User Types

User Types

Setting user permissions one account at a time can be tedious. Through User Types, you can quickly update and maintain permissions for many users at once. User Types are sets of permissions that can be assigned to user accounts. Whenever you want to make a widespread permission change, just edit the User Type and all associated user accounts will update automatically.

Setting a Default User Type

If your users are creating accounts via the Self-Enrollment feature, they will automatically be assigned a default User Type. You can specify which User Type will act as the default by checking the box under the Self-Enrollment column. The User Type that has that box checked is the User Type that will be assigned to self-enrolled users.
