Elevated access in ICON
There are several roles in ICON that can help administrative staff do what they want to do. The Support Staff roles (L1, L2, and L3) generally only have access to read tools and files in an ICON site. The Collegiate Admin roles (L1, L2, and L3) generally have access to do everything an instructor would do in a course, plus access to additional administrative tools. Sections one and two on this page: ICON User Roles and Associated Rights cover these roles in more detail.
To get this level of access, fill out the Elevated ICON Access Authorization Form and submit it to workflow. Approval is required by your area’s IT Director, and completing FERPA training is required.
ICON Collegiate Administrator Tools
Depending on your collegiate administrator role in ICON, you may or may not have access to the tools below. Contact the ICON Support team if you have questions about using these tools.

The scripts below provide additional functionality within ICON. The scripts require the Greasemonkey add-on for your FireFox browser. Once Greasemonkey is installed, download these scripts into Greasemonkey. The D2L Magic Bar provides quick access to common tasks and tools in a top menu bar, while the D2L Instructor Enrollments tool enables the permanent unenrollments of instructors from registrar courses.
This script writes a div to the top of the page on ICON and ICON Beta that contains links to common course tools (content, discussions, classlist, etc), course administration (edit course, groups, sections, etc), as well as organization administration (users, manage courses, etc). This script makes it really easy to jump around from screen to screen, and can be especially useful if an instructor has removed certain links in their course (such as the classlist).
Installing the scripts:
- Download and install Greasemonkey for FireFox.
- Download the attached zip file, and extract the scripts.
- In FireFox, go to File > Open, and then open one of the scripts.
- FireFox will ask if you want to install this script, click OK.
- You may have to restart FireFox for the script to take effect.
Removing the scripts:
- Greasemonkey will install a button on the navigation area of FireFox (to the right of the URL and Search box).
- Click the down arrow next to the monkey’s face.
- Select Manage User scripts.
- Click Remove (to the far right of the script name) and confirm that you’d like to remove the script.
