Settings in the author backend for UGC (User Generated Content) event dates

The following four settings are required that the user and/or user-team leader can create own event dates on the tab My content on the learning place:

User rights for UGC

You assign the user rights Create an activated event for user content and Create course activation for user content to the user or/and the user-team leader. We recommend to assign optionally the user right Create media for user content to permit the user or/and the user-team leader to create and upload media. Further information you find under Permission groups or under User rights.

You see the mandatory settings in the Permission group wizard on the screenshot.

Storage categories for UGC

We recommend very strongly to create an own category for UGC and a sub category for UGC templates in the Content and Activation client because for each user or user-team leader should be created a sub category  in the category UGC in Avendoo® (see third screenshot). By the selection of two categories for the storage in the Content client the content (courses, events and event dates) is stored in the first storage category and the course activations are stored in the second storage category. You got an excellent overview about your UGC content by using this storage structure.
To create these categories you go into the overview of the course activations for example and click in the category tree on the category which should be above. Then you choose in the context menu Create new category (see first and second screenshot). These categories are then visible in the content and activation client structure on the tab Options in the Client wizard (see fourth screenshot).
We recommend that you define the UGC category regarding content and activation client under User content in the client of the user or user-team leader (tab Options in the Client wizard), and that you define a fallback author in the activation client by clicking and selecting (see fourth screenshot). The fallback author is necessary if the account of the origin creator of user content will be deleted.
Thus the content (courses, events and event dates) is stored in the first selected category UGC with the user category in the content client which guarantees an excellent clear arrangement. The course activations are stored in the second selected category UGC templates.

Template selection for UGC

To initialize your UGC event date with content it’s necessary that you define in the Client wizard on the tab Options a course activation template, a course template, an event template and an event date template under Activated event date templates in the content client (see screenshot).
Thus the user and the user-team leader get initialized texts and options and pre-settings. Pre-settings like mails or event type are not possible for example.

Object permissions for UGC

You set the check marks for the object permissions Read learning object and Read course activation in the category UGC templates via the context menu Information → Security Permission groups in the column Object permissions (see screenshot).
Further information about object permissions you find in the chapter Security on the page Category tree.
