      Description

      The Drop Box tool in Sakai is very beneficial for a number of faculty, who often just want to use a simple file exchange tool for assignments and other needs. 

      Often times, however, instructors want to allow teaching assistants (or other custom roles) access to the student folders within the tool. This has come up several times at our institution, and the only way to allow for this is to manually modify the role for each class within the Realms tool. 

      As such, I'm proposing a "Permissions" tab on this tool, where instructors can customize role permissions to their needs. This "Permission" tab exists in a number of other tools (like Resources and Assignments) and so, as a point of consistency, should also be available in this tool as well.

      This "Permissions" tab would be unique to the Drop Box tool (and would not be coupled with Resources).
