Posted: 14:28:46, Wednesday, Oct 2, 2019 Expiration: 14:28:46, Wednesday, Oct 9, 2019
The Fixed/Flexible, Roles & Permissions, and Processes (“FFRPP”) permission changes.
The following changes have been made to Canvas permissions in response to approved change requests.
- Support Admin and Reporting Admin roles have been deployed to the Continuing Education and Training and Development instances.
- Sub Account Admin has been renamed to Institutional Admin to provide better alignment with the Instructional instance.
- Sub Account Admin (Now Institution Admin) was granted the following additional permissions; view all grades, Conversations - send messages to entire class, Quizzes - view submission logs, sis data read. This was done to allow the admin to enroll users as support & reporting admin, as well as provide better permission parity with the instructional instance. This also addresses the open request for admins to have grade access on CE and TD.
- Continuing Education account users have been granted the permission to change their name. This does not apply to users using institutional netID's. More information on how a user can change their name can be found at; https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10614
