Permission is the action of officially allowing someone to do a particular thing; consent or authorization. The prodigy platform gives schools the flexibility of creating a permission category based on what a user should have access to on the school portal. The privileges assigned under the permission category should reflect the role of the user.

Every standard school has categories of members of the staff with different duties assigned to them. The success of a school depends on how well every member of the staff understands his or her roles or duties and how totally committed they are to discharge their duties.

The following are steps to creating a permission category:

A. Creating Permission Category

Step 1:

Log in to the school portal and then navigate to Administrative on the main menu.

Step 2:

Click Users, a menu under Administrative.

Step 3:

Click Permission Category, a submenu of Users.

Step 4:

Click the ADD CATEGORY button in the top right corner of the page.

Note Categories, in this case, could be, for example, are The Director, Principal, Vice Principal, Head of Department, Front Desk Officer, Teacher, Class Teacher, Accountant, etc.

Step 5:

Click Save.

Note: Repeat Step 3 for every category to be created.


B. Assigning Privileges To The Permission Category Created

Take Steps 1 to 5 if a permission category has not been created.

Step 6:

Click the VIEW PRIVILEGES button attached to the permission category created.

Step 7:

From the tables of modules and sub-modules, choose or enable ONLY the privileges associated/related to the permission category.

For example, the following modules (and all or some sub-modules under them) should be enabled for the staff members who are Class Teachers:

  • Dashboard, Message, Student, Class, Attendance, Result, Timetable, Curriculum, Virtual Class, Meeting, and Account. 

However, it is advisable to enable ONLY the SUB-MODULES that are necessary within the capacity of the staff as a class teacher. For example, a class teacher has nothing to do with the following sub-modules of RESULT:

  • Result Setting
  • Cumulative Result
  • Result Access

Step 8:

Click the Save button.
