Facility ePortal User Groups
I'm trying to setup a new user group in eportal to give a small number of teaching staff access to all assessments and registers but I'm finding the group and account hierarchy in eportal a bit confusing.
Could anyone explain how to do this, or failing that just give me a clear overview of how the actual users and the default users and user groups all fit together?

You can create a login-type here and then define the user-rights below to say if they can go into assessment, etc.
I never really had much luck with the settings in Controller, but tried not to play with it much as it often caused it to fall over playing with those settings.
I might have a nose around tomorrow if nobody else gives any thoughts by then.

Ok, thanks Chris.

I can't promise I can help personally, I do have limited knowledge, but I know about ePortal and the groups you speak of. I'm happy to help, if you send me a PM with your details, so I can speak privately about this, with it being security related. That way I can check who you are, and discuss ways of changing this wihtout it being in such a public forum.
