Within your uConnect platform, you can set up user accounts for as many members of your team, student staff, or other stakeholders as you would like. These are users who you would like to have the ability to edit content or other areas within the uConnect platform. There are four different levels of user permissions that you can select from to ensure that when you add a user, they're able to manage exactly what you need them to.

Add a new user:

  1. Click on the Manage tab in the left-hand side bar of the dashboard

  2. Hover over Users and click Add New

  3. Complete each field, being sure to specify the appropriate role for that user. Check out our Role Permissions Guide to decide which level of permission is best for the new user.

  4. Click Add New User at the bottom of page

Once you've created a basic profile, you can edit it to add content and contact information.

Add a user who is already a subscriber:

If you need to add a user to the platform who is already a subscriber to your platform, perhaps a student worker who is subscribed to your automated alerts, when trying to add them as a new user you will receive an error message. In that case, follow the below steps to update that user's permission levels.

  1. Click on the Manage tab in the left-hand side bar of the dashboard, then Users

  2. Complete the fields in the 'Add Existing User' area.

  3. Click 'Add Existing User'

Add a user to your staff page:

  1. Click on the Publish tab in the left-hand side bar of the dashboard

  2. Click Pages

  3. Hover over your Staff page, then select Edit

  4. Scroll down to Page Settings

  5. In the search bar, enter and select the name of the user you would like to add to your site's Staff page

  6. Change the order in which the users appear on your site's staff page by dragging and moving names in the Live Staff Page Users field.  To remove a profile from your staff page, hover over the user's name and click on the red X
