Note: All schools will need to reset their group page access with this release. Custom Access for Individual Pages will be set if the section is selected from the "Classes" drop down menu. This feature autosaves.
To reach the setting navigate to:
onCampus > Settings > Group Page Access
Here you will see a tabbed layout, each tab will represent one group type you will set access for. Once you have clicked the Group type you would like to set access for you will notice some new options.
First, you are now able to set access by School Level. This option makes it much easier to set different access for separate school levels within your campus depending on how the group pages are used. You also still have the option to set access for individual classes as well.
Second, the format of how access can be awarded is divided up a bit differently. You will see a simplified version of the different tabs within group pages and be able to award access or keep the content hidden by role. You also have a List only option that allows users to see group pages a user might have but does not allow them to view the page itself.
Last but definitely not least you can now set dates each role will begin to have access to the group page. This is a big help for schools that want to give access to the teachers before giving access to the students and parents. This option allows you to set all your access at once and not have to come back in to add more access at a later date.
To Set Default Access:
- Select the School year and School Level you wish to modify
- Click the +Add Access button
- Check the roles you would like to add access to
- Click Add Access at the bottom
Once the roles have been added you may check the appropriate column for the level of access you would like that constituency to have as well as set the default dates the roles will start to have access.
Group page Options and Default bulletin board layouts have also been separated out into their own tasks. For more information on those please see the articles below.
Note: The Bulletin Board must be enabled for users to see the page. At this time if only Topics, Assignments or Roster is selected, the user will see the page listed but will not be able to click on it.
To Set Custom Access:
- Select Individual [Group Type]. For example: Individual Classes
2. From the [Group Type] drop down to the right of the School Level drop down, select the Section that needs Custom Access:
3. Click the +Add Access button
4. Mark the roles you would like to add access to
5. Click Add Access at the bottom
6. If you wish to remove access for a specific Role, click the red minus (-) sign
Once the roles have been added you may mark the appropriate column for the level of access you would like that constituency to have as well as set the default dates the roles will start to have access.
