What is Sharing?
When you have created a page in studentfolio, no one else can see the page until you chose to Share it. The option to Share means you can customise who has access to view your Page.
Permission settings to view a page (or a collection) are as follows:
- Specific individuals (Friends and Users),
- A Group,
- All users with access to studentfolio (Logged-in users),
- Or anyone on the Internet (Public).
There are two places on studentfolio where you can set who has access to view your Pages:
1 - Go directly to 'Shared by me'.
Go to Portfolio > Shared by me.
This is the quickest way to find a page and edit the access rights and if you want to apply the same access rights to multiple pages or a collection in one go.
- This is also the place where you are able to produce a Secret URL for a page.
The Share screen shows you:
a. A list of all of your existing Pages and Collections.
b. The Access list, highlighting which users or groups you have given access to on particular pages or collections.
c The Edit access buttons for each page or collection to change the access rights.
d. The Secret URL buttons for each collection or page to generate a hidden web address.
2 - Share when editing a Page.
The menu link 'Share page' is available when you are editing a page and allows you to set up access permissions while you are already editing the content on a page.
Click this link to take you to the Edit Access screen.
