SSC Campus - Product Releases: Categories Permission
As part of recent updates to he platform, we've added a permission to determine who can view categories, as well as a new History feed on the student profile that displays all interactions in chronological order. The Alternate ID field view and the Advising Summary Report API were also recently released. Please read on for more details.
New: Categories Permission
This feature allows application administrators to specify which users may view Categories in the search results and the student profile page. To allow users to view Categories, navigate to the User Roles area of the administration page, and edit the desired user role. This new permission will default to OFF, so application administrators must turn it on for any roles that will need this permission. Under Student Info and Reporting, click on View Categories for Students.
Note: this will hide category information from search criteria, search results and export in the search if the user does not have the permission to view category info. It will do the same for all the reports where Categories is a field. It will also hide category information on the student profile page. But there are still some places in the application where it is not hidden. These include: Travel Letters, Book Slips, Emails and Attendance Tracking.
