Edit existing account (new passwords, etc.)
Teachers may find that they need to edit accounts in order to:
- fix incorrect usernames
- reset forgotten passwords
- block or activate a user
- change an email address
- change teachers, classes or grades
- create or change a user's roles
Changes to student and teacher accounts can be made quickly and easily.
Step 1. Click "Administer" in the navigation box, then select "User management," then "Users."
Step 2. Scroll down the list to locate the username associated with the account you want to edit.
Step 3. Click "Edit" on the far right side of the account details.
Note: Click the "Username" heading at the top if you want the list to appear in alphabetical order; click it twice to make the list revert to its original order (membership, newest to oldest).
Step 4. Erase the information you don't want and type in the new information. You can also change a user's status or role as follows:
- Block a user by clicking the "blocked" box under Status.
- Activate a user by clicking the ""active" box under Status.
- Change a user's role by clicking the appropriate boxes under Roles.
Step 5. Scroll to the bottom and click "Save." Information you enter will not be saved unless you click this button.
If you are editing another user's account, we suggest you note any changes you make so it is easier to identify possible errors.
You will not be able to see the current password, but you will be able to enter a new one.
