LMS Filters: Blackboard

The LMS Filters allow you, the IntelliBoard Admin (main subscriber), to choose how Users, Courses, and Activities are visible in your account. Teacher and Learner Roles allow you to assign LMS roles for Teachers and Learners in your connection that will be applied for you and your IB Users.

To reach these settings, click on the dropdown menu in the top bar to see the list of all of your connections and then on Manage Connections. Once the new page opens up, click on the menu under Actions and then on Filters.

How to appy the filters

If a connection is created and after some time the user sets filters for the connection, the data which has been in the reports before will not be filtered; only new data will be filtered after the filters have been set. In order to filter all the data in the report, the user has to Generate Migration Files.
