Similarly, set the 'Use slot based access controls' to yes in the column: for in Course' for Resource' (or for Enclosing Map or Folder'), if setting for all resources in a folder.

-Change the 'Use slot based access controls' for resource column parameter to 'Yes'. Change the 'Slots of availability' parameter for the course in for resource column to the slot name that you created. You may need to change the input type (the combo box at the top of the popup) to 'String Value' instead of 'default'.
+If the slot you created is an instructor-assigned slot then you will also set a value for the 'Slots of availability' parameter (in Course' for Resource' (or for Enclosing Map or Folder') column, as appropriate. The value you enter will be the name of the slot you created. In the pop-up window the input type (combo box at the top of the popup) should be: `String Value'.  If more than one instructor-assigned slot will apply to to a particular resource, use : as the separator between the slot names.
