Updating account information

Table of contents
No headers


An existing account can be edited to change the account name, join password, allowed features, or the assigned account administrator/sub-administrator. 

Changes to the administrator of an account take effect immediately. The previous user is no longer able to access any administrative functions of the account unless they remain administrator of a higher level account. 


1. Click on the edit icon to the right of the account name on the administrator homepage and select Edit account settings option from the drop down menu



2. Make the changes to the account you need to. Here you can change your account name, Administrator and some default options for the account

3. Click on Submit in the bottom left corner of the account modification window to save any changes made


Note: Changes made to an account will be effective immediately. New administrator users will be sent a new user welcome e-mail from Turnitin with a password. 
Note: If an existing user profile is added as an administrator or sub-administrator, they will receive a notification e-mail that they now have administrator access. These users will have access to their administrator homepage by changing user type after logging into Turnitin with the existing user profile and password.
