Please note: If you learn that this email did not arrive in their inbox, ask them to check their "Junk" and "Deleted" email folders.

 

Edit SubUser information

Please note: The number of scoring credits available to that SubUser will be immediately adjusted to the number you specified. (Any unused complimentary scoring credits will remain available to the SubUser and added to this tally.) For example, if the SubUser was assigned 1 complementary scoring credit and 5 scoring credits (from your account) when you first registered them, a total of 6 scoring credits would be available to them, initially. However, if you decide that you need to use three of the scoring credits you assigned to that SubUser yourself, you can recover those uses by setting the SubUsers number of available uses to two. Three scoring credits would be returned to be available for you; and this SubUser would then have a total of three scoring credits available to him/her (two that you assigned, plus one complimentary scoring that was awarded to the SubUser when you first registered them as a SubUser of your account).

 

Lock/Unlock a SubUser's email address and password

Note: This is a feature you are likely to use if you will need to gain access to your SubUser's account--as is likely to be the case if the SubUser is one of your students. Once the SubUser's email address and password are "locked" the SubUser will be unable to reset them. so you will always be able to gain access to their account by using their "locked" email and "locked" password at the www.ensi.helpmetrics.ca login site. We recommend that you keep a record of any email addresses and passwords that you 'lock'.

1) Login to the ENSI at http://ensi.helpmetrics.ca.

2) When your homepage opens, click the "My Account" link on the toolbar

3) Click the SubUsers tab (if it is not highlighted in grey, indicating that it is already open)

4) Click the pencil icon to the left of the SubUser's name. This will open a form containing the SubUser's account information.

4) To lock that SubUser"s email address and/or password, click the "lock email" and "lock password" buttons and then click the "Save" button.

5 ) To unlock that SubUser's email address and/or password, click the "unlock email" and "unlock password" buttons, and then click the "Save" button.

 

Block/Unblock a SubUser's account

2) When your homepage opens, a spreadsheet listing all of your current SubUsers will be displayed.

3) All active SubUser accounts will have a green check mark on display to the left of the SubUser's name and the word "Active" (in green text) will appear as their "User State". All deactivated SubUser accounts will have a red circular button on display to the left of the SubUser's name and the word "Blocked" (in red text) will appear as their "User State"

4) To block that SubUser's account, click the green check mark icon. A red circular button will appear indicating that SubUser account has been deactivated. Red text will appear in the "User State" column indicating the SubUser's account has been "Blocked". To activate a SubUser account, click the red circular button.
