To help Admins to appreciate the value of the Analysis page, and understand the permission that determine who has access to the page. We will begin with an overview of what the page offers and then we will consider how an Admin can grant access to this additional functionality.
What Is The Analysis Page?
At times, the information available to a user simply by means of the application pages is not enough; a deeper insight in to the data, or even a different presentation of the data would be helpful. That is where the Analysis page comes in.
Located at the top of the application are the links to the primary pages. Included in these is the Analysis page, once the option has been activated for the user.
The Analysis page contains a series of pre-defined reports that can be run for a date or date range. These reports have been created in response to user requests for specific insight into their data.
Granting Access To Analysis Reports
As an Admin, you control users access to the reports by means of Settings > General Settings > Manage Reports. By default, all users have access to the Analysis reports.
Since permission is automatically granted to all staff members, one of the first steps you may want to take (depending on your school’s data policy) is to adjust or even disable access to the Analysis page.
As you can see from the image below, access to the reports can be quite granular, allowing a user to see just one, all of the reports or any number in between.
