Contact the helpdesk if you have responsibility for monitoring training compliance for your unit and need more access to training records. 

Adding or Removing Learning Tracks

Learning track assignments indicate required training for a person's current job duties or roles. Tracks must be assigned in order to run accurate compliance reports and to trigger overdue/expiration notifications. Tracks can be added or removed to a person at any time, without affecting that person's training history. 


Option 1: Find Track, Then Add/Remove 1 or More People

Impersonate a User

The impersonate tool is useful to quickly check on a single person's compliance status or a PI/manager's team status. 

Manager Menu > Impersonate

Your activities in the system are tracked including the ID of any user that you impersonate. If you enter a netID and nothing happens, check to make sure pop-ups are enabled.

The Manager Resources page includes a 2 minute video overview and PDF to assist you in checking training compliance for a specific manager's team.


View Your Own Subordinates Only

Those with the Compliance Admin security role automatically see all additional users as required in addition to your own subordinates. To add or remove tracks or to check on your team's training status, you have a few options:

  • Search and go into each person's record from the People screen or from the Track Manager.
  • Wait for the weekly email report which includes all your direct reports who have overdue or expired training or who have training due within the week.
  • Use a report that selects your specific Flexi-groups (Direct and Ad Hoc if you have them).
