Aeries displays a Resources section on a user's home page which will display website resources. This can be configured from the Update Links for Online Resource Center page within Aeries.
NOTE: This page only supports adding links to individual schools at the school level. District level links are not supported.
Resource links can be added for each of the four groups listed in the dropdown. Switching the selected group will display the links that have been added.
Teacher - Teacher accounts
Parents - Parent accounts
Students - Student accounts
Counselors - This group includes regular user accounts and admin accounts.
The records are stored in the LNK table. Aeries account types of Users, Teachers, Parents, or Students all have access to view the Resources section on the home page without the need to add the LNK table to their security.
Only User account types can be given security rights to the Update Links for Online Resource Center page to add, update, or delete links to the schools they can access.
