I wanted to create a new role where by the only additional permission is that the user can manually create other user accounts.
The purpose is so people can enroll their own clients without delay.
I created a new role and ticked allow for 'create users' but is doenst work !
When the user with that permission logs in and tries to create a new user the error is in a pink box and says
"You can only edit your own information"
I dont want to also give them permission to edit all other users - just add new ones.
Any clues appreciated.
After creating this role, you need to assign the users to this role at system level, following links on your administration block (Users->Permission->Assign Roles).
thanks for the reply.
I did assign the role to a person but moodle doesnt allow that user to add 'new users' unless I also give him the permission to 'update user profiles'.
I only want to allow this 'current user' (a staff member) to add 'new users' manually not give him access to edit all other current user profiles.
this meets my needs! I created a new role "user_admin", assigned a user to this on the site level, but the user does not see the "admin menue" on the site level. How can I arrange that?2
Is there any written comprenehnsive source about the new 1.7 role feature (beside of the "use moodle" stuff)?
