Note: The pink section of this article applies specifically to portals that have upgraded to the New Learner Experience.
System Administrators in Absorb have the ability to change certain settings at a portal wide level.
The following are the settings that are available to System Admins:
Main Contact Information ( ex: LMS and Company Name, Contact email, address etc)
BCC Email: This email will get copied on all system emails
Enable Google Calendar Session Emails: Enable the ability to include links to create Google Calendar events in Session enrollment emails
Enable Offline Player App: Click here to read more about this app
Google Analytics: Enter your google analytics ID to track visits to your LMS
Enable New Learner Experience For All Learners: Turning this on will redirect learners to the New Learner Experience rather than displaying the existing learner interface
Force New Learner Password Change: Force learners to change their password on first login
Mandatory Course: All learners must complete this course before accessing the rest of the LMS.
Require First Use Terms & Conditions: Force learners to accept terms and conditions on first login after setting terms and conditions. Note: In the New Learner Experience this option is gone from Portal Settings and can instead be set via Settings under Manage Templates.
New Users Are Required To Validate Their Email: Learners who sign up using an enrollment key are unable to login until they validate their email address
