How to edit your SubUsers’ registration information

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

2) When your homepage opens, click the “My Account” link on your toolbar.

3) Click the SubUsers tab (if it is not already highlighted). A spreadsheet listing all of your current SubUsers will be displayed.

3) Click the pencil icon to the left of the name of the SubUser whose information you wish to edit. A page listing all of the SubUser’s information is displayed.

4) Select and delete the information in any text box you wish to alter and then type in the new information.

 How to assign scoring credits to an existing SubUser

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

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

3) Click the pencil icon to the left of the name of the SubUser of interest

4) In the “Please set new uses count for” text box, specify the total number of scoring credits you want to be available to the SubUser at this point in time

5) Click the “Set New Uses Count” button.

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).
