Finding the LMS365 Admin Center

There are several ways to get to the LMS365 Admin Center:

1) As an admin, you will find a gear icon at the top-right of a course catalog. Selecting this icon will lead you to the LMS365 Admin Center.




2) You can add the LMS365 Admin Center link to the SharePoint site navigation for quick access.

3) The Microsoft 365 apps launcher allows you to add apps for fast navigation.


Entering the LMS365 Admin Center, you will land on the area where you administer the current course catalog. 




The LMS365 Admin Center toolbar

The LMS365 Admin Center has a toolbar which includes three icons/menu items that are placed to the right at the top of the LMS365 Admin Center. The toolbar includes the following three options:

  • Selecting the speech bubble icon, you can view the feed of messages from the LMS365 Team. The same messages are shown in a banner message at the LMS365 Admin Center. When this banner has been read or closed, the message can be found in the feed.




  • Selecting the bell icon, you will see the feed of activity notifications related to course and training plan administration. When managing courses and training plans, a pop-up message will provide feedback to the admin in the course of the process and, for example, let the admin know that a course has been successfully saved, that learners have been successfully enrolled, etc. These messages can be found in this feed.




  • The question mark icon leads to the LMS365 Help Center.

The Home menu item will take you to the list of courses as well.




The Back to LMS365 menu item on top of the Home menu item will take you back to the course catalog you came from. 

The Help Center menu item will lead you to the LMS365 Help Center where you can find LMS365 documentation and user guides.

LMS365 Admin Center - global settings

As an LMS365 global admin, you can access the global settings that spans all course catalogs from the Global Settings menu item. This menu item will only be available for users with permission to access global settings of LMS365.




To make the link to the Global Settings visible in the LMS365 Admin Center, the Microsoft 365 global administrator must accept the permissions requested by LMS365.


In the LMS365 Global Settings area, you can configure and manage course catalogs as well as global settings like languages, the LMS365 mobile app, LMS365 licenses, LMS administrators, course targeting, learner list columns, internal cost currency, line manager settings, API keys, access to learner details, as well as enable new features in preview mode. 




By default, only the Microsoft 365 global administrator has permissions to access the global settings.

However, it's possible to assign specific people the LMS administrator role, which will grant these people access to the Global Settings of LMS365.
