Spark can help you arrange and group your users with the Company Structure allows you to maintain the hierarchy within the organisation. E.g. you may want to divide the company structure into regions, areas, departments etc. This hierarchy can be as complex as you like.
The functionality to adjust the organisational structure might not be enabled, please contact Sponge Support.
Within the "Settings" tab, click on "Company Structure" under "General".
This will show the Company structure layout view, allowing you to make changes and update it. By default, the top level of the structure will already be in place. Each component of the structure is called an Organisational Unit.
IMPORTANT: Once you create a level in the structure, you cannot delete it.
From here you can create your company structure, or if it has been created you are able to view it. You can select the arrow to the right of the Parent to view all Organisational unit associated with it.
The Organisation units setup is displayed to the right of the screen. You can select 'Edit' to update these parameters.
These are the managers on the LMS with permissions associated with this Organisational unit.
Your welcome message can be set to the default message or you can change it per structural unit. You may choose not to include a message at all.
This is the message trainees will read when they click the Help tab.
You are able to nominate an email address - usually, someone from the client’s company who receives all user replies to system generated emails.
If no instruction is set, the hierarchical structure will automatically clone the instruction above. For example, as no instruction was set for branding for ‘BOLT team’, it will automatically inherit the instruction set from ‘BOLT Showcase’.
Your branding can be set to your default branding or can be set per structural unit. Branding is created by Sponge Learning. Please contact Sponge Support if you require any assistance with this.
