Assigning  Sub-Administrators to a Pre-Existing Account

Creating a new sub-account and assigning a sub-administrator


1. Click the new account green plus icon to the right of your account name on the administrator homepage



2. Enter the following:

  • Account name
  • Join Password (six or more characters long, used for instructors joining the account)



3. (Optional) Assign an account sub administrator by checking the Add a sub-administrator to this account checkbox. 



Note: If you don't assign a sub-administrator on sub-account creation you can at a later date. Editing the Administrator email / last name / first name this will assign this person as a sub-administrator. This will only happen for a sub-account, changing the details on a primary account will make them the primary administrator. 

Assigning  Sub-Administrators to an Existing Account


If there are sub-accounts on a primary account, a sub-administrator can be assigned or changed by the administrator of the primary account. Sub-administrators will only have access to the accounts they are assigned to.


1. From your administrator homepage, click the edit icon to the right of a sub-account and select Edit account settings from the drop down menu



2. Enter the first name, last name, and e-mail for the sub-administrator

Note: If a sub-administrator was not set on sub-account creation you will instead edit the 'Administrator' email address, last name, and first name. The current details will be that of the primary administrator.

Warning: Make sure that the account you are changing is a sub-account and not the primary account. Changing the details for the primary account will make them the new primary administrator.


3. Click on Submit to assign the new sub-administrator
