Once you’ve created a course in your Docebo LMS, you can then configure the course management settings. Begin by accessing the Admin Menu from the gear icon in the top right corner of your platform. Then, select the Courses option in the E-Learning section. On the main Course Management page, find the course you want to manage in the list of courses and press the menu icon at the end of the course’s row.

Then, press the Training Material item from the dropdown menu. In the course’s Training Material page, you will see the available actions can be started using the buttons in the action bar at the top of the page: add and manage training resources (Training material button), enroll users (Enrollments button), create and analyze reports (Reports button), manage settings (Settings button), edit course properties (Course Properties button) and access the learner view (Learner View button). Let’s take a quick look at the operations you can perform in the Course Management Menu.

  • Statistics section regarding course accesses
  • Users statistics
  • Learning object statistics



In this area you will be able to manage course options: details, catalog options, e-commerce, time options, certificates, player background, etc. Learn more about course settings.
