BLOG: Getting more of your people doing more of the things they need to

Schematic showing a network of people

1st October 2019 - A new academic year invariably means you have new team members who are raring to go and make their mark on your organisation. Add in your new student group committees keen to start work on events and activities for their members and you’re looking at some admin work to get all the right permissions set up for all the right people.

So we’ve spent some time simplifying MSL’s permissions management system to help you get your team members set up and working as quickly as possible:

  • The list of permissions for a Person and Groups in the Admin Web has been simplified to get you to straight to where you need to be
  • Sorting, page numbering and filtering are now available to help you easily navigate and narrow down results when there are a lot of inherited permissions
  • Effective Permissions columns are now ordered for a more logical flow and the Target Group and Source both now link to the group permissions URL
  • The Source of permissions is clearly displayed indicating whether inherited, assigned or (for people) from a membership of another group, ensuring a quick and accurate reference.

These improvements will benefit all users of the admin web as well as Elections and Jobs areas on your main website, providing a more consistent experience.

BLOG: Improving your online user experience

Graphic representing students working and accessing online info

20th November 2019 - Instant access to everything, at any time, no matter what it is – that’s the mantra by which your student members live; from travel information to fast food, gig tickets to current affairs. Your website is a hub of information and opportunities to participate that many students rely upon to support their university and social lives - and so they expect that same feeling of immediacy from your site as they get from ASOS and Amazon.
