Roles and Permissions
Before going too far in to the technical parts of Thinkific, it's helpful to understand that there are different permission levels which vary across Thinkific plans. These permission levels will restrict how much of the platform your team can view and change - you will want to assign your team members roles that have permission levels aligned with the level of control they will need for their day to day jobs.
To get a better oversight on account roles, check out our article Site Owner and User Roles.
Check out Getting Started with Thinkific for a great overview of the platform, including a quick demo video. Even if you are using external landing pages, or have a customized theme, it's helpful for your team to understand what is available out of the box, and give context to how you've built your site.
After learning about the creator side of the platform, it's also a good idea to learn a bit about the experience you provide to your students.
