What is a user?

A user is a member of your blog site – they can have several different levels of access.

Video: How to manage your profile and users

Please note that at Otago the method for adding a user to your site is a little different from what is shown in this video, all you will need is the user’s University of Otago username.

If you have a bulk load of users you wish to add to your site please contact AskOtago as they will be able to help you. You will need to provide a list of their University of Otago usernames.
