Database Viewer - This tool can be used to view the data of a particular course in addition to the logs as a means of debugging should an error be encountered.


Unlink / Relink Tool - This tool can be used if a user is experiencing issues with Turnitin, where there may be an issue with their user data e.g. duplicate or incorrect email address.


User Management - This tool allows you to delete users from the BB Direct Users table.
