We're setting up 4 separate student system roles (all based off of the legacy role: Student, with a few permissions changes here and there). They will be:
- Student Traditional Credit
- Student Traditional Audit
- Student Distance Education Credit
- Student Distance Education Audit
These system roles will be manually assigned by our office at the time of student account creation. What we want to do is to have these system roles kept as the "Default role for users in a course: Users who enrol in a course will be automatically assigned this role." In other words, we want the default role for a student enrolled in a course to be whatever their system role is.
Under Site Administration => Users => Permissions => User Policies, it appears that you are forced to choose a single, specific class role to be assigned when someone enrolls in a course. There's no option that I can see akin to "keep system role."
Is this something that can be done, or will we be forced to manually change the role of every student as they enroll for classes?
