    I work for a school district and we are using sitefinity 3.7x for our district site.  Our district would like each teacher to have their own web page.

    I want to be able to use the following strategy for individual teacher pages and I want to know if it can be done the way I would like it to or if someone could point me in a different direction..

    We will be implementing Active Directory soon which will be tied to our HR Departments software so that it will be instantly updated when someone is hired, fired, quits, etc.

    My idea is that we have a scheduled script that runs every night and scans the AD for any changes.

    For any new teachers that are hired it will create a new web page for them and give them permissions to edit their web page and add child pages to their website but not to any other areas of the district site.

    For any teachers that left the district it will go in and delete their pages and permissions. 

    My idea was to create a subdomain called teachers.myschooldistrict.com and host all of the teacher pages there based on location such as...

    teachers.myschooldistrict.com/highschool1/JanePDoe/Default.aspx
    teachers.myschooldistrict.com/middleschool1/JohnPDoe/Default.aspx

    etc.

    Obviously I will need to be able to create directories or Pagegroups on the fly but I am not sure how to  give them permissions to edit just their page and no one elses.   We have about 1500 teachers so I abviously do not want to create 1500 individual and custom roles to accomplish this.

    I would also like to eventually list a directory of each teachers webpage for a specific campus on that campus's website, as well, which will also be a subdomain like:
     
    highschool1.myschooldistrict.com/directory/Default.aspx;

    Obviously a big project and I am only looking for a broad over view of peoples thoughts right now.  I will be asking more technical and detailed questions later in this poat or in other posts.

    Hello Bleutiger,

    Thank you for your questions.
    The permissions are based on the roles, so you should definitely have different role for every person. We are aware that this is not ideal, and have implemented granular permissions in 4.0. As for the rest of the functionality, I believe that it will go smoothly. 

    Let me know if you stumble upon any specific issue.

    All the best,
    Georgi

    What is the estimated release date of Version 4.0?  There are several postes in the forums that I have been reading for my specific issues working in a school district that all seem to be addressed in the 4.0 release.

    I have several months before I need to be able to implement the situation I am talking about here but I don't want to start on one solution only to have to redo it in the new implementation.

    Anyway just checking.

    Hello bleutiger,

    There is not public ETA for 4.0. We will try to release at the end of March.

    Sweet!..

    I realise this is not official but that would be almost perfect for my timeline.
