To allow the local administration of extension requests 2 Myplace roles exist: Extensions Manager and Extensions Approver
By default Lecturers, Class Organisers and Class Administrators will receive notifications of extension requests and can action them similar to the Extension Approver role. However this may be disabled based on local departmental practices. See Example Configurations for known local practices.
This role allows holders to assign other Extension Managers and, more importantly, assign Extension Approvers.
The assignment of other users into these roles is via the Assign Roles option on the Myplace Category Management page.
There should be at least one user (typically a departmental / faculty administrator) who will hold this role, and they may create others to spread the load.
This role affords the capabilities to:
Extension Managers should be defined on Myplace categories for Faculties and Departments, and they are able to manage the holders of this role and the Extension Approvers role for that category and all categories below it.
You will need to access the Course and Category management page on Myplace: https://classes.myplace.strath.ac.uk/course/management.php?view=categories
Next access the Assign Roles screen by clicking on the Gear icon and selecting Assign Roles from the sub-menu.
This will display the Assign Roles in Category screen
The Assign Roles in Category screen will display a list of roles that you are able to assign.

Once you have finished assigning / unassigning users you may simple leave the page via any of the links.
The Assign another role and Back to the list of roles options at the bottom of the allow you to jump straight to another role to assign users or return to the previous page (the list of roles).
You may wish to use the Assign another role and jump to the Extension Approver role if the user you have added will also be making extension request decisions as the Extension Manager role does not grant these capabilties.
To assign an Extension Approver follow the steps for Assigning Extension Manager (above) but choose Extension Approver as the role.
The Extensions process in Myplace can be tailored in a number of ways:
The Additional Information (2) will be displayed on the Extension Request form for every class in the category and it's sub-categories, but may be overridden in sub-categories.
