    Discover Permissions

    What permissions do I need to give someone to use Sims Discover?

    I've looked around everywhere for the answer.

    I have it running fine on my machine and another ladies but all the others I install it on I get a user/password prompt and I'm a little confused.

    The data is protected by normal permissions - not sure about the application; I'll ask.

    SMT or one of the assessments should give you access to Discover, not sure how it details with Windows Trusted logins

    Here's the answer from our desk:

    If they have the Edit/Run permission under "Performance Analysis" and "Performance Analysis > Discover" they will be able to see the Discover icon in SIMS and access the Discover configuration tool.

    In addition, they will require certain permissions to be able to view/access certain graphs and data in Discover, i.e. the data they can see when logged into SIMS .net under the Student-Teacher view (e.g. student, assessment, attendance information etc...) they will be able to see in Discover.

    If they do not have permissions in SIMS and cannot see the icon in SIMS, then they can still access Discover (from the start menu or shortcut), but cannot view the data/graphs.
