Actions to take before assigning seats

There are a couple of steps you should take before assigning the Manager Accelerator training to participants.

  1. Make sure that all Manager Accelerator training participants have been added to 15Five.
  2. Send an email to all participants using our Kick Off Email Template. This email will inform participants of their involvement in the Manager Accelerator course and give them important details and context.

Assign participants

For a person to take part in the Manager Accelerator training, you must grant Manager Accelerator permission to them in 15Five, then assign a seat to them in the Engage Portal. This section walks through how to do so.

Grant permission in 15Five

  1. Click on the settings gear in the top, right-hand corner of your 15Five account.
  2. Select 'People' from the dropdown menu.
  3. You're now on the 'Manage people' page. From here, find the person you want to assign a seat to and click their name to open their account settings.
  4. Scroll down the the "Permissions" section of the individual's settings page, then check the box next to the online, hybrid, or live option.
  5. Click Save. The currently available seats count will immediately update to reflect the new availability.
  6. If the participant is already active in 15Five, assigning them a seat will trigger an automated email from 15Five Transform ( confirming that they have access to Manager Accelerator and giving them a link to access the course. If the participant is in a created state, they will be notified when they are invited to 15Five.
