What is Event Management?

Event Management is a permission setting allowing non-admin users to be able to manage and create events. When not enabled, only admins have the ability to manage events.

Event Permissions Criterion

Similar to People Management and Content Ownership, there are a variety of options to choose from:

  • No event management rights

    When selected users cannot create, edit, or be named instructors of any events. This leaves all event management up to admins. 

  • Can be named an instructor of an event

    When enabled, users can be instructors on events. 

    Users can also manage the events they are instructors of. They cannot manage or edit any other events or create new events.

  • Can create and manage all events in the system

    When selected users can create, access, and manage all events, regardless of whether they are selected as the instructor on the event.

Important Note

Event archives do not have separate permissions.

To enable a user to view archived events, they need access to People and/or Content archives.

Editing the Instructor of an Event

When editing the instructor of an event, Lessonly provides a warning message confirming the change and allowing the user to check whether or not to notify the attendants of this change.

Important Note

If the user updating the event is the instructor, and they are not an admin once the change takes place (dependent on permissions), they will not not able to access the event again after the update.
