Changing an Instructor's User Type (Access)

Users with Admin Access can make limited changes in the User Type of other members of the teaching team associated with the SimUText. In particular, they can switch users with Co-Instructor Access to have Admin Access, and vice versa. For a description of the permissions associated with each User Type, go here.

To switch users between Admin and Co-Instructor Access:

  1. Find the user whose permissions you would like to change in the Assigned Instructor list at the top of the Instructors page.
  2. Click the Pencil (edit) button in the Access Level column for that instructor.
  3. Select the User Type you would like that instructor to have in the drop-down list.
  4. Click the Save button.

You will not be able to make any of the following changes:

  • change your own User Type
  • change the User Type of individuals (typically TAs) with Section-level or Read-Only access
  • downgrade an instructor with Admin or Co-Instructor Access to one of the lower access levels

If you need any of these changes made, please contact SimBio.
