Rules - Configuration


Rules are sets of criteria that are used in various areas of the application. Use the Rules page to create and manage rules to be used as filters, permission rules, and auto-tagging rules.

  • Filters are used throughout the workspaces. They can be used by school or district staff to locate specific subsets of records within workspaces. They can also be used to define which subset of students will receive recurring emails. 
  • Permission Rules are applied to school or district staff accounts to limit what records they are able to see. 
  • Auto-Tagging Rules are used to automatically apply tags to a set of records. 

To access the Rules configuration for a form, choose Configuration from the main menu, then General. Choose the form on the Student Data page, then select the Rules tab.

The PROP:UserAccountEmailAddress field will be available for configuration within Rules for the Roster or Submission workspace regardless of the Parent Account Email Verification feature. If the access level is Restricted or Private, the PROP:UserAccountEmailAddress will be available to select in an expression when a user is configuring any rule/filter.
