Best performance practices
There are no limits from the LMS365 side but due to SharePoint limitations, the maximum number of separate enrollments per course is 5 000 users. For more information, read about the service limits in SharePoint for Microsoft 365.
To enable the creation of courses and training plans, which are built on SharePoint subsites, the creation of SharePoint subsites must be enabled for your Microsoft 365 tenant.
This setting is applied from the Microsoft 365 Admin Center > SharePoint > Classic settings page > and under the Subsite Creation section, Enable subsite creation for all sites has to be selected. Please find more details in Microsoft's documentation.

Installation of the LMS365 app
IMPORTANT: For tenancies that are on US Government Cloud the installation procedure is the same except for the location of the installer URL. This URL will only be disclosed upon installation with an LMS365 Representative. After the LMS365 installation process is done, and the first Course Catalog is created, the LMS365 App with all the tools included into it will automatically be added to the App Catalog. You can watch video tutorial to get started with the LMS365 installation process as well as follow the instructions described in this section.
To start working with LMS365, please make sure that the following prerequisites are met:
- SharePoint is installed.
- The App Catalog site is created. For detailed information on how it is done, please consult Step 1 of the following article - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/use-app-catalog
- You have at least “Owners” permissions to the App Catalog and at least “Read” permission to the SharePoint root site collection.
Then, please follow the steps below:
TIP: This step is not applicable to Government Cloud tenancies. Please reach out to your LMS365 Account Manager for further details.
b. Sign in under your Microsoft 365 Global Administrator account.
2. Click Get it now and accept the requested permissions:
Applications marked as publisher verified - a blue “verified” badge - means that the publisher has verified their identity using a Microsoft Partner Network account that has completed the verification process and has associated this MPN account with their application registration.
NOTE: You can find details about the permissions for the App Authorization in our Trust Center.
LMS365 will install classic access LMS365 App to the Course Catalog site automatically. This App is used for correct work of the LMS365 App, e.g., gives permissions to manage course sites, upload documents to Learning Module, Quiz, etc.
3. After that, you will be suggested to install LMS365 on your Tenant and start Tenant provisioning:
4. Select necessary Region for your Tenant:
5. Click Next. You will be presented with the page where you can confirm the Tenant Region or go back to select another one.
IMPORTANT: Remember the selected Region cannot be changed on your own initiative (only by request).
If the App Catalog has been recently created, it may take up to 20 minutes to get the App Catalog available for deploying new packages. After that, you will see the following screen. It means that the provisioning has already started.
TIP: If the user did not create the App Catalog, there will be a page with message notifying that the verification has failed.
Follow the instruction and after that return and refresh the page to continue the installation process.
The process of provisioning will typically take some minutes, after that you will be presented with the following screen:
6. Before starting to use the LMS365 App, you will be required to activate the license.
We strongly recommend activating the license (at least the trial version) before you start working with LMS365 in order not to experience issues with the tools that will not be working before the license is activated.
