How do I find a group to add to a program?

Once groups are created on the Groups page, you can find groups to add to your program.

Any groups added to your program automatically display all the group users in the Learners tab. If a user was added to a program through a group, the only way to remove the user is to edit the user's group or remove the entire group from the program.


  • Adding a group to your program automatically creates course due dates for users in the program (based on the first course in the program).
  • Some features may be restricted based on permissions for your user role.
