Important Changes

  • Read-Only Calendar Rights Now Available and All Calendars Checkbox Removed (SIS-108612) [Enhancement]

    Administrators now have the ability to grant all schools and all calendars read-only Calendar Rights within Campus.

    This means users can now be granted the ability to select 'All Schools' and 'All Calendars' within the Campus Toolbar and have read-only data access within all tools for which they have tool rights assigned (including any reports within Campus).To streamline calendar rights and offer additional functionality, all calendar rights are now exclusively set on the Calendar Rights tab.

    This means the All Calendars checkbox has been removed from the User Account tab.For State Edition Users, the District field has also been removed from the User Account tab and 'All District' rights are now managed on the Calendar Rights tab.NOTE: For all district users who had the All Calendars checkbox marked on the User Account tab, they have been converted to a member of the CampusAllCalsModifyRights user group.

    This user group enables the same rights within Campus that were previously granted via the All Calendars checkbox.For State Edition users who had the All Calendars checkbox marked on the User Account tab, they have been converted to a member of the CampusAllCalsModifyRightsDistrict-district number user group. This user group enables the same rights within Campus that were previously granted via the All Calendars checkbox.

    For State Edition users who had the All Calendars checkbox marked and 'All Districts' set on the User Account tab, they have been converted to a member of the CampusAllCalsModifyRightsAllDistricts user group. This user group enables the same rights within Campus that were previously granted via the All Calendars checkbox and a District Field set to 'All Districts'.

    Users who already have Calendars Rights set to a School value of 'All Schools', Calendar value of 'All Calendars', Year value set to 'All Years', and the Modify Rights checkbox unchecked, they will have the same access as before but can now select 'All Schools' and 'All Calendars' within the Campus Toolbar and properly run reports and searches across all calendars.For more information, please see the Read-Only Calendar Rights Now Available and All Calendars Checkbox Removed notification as well as the Calendar Rights (User) and Calendar Rights (User Group) articles on the Campus Community.

Districts who have already enabled Campus Student have enabled Campus Parent by default. Parents can access Campus Parent by clicking the green "Try the New Campus Parent Portal" button at the top of the Portal.
