Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 3.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle is probably available here: Allow role overrides.

Template:Moodle 1.7

Location: Administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles

This page is for setting which roles can be overridden by each role.

Note: In addition to setting which role(s) can be overridden, you also need to allow the capability to override roles.

Enabling teachers to override roles

Allow role overrides in Moodle 1.8

In order for teachers to make the most out of the roles and permissions functionality, it is highly recommended that you enable teachers to set role overrides for students. To do so, you need to first allow the capability to override roles and then set which role(s) teachers can override.

  1. Access Administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles.
  2. Edit the teacher role and change the capability moodle/role:override to allow.
  3. Click the button "Save changes".
  4. Click the tab "Allow role overrides" (in Administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles)
  5. Check the checkbox where the teacher row and the student column intersect to allow a teacher to override the student role.
  6. Click the button "Save changes".
