Limited User to just block/unblock sites

Hello. It would be a great idea to have users set-up who have access to the "quick allow/block" sites section ONLY within Guardian. This would alleviate lots of work load off of the ICT department and allow designated "power users" to assign blocked sites and vise-versa.

At the moment, you can only assign a non-administerative user access to the whole of guardian, which isn't a great idea.

An update for this would be great.

Regards,
Frankie - Blue Coat School Birmingham.

    You could achieve this using swurl. Ask your account manager to get you an account then you create lists (user defined categories), adds users (the people you want to manage only those lists) and join them together. Then use the lists they control in a policy with the relevant action, an added bonus is that they can manage these lists whilst off-site (lesson planning for example).
