This task allows the Platform Manager to enable additional relationship types (i.e. Grandparent/Grandchild) used in the profile to tie related users together. The activated relationship types appear in a drop-down list box when you add a relationship for a user. To activate relationship types:
  1. From the persona menu, select Core.
  2. Select Users > User profile settings.
  3. Click Relationship Types.
  4. Click Edit in the upper right-hand corner.
  5. Check the Active checkbox for the relationship types you would like to enable.
  6. Some relationship types have the parental access and list as parent options. If checked, these options will be selected by default when adding a new relationship of that type. However, this setting can be overridden when adding a relationship.
    • Parent Access: users that have parental access have the ability to view information as a parent would. For example, a grandparent can login to the community and have access to their grandchild's courses, assignments, etc. just as a parent would. 
    • List as Parent: when this option is selected, users appear in reports and lists that show parent information. For information, when printing mailing labels for parents, a grandparent who was listed as parent would be included in the list.
  7. Click Save.
