Dual Roles allows users to have both a Student and a Staff or Faculty role. Each role is completely separate from the other, with no overlap in permissions or visibility.
When users are assigned dual roles, they will see which role they are logged in as to the right of their name on the top right. Users can switch between roles by selecting the arrow next to their role.
On a user’s Settings page, they can change which role to login to by default.
