How do I set a shopping period?

Go to Delegated Access tool

Select the Delegated Access too from the Tool Menu in the Administration Workspace or in your own My Workspace site.

Go to shopping period settings

Go to shopping period settings

Click the Shopping Admin button.

Select hierarchy nodes

Select hierarchy nodes

Click on the root node and continue expanding nodes to select the appropriate node(s) and/or site(s). If you want to configure a single shopping period for all sites in your Sakai instance, you can skip this step.

Important Notes:

  • Settings you select for a node will apply to all its "child" (lower-level) nodes, but not to any other nodes at the same level in the hierarchy. You can always override settings that a lower-level node inherits from a higher node.
  • While you can select multiple nodes and sites, you will have to configure a shopping period for each node/site separately.
  • Keep in mind that you can only choose a single site role for a particular node. Be sure to confirm that all sites in a node include the role you select.
