How do I assign a license to a user?

In order for a learner (employee) to take a course or courses, they must first be assigned a license containing that course (e.g. Metalforming - Annual license). Licenses are considered consumed once you have assigned them to a user and enrolled that user in courses that are part of that license. You can track license consumption from the Licenses page.

‚ÄčTo assign a license to a user:
  1. Log in to the system (https://pma.metalformedu.org/login/index.php).
  2. Click License Management  in the left nav. The Licenses page displays by default.


  3. Click the Manage Licenses  icon to the right of the license you wish to assign. The License Details page displays. 


  4. Click the   button. The License Enrollment page displays.


  5. Click Add and select a specific user or users to which you wish to assign the license. Then click Submit.

  6. To assign the license to a specific user or users, start typing the name of the user in the Select User drop-down.

    Or, click the down carat to see all users in your organization.
     
    Alternatively, if you wish to assign the license to all users in your company, click the Select all Users checkbox. 
  7. Click on a user to select them. The user's name will be added above the drop-down (click the x next to the user if you wish to de-select them).
