Firefly 6

Setting site permissions

Set the site permissions that define who can log into Firefly. Follow our guidelines to make the most of Firefly's page visibility view, and give you most flexibility as your use of Firefly develops. 

  1. Open the Control Panel.
  2. Select Modify this site or Modify Site > Your site.
  3. Choose the Permissions tab.
  4. Set the group(s) that you would like to be able to log in for access to your site.

It's highly recommended that you choose Select multiple groups or people and then add the significant groups that you would like to have access. In most cases, this will be something like TeachersStudentsParents.

The permissions that are set at the site level will be "inherited" by any sub-section or page unless "inherit" has been removed. It's worth checking the permissions settings for any Staff section and using View site as... to check that access is as you expect. Please contact support if you require any further advice.

When teachers edit their pages they'll be able to see at a glance who the page is visible to.

It's then very simple for each teacher to remove or add visibility for their pages .
