To do this:

  1. Click on the drop down privacy list and select 'Custom...'.
  2. In the pop-up window, tick the boxes of the groups you want to include in your custom privacy level. It is fine to have just one box ticked or to have a number of boxes ticked.

Example: If you were writing an entry about an essay plan that you wanted to show your tutor, but did not want other students to see, you could choose the privacy level 'Staff'.
