How does the Starfish platform manage access to different information?

The Starfish platform uses a combination of roles, relationships, and privileges to manage access to information. First, each institution defines the roles and relationships that reflect how your people really work together. In most cases, administrative staff can view information about all users, but advisors and instructors only have relationships to some students. A user’s role and associated permissions also govern the availability (and control over) many other aspects of the Starfish platform, including dashboards, reports, tools, appointment types, referral types, and note types.

There are a lot of options, which is why the Starfish Client Success Team can help you decide the best ways to both protect “need to know” information and streamline common activities. The goal is to allow each faculty, program or other functional group to work with students in its own way.
