Populating the import file with TRUE for a manager will automatically assign the Manager role to an employee. This allows additional access to the system, such as, being able to assign Courses or Performance Reviews. A manager is only able to do this for their direct reports. If an employee should not be assigned the Manager role, the column details should equal FALSE.

The LMS Administrator role allows users to manage the LMS components of the system without having access to the Account set-up screens.

Restricted LMS Admin role (custom role permission):
