<p>You can add tags to views you create. Tags allow you add descriptive labels to views, which you can use to classify and search for them.</p>
<p>To associate multiple tags to a view, separate each tag with a comma. For example – ‘Assessment, Semester 2, Management’.</p>
<p>Clicking on <strong>Show my tags</strong> will generate a list of those tags you have previously used within your portfolio and the number of times they have been entered. Clicking on a tag in this list will add it to the tags for this view, or remove it if you have already tagged the view with this tag.</p>
<h3>Authentication plugin</h3>
<p>Here you can choose how users in this institution will authenticate to the site. Institutions should have at least one method of authentication tied to them.</p>
<p>The <strong>internal</strong> authentication plugin checks the site database for usernames/paswords. Users have to have an account for this to work, which can be done by allowing registration via the registration form, or using the <a href="add.php" target="_blank">Add User</a> or <a href="uploadcsv.php" target="_blank">Add Users by CSV</a> screens.</p>
<p>The <strong>none</strong> authentication method allows anyone in. Users can pick any username and password. This should only be used for testing!</p>
<p>The other authentication methods generally authenticate against an external source, such as an LDAP server or remote application. They have their own settings, which you can configure in a popup window when you add them.</p>
<p>One setting they normally share is whether accounts can be automatically created in Mahara when a user signs in for the first time (as opposed to accounts being created previously by the admin user, which users can then log in to).</p>
<h3>Default membership period</h3>
<p>You can set how long users will remain associated with this instituion. After this length of time, the users will be removed from the institution.</p>
<p>Users will receive an e-mail before this time reminding them that they will be removed soon.</p>
<h3>Institution display name</h3>
<p>The Institution’s display name is the name that all users will see throughout the system for the institution.</p>
<h3>Locked fields</h3>
<p>Each Institution can configure which user profile fields are locked from editing by the account owner. Examples of fields that might be locked for security and accurate identification purposes are First Name, Last Name and Student ID.</p>
<h3>Institution name</h3>
<p>The Institution name is entered for system database identification only and must be a single text word without numbers or symbols.</p>
<h3>Registration allowed?</h3>
<p>If this setting is enabled, users will be able to register for the site using the registration form.</p>
<p>If more than one institution has this setting enabled, the user will be able to choose which institution they wish to register for using a dropdown.</p>
<p>If no institutions have this setting enabled, then users will not be able to register using the registration form.</p>
<p>In general, if you have users set up to join this institution through a mechanism such as LDAP login or SSO from an external application, you should turn this setting off. You should also turn it off if you wish to control the creation of accounts using the <a href="add.php" target="_blank">Add User</a> or <a href="uploadcsv.php" target="_blank">Add Users By CSV</a> pages.</p>
<h3>Theme</h3>
<p>The theme that users who are logged in and members of this institution will see. If <strong>Site Default</strong> is selected, when a site administrator changes the site default theme, the theme for the users of this institution will change too.</p>
<h3>Password</h3>
<p>Your password must total at least six characters. It must contain at least one number, and at least two letters. Passwords are case sensitive, and must be different from your username.</p>
<p><strong>Warning:</strong> For security reasons, please do not disclose your password to any user. The site administrator will know your password anyway.</p>
<h3>Username</h3>
<p>Your username must be between 3 and 30 characters long, and will not be case sensitive. Letters, numbers and most standard symbols are allowed.</p>
<h3>Allow public views</h3>
<p>If you wish to allow users to create views that may be made accessible to the public, this option should be set to 'yes'. Public views are still only editable by their owner.</p>
<h3>Artefact view inactivity time</h3>
<p>The Artefact view inactivity option allows you to specify the period of inactivity after which a View or Artefact will be considered inactive. This time may be specified in Days, Weeks, Months, Years or No End Date may be selected where inactivity will not be identified.</p>
<h3>Default account inactivity time</h3>
<p>If set, users who do not log in for this amount of time will be considered 'inactive', and will not be able to log in. This time may be specified in Days, Weeks, Months, Years or No End Date may be selected where user accounts should not be made inactive.</p>
<h3>Warning time for inactivity/expiry</h3>
<p>If set, a warning message will be sent to a user this amount of time before their account is due to expire or become inactive. This time may be specified in Days, Weeks, Months, Years or No End Date may be selected where users should not receive a warning before their account expires or they are flagged as having an inactive account.</p>
<h3>Default account lifetime</h3>
<p>If set, user accounts will expire after this amount of time from when they were created. When a user account is expired, the user cannot log in. This time may be specified in Days, Weeks, Months, Years or No End Date may be selected where user accounts should never expire.</p>
<h3>Language</h3>
<p>The language selected will be the site default language for menu items and contextual help throughout your Mahara installation. When additional language translation packs are installed on your Mahara site, users will be able to change their language preference via their Account settings.</p>
<h3>Path to clam</h3>
<p>The filesystem path to <code>clamscan</code> or <code>clamdscan</code> for virus checking. It is assumed that a failure of clam to run will mean that a file should be treated as a virus, and a quarantine directory will be automatically set up by your Mahara installation.</p>
<h3>Path to file</h3>
<p>The filesystem path for the 'file' utility (typically <code>/usr/bin/file</code>). 'file' is used to determine the file type of uploaded files.</p>
<h3>Search plugin</h3>
<p>Where a search plugin additional to the default internal system has been installed, you can select which search engine will be used within the site.</p>
<h3>Session lifetime</h3>
<p>For security reasons, after a specified period of inactivity, a user will be automatically logged off the site. The session lifetime field specifies how many minutes before a user who is inactive on the site, is logged out.</p>
<h3>Site name</h3>
<p>As the name of your Mahara installation, the site name is shown in certain places around the site, as well as in system generated messages.</p>
<h3>Theme</h3>
<p>Where multiple themes have been installed, you will be able to select via dropdown menu which theme to apply to your Mahara site. This theme will be the default theme shown to logged out users.</p>
<p>Institutions can can also have a default theme set, which is shown to users in that institution who are logged in. You can configure themes for institutions in the <a href="../users/institutions.php">Manage Institutions</a> section.
<h3>Users allowed multiple institutions</h3>
<p>If enabled, then users can belong to more than one institution at any one time. Users will be able to apply to join an institution at any time, although the institution will have to approve their request first. Likewise, institutions will be able to invite users, but users must approve this request.</p>
<h3>Virus checking</h3>
<p>If you want all files uploaded by users to be run through a ClamAV virus scan, the virus checking option should be selected.</p>
<p>You have to have ClamAV installed on your server. Many Linux distributions have <code>clamav</code> packages, or you can download and install it from the <a href="http://www.clamav.net/">ClamAV website</a>.

<p>The Institutions page allows you to edit existing, and set up new institutions associated with your site. Institutions are largely containers for users that can have their own administrators and staff members, leaving the site admin free to deal with running the site.</p>
<h3>Admin Notifications</h3>
<p>The Admin Notifications page lists all users with Admin access on your site, and their selected Activity Preference for all Admin Notifications. There should be at least one administrator receiving each type of message generated.</p>
<h3>Plugin Administration</h3>
<p>The Plugin Administration area lists all those plugins currently installed on your Mahara site and provides a link to the plugin configuration settings for site customisation, where available.</p>
<h3>Links and Resources Menu</h3>
<p>Within your Mahara installation it is possible to have a Links and Resources Menu for both public and logged in users. This menu is shown to all users on most pages, allowing you to link to useful and important pages and documents.</p>
<h3>Site pages</h3>
<p>The core pages of a Mahara installation may be edited dynamically by a Site Administrator. If you wish to customise the content of a core page (About, Home, Logged Out Home, Privacy Statement, Terms and Conditions and the Upload Copyright Statement) from the default text select the page you wish to modify and edit using the HTML editor. Ensure you Save Changes before loading another editable page or exiting the Site Pages area.</p>
