Files can be uploaded to student and user profiles. Users must have the edit file/view file permission set in their user groups to be able to do this. These files are not shared with the student or the user, if you wish to share with them, please use the My Files option.
The system has a default list, but you can add file types to organise the files into categories. Users with the permission file types edit can add types to the list. We advise that this is restricted to super users only.
To add a file type, go to any student profile, and in edit mode on the File tab, you will see an Edit option next to the file type.
A slide-over will appear with the options to add a new type.
Note that types already applied to a file are grey, whereas types that have never been used are clear and can be deleted. Click the Add button and a new empty line will appear. Then Update to save the list. The new type option will be available in the drop-down list when uploading a file on both student and user profiles.
NB: File types can only be added via a student profile.
