Creating a New Person

Currently System Administration content is relevant to Planning & Self-Study and limited Student Learning & Licensure admins.

In order to create user accounts for your institution, your account needs access to the System Administrator module. To access this module, select System Administration from the Navigator app switcher in the top right corner. This module is visible only to users with the System Administrator role.


From within the System Administrator tool, you have access to the People tab, which will show you a list of all the user accounts at your institution:



From this page, you can create new users.  To create a new user, click Create New Person on the top right of the screen. When you create a new user, you have the option to assign a role to them. You can also edit your users’ account information, including their Role, by clicking the edit button (the icon of a pen) to the right of their name.


When creating a new person in System Administration, you can add a Person ID, or you can opt to choose from an auto-generated Person ID that mirrors the user's email address. 



Or, you can choose to overwrite the auto-generated Person ID and create a Person ID of your choice.
