Organizational User Sets

Displaying User Sets in the Program Management Block

Links to user sets can be displayed in the top level of the Program Management block. In this scenario the user sets will be shown in the 1st level, user sub-sets would be shown in the 2nd level, etc. This allows all the user sets of an organization to be displayed on one screen. The programs, courses, tracks, and classes that are associated to user sets/user sub-sets will also be shown in the lower lever branches of the menu tree, they can be linked to as well.

To edit these settings go to the Program Management block > Admin > Configuration > Program Administration Block Settings. The settings are described and shown below:
  • Number of entity icons to display before collapsing: A set amount of user sets and programs can be displayed in the Program Management block, this setting must have a value of at least 1. In the image below this is set to 2, so up to 2 organizational user sets and/or programs will be shown in the Program Management block before they automatically collapse. If this was set to one then only the first organizational user set would be shown.
  • Display User Sets as the Top Level: This will display organizational user sets in the first branch of the menu tree in the Program Management block. If this checkbox isn't selected users sets will not be shown in the Program Administration block. The second image below demonstrates this. ACME Corp. and Project Management Level 1 are displayed at the Top Level. User sub-sets of the organizational user sets will be the 2nd level.
  • Display Programs as the Top Level: This works the same as the user sets above. If both programs and user sets are selected, then user sets will be shown before the programs, but both will be in the top level. Programs are not displayed in the top level in these examples.

  2. When the user sub-set is expanded, the associated program is shown
  3. When the program is expanded
  4. Course descriptions of the program are shown
  5. A track associated to the user set is shown, expanding the track will show class instances of the track

Display Priority

The display priority for user sets in the Program Management block can be set with the User Set Display Settings when adding/editing a user set. The user set with the highest number will be displayed at the top of the list, lowest number at the bottom. For example, if there are user sets with display priorities 0-5, 5 will be at the top of the list and 0 will be at the bottom.
