Common Activity Settings: Restrict Access

Restrict Access settings allows an activity to only be accessed by users which match (or fail to match) a set of criteria.  Choose:

  • Whether the set of criteria must  or must not  be satisfied in order to access the activity. 
  • If you have multiple restrictions, an option will be added after the word "match" to match all or any of the restrictions.  If  all is chosen, then failing to satisfy any of the restrictions will block access.  If any is chosen, then access would only be blocked if all of the restrictions were unsatisfied.
  • Clicking the eye will choose between completely hiding the activity Open eye icon or just greying it out Open eye icon (making it unusable) for the user.
  • Clicking the × will delete the restriction from the set of criteria.
