SSC Campus - Product Releases: Alternate ID Field View

New: Alternate ID Field View

This feature added a new permission to control display and access to the Alternate ID on the Student Profile.

The new permission will default to ON for GradesFirst (GF) members for roles that have the View the Student ID on the Student Profile permission enabled, and to OFF for Campus members.  This is to minimize disruption for GF members who are used to seeing alternate ID.

Please note that because this is a permission, it will be enabled for all super users (Campus and GradesFirst) just like all other permissions.  Note: Alternate ID does not have a separate search field, but is pat of the keyword search.
