Academy Dashboard

  • When you first sign-in to the LMN Academy, you will land on the homepage.
  • Based on your subscription type (Free trial, Pro, Pro +) you will have access to certain Learning Plans. i.e. Pro will have access to the Invoice Learning Plan but Basic won’t
  • The goal is to go through each Learning Plan (Settings, Budget, CRM, Item Catalog, Estimate, Time, Schedule, Invoice) so that LMN is implemented successfully within your company
  • Each Learning Plan consists of courses with training material - a lesson on the topic, a demo, and an assignment to complete before moving onto the next course
  • Once a learning plan is complete, then you will receive a badge for that learning plan as well as points that you can use to redeem prizes from the LMN rewards shop
  • A user can start any learning plan as they are not locked - but once you begin a course within that learning plan, you have to complete it before moving onto the next course
  • Use the LMN Help Desk for troubleshooting issues and FAQ’s

For Example:

Learning Plan: Budget
Course: Sales Budget
Training Material:Lesson (video) explaining what a sales budget is and the best practices, Demo (video) showing how to setup the sales budget, Assignment (pdf) of what a user needs to complete in their own account before moving on to the next course

Academy Login Page: Why can’t I login to the Academy?

How do I access the LMN Academy Online?

Simply log into your LMN account and click on Help & Resources > LMN Academy.


This will direct you to the Academy Online (https://academy.golmn.com/learn/signin) where you can click on the sign-in with LMN. Ensure that you have entered your LMN username and password correctly.


Once you have done this, every time you click on the LMN Academy button within LMN, it will automatically log you into the Academy Online. 

**Note: the Academy Online has a 3-hour timeout, if you are logged in for longer, you will need to reenter your username and password to continue training.


What can't I login to the Academy? 

1) Ensure you use the correct Username (this may or MAY NOT be your email address) and Password

2) Login with the "Sign in with LMN" button. 

3) New users that just created their accounts will need to allow 3-4 hours for the Academy to fully register the account and gain access to the Academy.

4) Check with your Super Admin that you are added as an Admin User and not Foreman User.

Foreman Users will not have access to the Academy training videos as they would only use the LMN Time Mobile App to clock in and out of jobs for others and for themselves. They would not need to look into the Academy for invoicing, budgeting and estimating etc training videos.
