Post-Install Configuration 

Permission Sets

Unfortunately, Salesforce doesn't allow us to transfer application access rights during the installation.
That is why you will need to create 2 simple permission sets to give access to you users. 
One permission set for the authors and one for your learners.

But before, let's take a look at the permission sets that were created with the installation of Impact LMS

Impact LMS Administrator
This permission set allows you to see and edit all the content in Impact LMS. It also gives the right to access the Impact admin Setting tab.
If you are the Salesforce Administrator, you don't need this permission set

Assign this permission set to your Impact LMS administrator

Impact LMS Author
The Impact LMS Author permission set give access to create books, libraries, specialities and topic. With this permission set, the user will be able to create all of the above, but doesn't have the permission to view or edit content produced by other users.

Assign this permission set to content producers/authors

Impact LMS Learner
The Impact LMS Learner permission set gives access to view courses that have shared with the user.  

Assign this permission set to your students/learners

As mentioned before, we need to create 2 new permission sets to give access to the Impact LMS applications (Impact Composer and Impact Learn)  to you users.
One permission set will be for the authors and the other one for your learners.

Let's create a permission sets for the authors. 

1) In Salesforce, go to setup/Administer/Permission Sets

2) Click 'New'
Enter a name such as 'Impact LMS Author Access'  and click save.
We recommend letting the User License field blanc (None)

3) Click on Assign Apps and then, click the edit button


4) Select the following applications (ilms.Impact Composer, ilms.Impact LMS, ilms.Learn) and click save

6) The permission sets are now created, assign them to your Impact LMS Users.



Don't forget, your users will need two permission sets to use the application. The one we just created and one of the permission set mentioned above.
