We use Drupal as the basis for a student information website. We have 3 intakes of students a year and I would like to be able to allocate students various rights based on roles, primarily if they are
- a current student,
- an applying student,
- or an alumni.
But I would also like to be able to identify them by what class they did.
- Should I create a new role for each new intake?
- Should I use groups?
- Is there an alternative method I should use?
