Capabilities in Renaissance Place

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

What determines which capabilities you have? When you were added to the Renaissance Place software, your position in the school or school network was selected (such as teacher, school secretary, deputy head teacher, etc.). In Renaissance Place, each position is part of a user group, and the capabilities that most users have is based on the user group they belong to.

For students, you do not select a position when you add them - they are automatically placed in the "students" group.

To see a list of the default capabilities for new users added to each user group, click the links below. These are the capabilities that the group will have if no changes have been made by the school network or school administrator.

Capabilities can be changed, but only by school network administrators or school administrators. (Teachers cannot view or change their capabilities.) Administrators can change capabilities for users already added to the software, those who will be added to the software later (new users), or individuals. For more information, click one of the links below.

Some capabilities affect all of Renaissance Place. Other capabilities are specific to certain products in Renaissance Place. The products listed below have their own additional capabilities; for more information, search for "capabilities" in the search field at the top of this topic.

If you have been given more capabilities, you may have a Change Role option available from the Home page. You may need to use the drop-down list to choose a different user type to see some of the links that you need.
