Viewing the Users List
The Users page shows a list of all users who have accounts in your Apporto instance.
User accounts are created automatically when users login via single sign-on (SSO) or a learning management system (LMS). You may also manually create "local" accounts in Apporto. Local accounts may be created one-at-a-time or via bulk import from a CSV file.
The Users page enables account creation, editing, and deletion. You may edit an account to assign a role or group, change a password or state, etc. Additional actions include sending announcemetns to users and the ability to impersonate (log in as) a user.
User states include active, deprovisioned, or deleted. Active users are able to access Apporto. Deprovisioned users may not login to Apporto, but their profile is persisted in case the user is reprovisioned within a particular time period (30 days, by default). When a user account is deleted, their profile is also deleted (eg. files saved to the desktop and documents).
This short guide will show you step by step how to:
