Multiple User Types

Posted 1 year ago by mac03733

i am planning out a school management system, the main actors are ( Teachers ,Students , Parent ).

i though i will simply have

User Model -> will have attributes common to ( Teachers ,Students , Parent ).

Teacher Model -> will have user_id and teacher specific attributes.

Student Model -> will have user_id and student specific attributes

Parent Model -> will have user_id and parent specific attributes

Now i realised that a single user can have multiple roles ,example a Teacher can also be a parent ,this brings up the question of which dashboard to direct them to when they login, how to control / manage their different permissions between the accounts and so forth.

my initial solution was to prompt the any user with multiple roles which account they want to use upon login.

######How would you guys tackle this ?????????? whats the best way ...
