Changing Permissions

All site participants can complete forms in Resources for use in portfolios, matrices, and wizards. However, permissions to create, change, delete, export, and publish forms by using the Forms tool can be restricted by role. To assign permissions, access the Forms tool and follow these steps:

  1. If the Forms menu bar is not displayed, click the Reset button.
  2. Click the Permissions button on the menu bar. Sakai displays the Permissions screen.
  3. Referring to the table below, check boxes to select the appropriate permissions for users in each role.

    Permission Description
    create Users in this role may create and import forms for use by themselves and/or site participants.
    edit Users in this role may change the name and instructions for forms.
    export Users in this role may export a form to their desktops as a compressed file.
    delete Users in this role may delete forms.
    publish Users in this role may publish forms for use by site participants. Users in this role may suggest a form for global publication (that is, publication across all sites within a CLE).

  4. To save the permissions settings, click Save. Sakai saves the settings and displays the Forms home page. Or, to return to that screen without saving your changes, click Cancel.
