How do I assign a role?

Assign a role to an individual

You can assign any role to one or more learners on your team with a license.

  1. Locate and click on a role.
  2. Click the Assign Role button.
  3. Type the name or email address of the learner you wish to add.
  4. Click the Assign role button to finalize.

This will add the role to that learner's Role IQ page. The learner also receives an email indicating they’ve been assigned to a role.

If using a learner's email address (Step 3, above), it must be the primary email address used for their Skills profile.

To unassign a learner from a role, click the avatar(s) to the right of the Assign Role button and unassign the learner.

Assign a role to a team

You can assign a role to each member of your team all at once. This allows you to add the role faster, and helps make sure nobody gets missed. If new learners are added to the team in the future, they'll automatically be assigned any roles already assigned to the team.

To assign a role to a team, follow the steps above under the "Assign a role to an individual" section. But instead of the individual learner's name (Step 3), enter the team's name. This will add the role to each team member's Role IQ page, and each learner on the team will receive the email notification.

You can unassign individual learners from a role as described above under the "Assign a role to an individual" section. Or you can choose the team name to unassign each member of the team all at once.
