The User Directory Security page is used to enable/disable all of the settings for the User Directory. It is split into two parts: the tools that relate to ePortfolio and those that do not. If you do not have the ePortfolio functionality enabled (i.e. you have not purchased the add-on), then you will not see the ePortfolio setting options on this page. The tick boxes that appear on this page e.g. All users, Adults etc, depend on the profile sets that you have set up. If you want to configure a setting for a profile set that does not appear, you can tick the Custom box, and then select the profile set by clicking on the 'click here' link. This includes any profile sets that you have shared with another school.
