Coursedog allows institutions to set a variety of permissions by assigning roles to their users, differentiating between an admin that can edit the catalog directly and faculty that can only request changes to pages of the catalog.
There are several delivered user roles in Online Catalogs that you can select from, though you may choose to design and add a new role if one is needed.
On your dashboard, navigate to Catalog > Settings > Roles.
Changing Role Permissions
You can view and edit permissions by clicking on the toggle next to each role name.
All permissions include “Allow” and “Deny” options.
Some permissions also have an “Allow If” option, which is followed by a condition that must be met in order for a user with that role to have access to the listed functionality.
Adding a Role
If your institution needs to add a new role, you can do so by selecting +ADD ROLE under the Roles tab. Each configurable role allows or limits editing access to Coursedog functionality across the platform in each of the modules.
The modules include:
Committees In Catalog Settings
Catalog settings have committees available; this is for admins to create catalog-specific committees.
There is some hard-coded logic in Online Catalog that is tied to prebuilt roles.
Roles Visible Only to Coursedog Users
The instructor, student and Coursedog roles are non-editable (invisible) to anyone who doesn’t have the Coursedog role.
Unless the user has the Coursedog role, they will be unable to see these roles and configure their permissions in Settings > Roles.
If you wish to change any related configurations and don’t have the Coursedog role, please reach out to your Coursedog Customer Success representative.
