Editing users

To change user information or permission level, do the following:

  1. Click Classlist Editor in the main menu.
  2. Select Edit selected users and select the users you want to change passwords for by clicking the checkboxes in the Select column. You can also chose visible users or all users instead of selected users if you wish.
  3. Click Take Action!.
  4. On the next screen, change user information as you desire. Note that changing a user's Student ID here does not change the user's password (as it does when adding new users).
  5. Select Save Changes.
  6. Click Take Action!.

Changing passwords

  1. Click Classlist Editor in the main menu.
  2. Select Give new passwords to selected users and select the users you want to change passwords for by clicking the checkboxes in the Select column. You can also chose visible users or all users instead of selected users if you wish.
  3. Click Take Action!.
  4. On the next screen, fill in new passwords for each user. If you leave a password blank, the user's password will not be changed.
  5. Select Save changes.
  6. Click Take Action!.

You cannot change your own password using this feature. To change your own password, click Password/Email in the main menu.

Adding new users

  1. Click Classlist Editor in the main menu.
  2. Select Add ___ Students and fill in the number of users you would like to add. (That number just controls the number of input lines you'll get on the next screen. You're not committed to adding that number of users.)
  3. Click Take Action!
  4. On the next screen, fill in values for each item of user data. The Login Name is required. The user's password will be initially set to the value you give for Student ID (but you can change it later).
  5. Select any sets that you would like to assign to the new users. This is a convenience feature — you can always assign sets to users later.
  6. Click Add Students.

New users are given the default permission level, which is "student" by default.

Deleting users

Importing users from a classlist file

  1. Click File Manager in the main menu.
  2. Below the file list, specify the file you want to upload (this varies by browser -- the button may say something like Browse or Choose File).
  3. Click the Upload: button.
  4. Click Classlist Editor in the main menu.
  5. Select the Import users from file option and select the file you just uploaded from the first popup menu.
  6. Decide whether uploaded users should replace existing users using the second popup menu.
  7. Click Take Action!.
