when access is restricted, and the impacts on the progress dashboards and reports when access is restricted.

 

Limit access to learner details 

Required roles: LMS admin, Microsoft 365 global admin, SharePoint admin.

When Access to Full Learner Details for Course Administrators is disabled, course admins won't be able to track a learner's number of attempts, score, and time spent.

Course admins don't have access to full learner details

Hidden details

When the Access to Full Learner Details for Course Administrators toggle is off, course admins won't have access to specific learners' progress information:

  • On course and training plan progress dashboards and reports, the Score column won't be displayed.

  • On the course progress dashboard, when selecting Delete attempt for a learning item, the opened window won't display the total attempts count or the previous status of an attempt.

  • Progress dashboards and reports that display learners' progress for content packages won't display the score, scale, average time, and the number of attempts, and the View learner's attempt action link will be disabled.

  • Progress dashboards and reports that display learners' progress for quizzes won't display the score, time spent, number of attempts, and the average time. The Actions column isn't displayed either so course admins can't view learner's answers or delete attempts.

  • On the question statistics page, there'll be no list of learners who answered the questions, total answers for each learner on each question, or correct and incorrect percentage of answers for each learner for each question.

  • Dashboards and reports that display learners' progress for learning modules won't display the following details: score, average time, and number of attempts.

In the next section, we describe each area of learners' progress dashboards and reports affected when the Access to Full Learner Details for Course Administrators option is disabled.
