In the Content Access section of System Management, District Administrators are able to manage the ability of users to collaborate together on customized versions of both TEKS RS and district-created IFD and YAG components. The collaboration feature allows users to share editing rights for a piece of custom content with any other users that belong to the same district. Altering the controls within the District Assessment Settings table will automatically update all of the subsequent campuses, though District Admins may still customize each campus (if desired).
REQUIRED ROLE: District Content Admin
SITE ACCESS: System Management > TEKS RS Content Access > Content Settings
VIDEO TUTORIAL: Turning IFD and/or YAG Collaboration ON/OFF
On the TEKS RS Content Management page, select the Content Settings tab.
The Collaborate setting allows you to control whether or not basic users within your district are able to collaborate on customized versions of TEKS RS and district-created IFDs and YAGs. Note that the Create My Version feature must be turned ON in order for basic users to be able to create custom content that can then be collaborated on. When the Collaborate setting is turned ON, users that have the Content Creator or Content Admin role may still collaborate on content items created from scratch regardless of whether the Create My Version feature is ON or OFF. For brand new districts, Collaborate is set to OFF as the default for Year at a Glance and Instructional Focus Document.
To turn the Collaborate feature ON, check the box(es) for the desired content type(s).
After doing so, the Collaborate option will appear for individual users in the Options menu associated with each content item located on the My YAGs and/or My IFDs page of the My Content section of a users' accounts.
If Collaborate is turned OFF by unchecking the box(es), the Collaborate option will be hidden from users' view in the Options menu associated with each content item. Therefore, users will be prevented from collaborating on any future content, and any previously collaborated content will also be hidden from view.
For guidance on the collaboration process itself, please see the Content Collaboration support guide.
