Edit a User Profile

Your District's Illuminate administrator can make changes to users' information (such as site affiliations, password, name, department affiliations, role, etc.). For example, you might have a site principal listed as a district administrator (his or her former position) instead of principal, and you want to correct it since you allow different permissions at the district administrator level than you do at the site administrator level. This lesson will show how to do this.
