Searching for Users

Note that you can only share with users that are current instructors in Materia.

Collaboration Options

Full

Grants the user complete control. In addition to distributing the widget to students and receiving scores, the user may edit, copy, or delete the widget, as well as add or remove others from the list of collaborators.

View Scores

Allows the user to distribute the widget among students and receive scores. However, the user cannot edit, delete, or copy the widget.

Expiration

You may set an expiration for each person’s permissions. After this date, the collaboration will be revoked and the user will no longer have access to the widget.

Keep in mind that users with the Full permission level may edit their own expiration date.
