      Description

      In the spirit of improving the user experience and, in some cases, accessibility, consider adding icons to Resources to help instructors or maintain users quickly see some "under the hood" settings for an item.

      FEATURE REQUEST

      Consider whether there is value in adding a Group icon for files or folders that are limited to specific groups to see.

      Given that there is a label in the "Access" field that says "Select group(s)," this icon may not be necessary. It may have some value for visual consistency, but also must be weighed against the possibility of "icon clutter." I offer this simply as an option for community review.  I don't feel strongly that this icon would offer as much value as the other proposed icons.

       

      Item Description
      Content Type File or Folder
      Setting Choice "Display this file to selected groups only."
      Proposed Icon fa-users
      Label for "Access" field "Select group(s)"
      Should the line be italicized? No (unless hidden)
      Title I propose "Limited to select group(s)."
      Aria Label I am not sure if "" would be appropriate since both a title exists and the label in the "Access" field exists?  The icon would seem decorative at this point. If not, I propose "This item is limited to select group(s)."
      Who can see? Users with "Access/create group resources."
