Capabilities

Capabilities give users the right to perform specific tasks in the software. Capabilities are sometimes known as rights, access, and/or privileges.

Some capabilities affect all products. Other capabilities are specific to certain products. English in a Flash does not have any unique capabilities.

The information provided below refers to default capabilities and should be regarded as general information, because your administrator may have customized (changed) the capabilities assigned to you.

How to Find Your Capabilities

Ask your administrator; he or she may have customized (changed) the capabilities assigned to you.

How to Change Your Capabilities

There are two ways to change the capabilities you are using.

  • Your administrator can change the capabilities assigned to you; you cannot do this on your own.
  • If you have more than one role in the software, or if you are assigned to more than one location, at the top of the Home page, click your name, then choose the Change Role option to choose a different role or school. The role that you choose can determine which features are available to you.

User Groups

Most often, the capabilities you have depend on which of the seven user groups you belong to.

Each user group has certain capabilities assigned to it by default, but these defaults can be changed. The user group that you belong to is determined by your assigned position in the software.
