### Can we restrict email change by user?

Hello there.

We are using WeBWork with our lms via LTI and was wondering, like in our LMS, can we restrict the WebWork users from changing their own email address? This way, we can ensure that users can only have one email and designated by our institution for consistency.

Basically, can we lock in and prohibit changes to their email address.

is this possible?

thanks

In defaults.conf, you will see the line

change_email_address           => "student",

If you want to make this change for a single course, put the following line in that course's course.conf file. If you want to change it for all courses, put it in localOverrides.conf
