ELIS 1.9 Manual

ELIS Users

The user management screen in ELIS is similar to Moodle's user management screens, but adds more information to the user profile, such as Group/Cluster, curriculum, active/inactive, etc. Also, since ELIS 1.8.7, the users a person views in the ELIS Manage User's screen is determined by their role in ELIS - users with the right roles in ELIS can see only 'their' users in Manage Users - e.g. an administrator of a cluster can see only the users of her cluster in the Manage Users screen.

Note: all users in Moodle that have an id number are automatically created in ELIS. ELIS will also automatically add an id number to Moodle users who lack one if this is set in the admin folder configuration screen. The next page has instructions for turning this feature on and off.

From the user management screen you can add new users, edit existing users, or search for ELIS users with the filter. To perform a more advanced search, select the Show Advanced button in the filter section. From the advanced filter you can filter users by group/cluster name, curriculum, active/inactive, and by ELIS custom profile fields.

Advanced filter options:

By default the manage users screen only shows active users. Use the "Show Inactive" select filter, shown in the image above, to find inactive users.

When searching for users of a group, cluster, or curriculum with the select filter - the filter has the following options in the drop down menu:
  • is any value - this option disables the filter (i.e. all information is accepted by this filter)
  • is equal to - this option allows only information that is equal to the value selected from the list
  • is not equal to - this option allows only information that is different from the value selected from the list
Select the Add user button on the Manage Users screen to add new users. When you add/edit an ELIS user, you can include information about the users transfer credits, language, your comments and notes about the user, whether they are active or inactive, and ELIS custom profile fields.

ELIS users marked as inactive will not show up in ELIS reports.

Below the user search filter is the user overview screen. On this screen is a list of users in ELIS. If the filter is used, only the users included in the search will be listed here.

Manage users screen

Clicking the icons next to each user will enable various actions related to the user. For example, clicking the user report icon will show a report of all the user's classes and the user's status in those classes.
