Altora is an all-in-one induction platform that helps you manage and deliver inductions to your contractors, subcontractors, employees and/or workers. Our approach to software focuses on implementing simple-to-use tools that will allow you to manage your inductions, training and compliance with ease. The following guide is a basic overview intended to help you set up your very first induction in four simple steps.
Step 1 – Brand Your System
Under Account Settings, navigate to Appearance and find System Branding. Add your company logo, paying attention to the recommended sizing. You can also change the colour scheme to align with your branding.
Scroll down to the Welcome Screen section, where you can customise the contact information and welcome message, which displays on the end user's login page. Be sure to press Save.
Now access the Notifications tab, choose Custom under New Account Registration Message, where you can type a custom email message for new end user registration emails.
Be sure to press Save Changes.
Step 2 – Edit Content
Altora provides free general induction content to all clients to get you up and running as quickly as possible. Once this content is loaded into your account, you can edit it to be more personalised and reflective of your company. Simply navigate to the Course Editor and click on the name of the course you wish to edit. From here, you can add some new slides, or choose to view, edit or delete any of the current slides.
Once you are happy with the course you have created, navigate to Settings > Tasks Library and click ‘Manage’ Course Properties. From here, you can rename your course and publish it:
Step 3 – Assign Your Course to a Program
In Settings, go to the Program Assignments tab and press "Add Program" or "Add Guided Program" to create a new Program. Choose the course you have just created. You can also add other tasks such as documents and acknowledgements to the program, which we will discuss in greater detail in other articles. For more information about different types of programs, refer to this article.
Step 4 – Go Live!
Depending on if you allow end users to self-assign Programs, you can choose to either have users assign themselves into their own Programs or else assign them when you create their accounts from the Admin view. For more information on user creation, please refer to Inviting Users. Users can access their inductions by email or via a link that you can place on your company’s website.
Congratulations, you have now fully set up Altora!
