Dashboard Access

The District Assignment Code field displays when the District Staff checkbox has been marked and gives users access to the Ed-Fi Dashboards based on the Title that is selected for the staff. This field populates the Education Organization Reference, Staff Classification Descriptor and Position Title fields in the Staff Education Organization Assignment resource. This field has its own sub-right and users must have any combination of RWAD tool rights to see and populate this field.  If there are staff that should not have district level access in the dashboards, the staff member also needs at least one District Assignment record. The staff receives dashboard access to only the schools for which they have an active District Assignment record.
