The delegated access tool controls both delegating access to users outside of the site membership realm as well as setting up and controlling site shopping period information.  To make it easier to describe, I will break the description into two tools: “Delegated Access Tool” and “Shopping Period Tool”.


Shopping Period Settings Page
This is the page where a shopping period administrator can edit the shopping period information for their sites or departments.

Using the Tool

Adding the Tool

There are two tools for delegated access:


The shopping user is a person who is interested in trying a site that has been set up for shopping.  This user will go to shopping period tool (more than likely in the !Gateway page).  Here they will be able to see all their options in a node architecture and they will be able to search for sites by ID or Title.  When they have found the site they want to shop for, they will click the link for that site and inherit the privileges for that shopping period.
