Site Administrators can assign granular permissions for users based on the standards/requirements the user is asked to edit. There are two ways to assign permission levels.

 

Per User

*Note: Only Site Administrators can assign permissions using this process.

  1. Go to the Options > Manage Site > Users page.
  2. Click on the username of the person you would like to edit permissions for.
  3. Click on the “Permissions” tab in the upper-right corner, of the user profile.
  4. Permissions are organized, first, by accrediting body. You will see a bar labeled with the acronym of the college/division in your site. Click on the “+” to expand the section.
  5. Within the college/division, there will be a list of Collections. For example, in the Academic Programs division, you will see a list of programs at your institution. Click on the “+” to expand the collection.
  6. Within each collection, there will be a section to assign permissions for the Document Directory tab. You may choose to check just one or two, or all three.
    • Add Files: A user can upload files to the tab.
    • Modify Files: A user can rename, replace, or move files from folder to folder.
    • Delete Files: A user can delete files from the tab (if not referenced in any requirements).
  1. If any Page Libraries are located in your Collection, you can assign a user to have Edit, View, or No Access.
  2. In the Reports section, you will the reports located in the section. Click the “+” to expand the report and see all standards.
  3. You can click “Auto-Select” to fill in all standards with the same permission level, or you can use the drop-down menu on each, individual standard to assign that user a permission level.
    • No Access: Cannot read or edit the standard.
    • Reviewer: Read-only access to the standard.
    • Contributor: Editing access to non-administrative fields (number, title, description, judgment).
    • Administrator: Full editing access to all fields within the standard. Ability to assign permissions per standard.
