Adjust Page Category Permissions
Once Page Categories are created in Admin Plus, further configuration can be done using object permissions.
Object permissions allow an institution to give individual users or groups of users the ability to view, edit, and/or delete Page Categories.
Example Use: An institution may enable the counseling department to edit all pages under the “Counseling Services” Page Category. Students may only have permission to view this Page Category, and the Pages that fall beneath it.
Example Use: An institution may enable only faculty to view the Pages within the “Faculty” Page Category, as students do not need access to faculty forms and handbooks.
Example Use: A student worker may be given editing access to all Page Categories, so they can update Page content as part of their job duties.
Adjust Page Permissions
Once a page has been created, further configuration can be done in Admin Plus. Page object permissions allow an institution to give individual users or groups of users the ability to view, edit, and/or delete pages.
Example Use: A “Technical Resources” Page may be viewable by all, but only a staff member in the IT department has permission to edit content on the page.
Example Use: A Page for graduates may only be viewable to graduating students and faculty.
Example Use: A Page featuring housing information may be hidden from commuters, and only edited by staff.
