ELIS Administration Menu

ELIS Dynamic Administration Menu:
ELIS has a dynamic 'tree' menu that enables our users to navigate their Programs or organizational structure in one menu. Programs can be complex; this menu is designed to make it easier to see the structure of a program, and to make it easier to navigate directly to the part of the program you wish to view or edit.

The ELIS Administration Menu with user sets at the top level is shown in the following image.
  1. A top level user set
  2. User sub-set of the organizational user set
  3. A program called Project Management is associated to the Project Management user sub-set of the top level user set ACME Corporation.

The menu can be set to show programs and/or organizational user sets at the top level. Which you will prefer will depend on how you use ELIS. Many organizations want to set up a reporting and/or functional hierarchy, for instance user sets who's reports need to be seen by a regional quality control manager might setup a user set structure to facilitate that and display that structure at the top level.

A company might setup user sets and user sub-sets to match their regional and departmental structure, and want to view that structure at the top level.

Likewise, a content provider selling programs, may want programs at the top level, and have an easy way to see what organizations have purchased which programs.

Ordering items in the ELIS Administration Menu:

You can control the order in which items appear in the Dynamic Menu by using display settings.

Programs can be arranged using the Display Priority setting in the program Editing screen. This setting can be used to control the order that programs are displayed in the ELIS Administration block.
Program display priority

Programs with lower numbered Display Priority show up first (from the top) in the Dynamic Menu (if several Programs share the same priority, then they are displayed alphabetically).

When there are several courses in a Program, they show up in the order that is set in their Position setting. Course Description Position can be viewed/edited in the Course Descriptions tab of the program editing screen.

User set Display Priority:

When Organizational user sets are displayed at the top level of the ELIS Administration Menu, their order can be managed via the User Set Display priority setting in the User Set editing screen:

The User Sets are shown in the order set by their display priorities, with higher numbers shown before lower numbers. For example, a display priority of 2 will be shown before a display priority of 1.
