Positions help you build an organizational hierarchy into your Intellum account by creating standardized options for admin or students to choose from when creating accounts. As an admin, you can assign positions via user Properties to help build out a structure for user organization.

This article provides an overview of using positions in the platform and walks you through creating a new position.

Access Positions


Positions can be added and defined by unrestricted administrators and are assigned to users via user Properties. Positions can be accessed by clicking on the Positions tab in the left navigation menu.

The Positions list reflects all of the active positions defined in the Platform, listed in alphabetical order.

At the top right of the page are two admin options: New Position and Status. You can toggle between viewing Active or Inactive positions via the Status dropdown.

Create a new position


To create a new position, click the New Position button. The New Position page displays with the following fields:

  • Name - enter the name of the position here
  • Active - check this box to make the position active and available in the system

When you are finished, click Create. You will be directed back to the Positions list where you will see the new position you created.

Edit a position


Clicking on a position title will allow you to edit the Name or Active box in the same way as when you created a new position.

Clicking on a checkbox next to any position name displays three buttons at the top of the page; Edit, Delete, and Deactivate.

Clicking the Edit button allows you to edit the position as described above. Clicking the Delete button will display a confirmation pop-up asking if you are sure you want to delete the selected position - clicking Delete again confirms the deletion. Clicking the Deactivate button inactivates the position so that it cannot be selected for a user.

You can select multiple positions and Delete and Deactivate a group of positions at once, if desired.
