Permissions and roles

To complete the procedures in this article, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. This often excludes Students and TAs by default. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles.

For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles.


[edit] Adding participants

In your site, from the menubar, click Site Info.

Click Add Participants.

For participants with official usernames, under "Other Official Participants", type the participant's username. If you wish to add more than one participant, enter each username on a separate line. For participants without official usernames, under "Non-official Participants", enter their email addresses, one per line.

Under "Participant Roles", choose whether to give all your newly added participants the same role or different roles; for more about roles, see Participant roles. Click Continue.

Choose the roles for the participant(s) you are adding. If you're assigning different roles to participants, use the drop-down list next to each name to select the appropriate role. If you're assigning the same role to all the participants you're adding, use the radio buttons to select the appropriate role. Click Continue. Note: Depending on your's site's configuration, roles may vary.

On the next page, you have the option to automatically send email to the new participants, notifying them of the site's availability. Select the appropriate radio button, and then click Continue.

Confirm that the information for the participant(s) you're adding is correct, and then click Finish.

[edit] Editing participants

In your site, from the menubar, click Site Info.

In the Participant List, you can change a participant's role using the drop-down list under "Role".

Under "Status", you can use the drop-down list to change a participant's status; choose Active or Inactive. An inactive student remains a member of the site, but no longer has access. (You can use this to exclude students from a site who would otherwise have access through an associated classlist, and therefore cannot be removed.)

Click Update Participants.

[edit] Removing participants

In your site, from the menubar, click Site Info.

In the Participant List, under "Remove", check the box next to each participant whom you would like to remove.

Click Update Participants.
