Adding Roles
 

As an Admin, you may wish to delegate a limited set of permissions to Sub-admin. This is accomplished by creating a role and then assigning the newly created role to a user who then becomes a Sub-admin. You can also specify the STORAGE QUOTA (maximum amount of storage allowed) for each role.
 

To add a role:
 

  1. Using your preferred web browser, navigate to the URL for your Apporto system (e.g. mycollege.apporto.com) and log in to the system using your Admin credentials.
     
  2. Click the Roles  icon in the Navigation panel.
  • The Roles screen displays.

  

  • The screen shows a listing of all currently defined roles for your Apporto system.
     

      3. Click the New button.

  • The Add Apporto Role dialog displays.

  

      4. Enter the values for the new role:

    NOTE: “Mandatory” fields are identified by a red asterisk (*).

  • Enter a name for the role in the Role name text box.
     
  • Select the Group(s) the role will have permissions for.
     
    • To assign the role to a single group, click the desired group. The selected group is highlighted.
       
    • To assign the role to multiple groups, press and hold the Ctrl key (Windows OS) or Cmd key (Mac OS), then click each desired group. The selected groups are highlighted. When all desired groups have been selected, release the Ctrl key (Windows OS) or Cmd key (Mac OS).
       
  • Select the App(s) the role will have permissions for.
     
    • To assign the role to a single app, click the desired app. The selected app is highlighted.
       
    • To assign the role to multiple apps, press and hold the Ctrl key (Windows OS) or Cmd key (Mac OS), then click each desired app. The selected apps are highlighted. When all desired apps have been selected, release the Ctrl key (Windows OS) or Cmd key (Mac OS).
       

      5. Click the Add role button to add the new role.
 

  • A confirmation message shows at the top of the screen when the role has been successfully added to the database.
     

      6. The role is now available for assignment to the desired user(s).
 

To add or edit a STORAGE QUOTA:
 

  • Click the STORAGE QUOTA field for the desired role to place the cursor in the field.
     
  • Enter or edit the maximum amount of storage allowed (in megabytes; 30 maximum) for the role.
     
  • Click the cursor outside the STORAGE QUOTA field to complete the update.
     
    • A confirmation message shows at the top of the screen.
