Edit User

When editing user accounts, different options are presented depending on whether you are editing your own settings or those of someone else. If you are not logged in as an administrator, you cannot edit other users’ accounts. To change the parameters of a user, select the Users tab, and then click the Login link for the user you want.

Regardless of administrative privileges, if you are editing your own settings, you can:

  • Change name. Click this link to enter a new user logon name.
  • Change password. Click this button to open the Change Password page. Enter your old password, then enter your new password and confirm it.
  • Change preferences. You can only access your own personal defaults, not those of other users. This opens the same dialog as when you click the Preferences link at the very top of the page.

If you are logged in as an administrator, and editing a user other than yourself, you can change everything except the preferences.
