We have families that have submitted the contract and have students that are enrolled in the next year.  I still want them to be able to access the Parent Portal this year so that they can pay their bills online.  However, the 'Parent' role is added to a user record only if they are linked to a student that is enrolled in the current year.  How can I give such can such families access to the Parent Portal?


You can give such families access to the Parent Portal by making desired pages in the Parent Portal visible to the "Applicant" role.  This way, even if the student is enrolled in the next year, their parent will have an "Applicant" role and will be able to access the portal.
