Roles & Personas

Roles control which tasks users can access. Roles can also be used as a communication tool to share information with a group of users. A user's personas are based on their enrollment and roles. Personas are also tied to past roles. For example, a user with the "Past teacher" role maintains the "Faculty" persona.

Platform managers can manage roles and add additional roles. To add/remove a persona from a user, edit the user's roles and/or enrollment.

Constituent personas and solution capabilities automatically group tasks for quick access.

  • Constituent Persona: Parent, Faculty, Alum, Student and Friend.

  • Capabilities (formerly "products" or "applications"): Academics, Enrollment managements, Extracurricular, School website, Core.

Note: The persona and capability names are hard-coded into the system, and cannot be edited.
