Well, I found an alternative, but I would like to have your confirmation on the way it works, because it is not like I would have imagined it.
If I assign all the Update XXX Data_any permissions, on Personal, Family, Medical, etc information, I will get links in the Data Updater menu to modify information on the topics I have granted permissions on.
In fact, what you get is the ability to make a modification, and request approval from the Administrator to validate the change.
The Administrator will receive notification of your request, and will have to take action (approve or not)
This method splits the original information (the one in the Application Form) into different sections, Family, Medical, etc., and allows you to modify each part individually.
This is a bit counterintuitive (until you understand it, of course ), but on the bright side, it allows better granularity.
So far so good.
Now, what I find a bit confusing is the following:
For Finance and Medical, the filter is automatically set to students, so in the listbox you will see only students.
For Family information, on the other hand, instead of showing students, the list shows parents only.
I would have expected to see the students, as this is Family information for the Student.
This filter forces you to know the name of the parents. I guess that this filtering was based on a particular workflow at the time it was built, but in general I would say that you look for the Family of a student, and don't know the name of the parents
Finally, for Personal information, there is no filter, so again you can modify the information of all the users in the system.
So no granularity at all here.
Is it possible to change these filtering criteria?
Otherwise, this option is not much different from setting the Manage Users_edit permission, as it will allow unrestricted access to all users’ information.
