Recommended sharing settings allow an application to communicate sharing best practices directly to your district in the dashboard. Even if you have already configured your sharing permissions with an application, they can recommend an update to these settings. You then have the option to accept or decline the application’s recommended sharing settings directly in your dashboard.
How to accept or decline an application's sharing recommendation:
If one of your connected applications has recommended an update to your district’s sharing rules, you’ll receive an email notification.
Additionally, you will see the status of 'Sharing requested' under Applications in your dashboard, as well as on the Overview page of the application.
To review the application’s update to your sharing rules, select ‘Click here’ on the profile page of the application or 'View sharing request' on the Applications page. Selecting either of these will open up a popup window displaying the recommended update.
To accept the update to your sharing rules, select ‘Share’. If you select ‘Share’, the application’s recommended sharing settings will replace any current sharing rules that your district has configured for this application. If you would not like to update your sharing rules at this time, select’ Decline’. If you select ‘Decline’, we’ll remove the notification and your sharing settings for the application will remain the same.
If you are not sure about the application’s reasoning behind the recommended sharing rules, please reach out to the application’s team directly as they’ll be best able to work through with you what should be shared and make any necessary adjustments to their recommendation.
