\item Functionality Blocked?

-Choose communication and/or collaboration functions in LON-CAPA to block for non-privileged users, i.e., users without the Evade communication blocking'' (evb) privilege (Course Coordinators or Instructors).  The only LON-CAPA messages a non-privileged user can display are Critical Messages'' sent by course personnel or by a Domain Coordinator.  Users will still be able to send regular LON-CAPA messages, but they will not be viewable by non-privileged recipient(s) also subject to IP-based communication blocking.  For functions subject to blocking, a Communication blocked'' link will be shown, which when followed will pop-up open a window to explain the cause of the block.

+If IP-based blocking of Messaging'' is in effect, the only LON-CAPA messages a non-privileged user can display are Critical Messages'' sent by course personnel or by a Domain Coordinator.  If "Blocking" is in effect, one of two buttons: (a) Move to Inbox'' or (b) Confirm Receipt'' will be displayed below each new critical message, but their equivalents with the reply option will not be. Users will also be unable to send regular LON-CAPA messages, except via Send Feedback'' (in course context) to send questions to an instructor or other designated course personnel. If Send Feedback'' is used within a session subject to IP-based blocking, subject and content originally sent will be replaced in the sender's Sent Messages'' Folder with the text: "Not shown due to IP block". Lastly, if the Ask helpdesk form settings'' for the domain include theCc e-mail'' field as an optional field, that will not apply in the case where IP-based blocking of Messaging'' is in effect fo
r a logged-in user who is completing the help form.
