This screen is used to create or maintain User accounts within Leo. There are a number of elements of the User record that are unique to Leo, and this screen is where you can manage those unique settings.
This screen also links a number of special functions to manage the the Groups, Roles, password, and other settings for the User, as well as a list of the User's (if they are a Student) Courses and Roster history.
One of the most important settings within the User screen is the definition of the User's primary Role. There are three main options:
- Student - Users with this designation will be locked out of all administrative functions, irrespective of other settings.
- Staff - Users with this setting have limited administrative access unless directly linked to a Course or Event
- Faculty - Faculty have limited administrative access unless they are in the Role of Course Director or Instructor for an Event
NOTE: The options available depend on the type of User record being edited. There are options available for Students that are not required for Staff or Faculty, and vice-versa.
Fill out the required fields (*), on this page.

Define User Roles

- To assign a Role, click a link in the Available Roles column to move it to the Selected column on the right.
- You can remove a Roles by clicking the link in the Selected Roles column, moving it to the column on the left.
- When are you done, click the small black square located at the top right corner of the screen to save and close the screen.
Roles are used to quickly assign Users to a set of Groups that will give them the proper security level and Group memberships required for them to perform their duties.
Roles are like labels, and are used to quickly assign Users. Each Role in Leo has a list of Groups assigned to it. When you assign a User to a Role, the User is given Group Membership to all the Groups associated with that Role. It is basically a tool to automate the assignment of Users to large numbers of Groups.
TIP: There is no confirmation message upon adding a new User to Leo. If you are unsure about whether or not Leo saved your new User account, return to the User Management screen and search for the new User's name.
In this example, Holly Jung is a Staff member. From is User Management screen, she can be assigned to Groups and Roles and well as many other functions.
Should a User no longer have access to log into Leo, deactivating the Account will be necessary.
Use caution when choosing to make a User account inactive.
- To make an account inactive, set the Active field to No.
- After selecting the appropriate choice, click Save User Record.
Note: If the Active Field on the User Management is set to NO, the User will no longer be granted access to Leo.
Use caution when choosing to delete a User's account or make them inactive.
- Set the Deleted field to Yes.
- Click Save User Record.
NOTE: If deleted, a User's past information will no longer show in historical reports, if this information needs to remain intact, make the User Inactive instead.
