Bulk user actions

The bulk user actions view (ELIS Administration > Admin > Bulk user actions) lets you delete users or mark users as inactive in ELIS. 

You can select the users being edited from all ELIS users or filter the users and then select from the filtered list. There is a Select all button and a Deselect all button at the top left hand corner of the user list. Select all selects all users on the current page, but does not select all users from all pages.

To use a more advanced filter select the Show Advanced button in the filter section. The advanced filter lets you filter users by group, user set, program, active or inactive status, and other parameters.

Once the users being edited are selected, go to the bottom of the page and use the drop down menu to select the bulk edit action. Select the Submit button when everything is set correctly.

Note that you can mark students as inactive in bulk, but changing them back to active must be done one student at a time as described below.

Changing Inactive Users to Active

If you want to change users marked as inactive back to active, go to the Program Management block and select Users > Manage Users. By default, only active users are shown in the manage users screen. To find inactive users, use the advanced filter to search for inactive users.

Advanced filter options:
Selecting active/inactive

Example of filtered results showing inactive users:

Navigate to the user edit screen and deselect the Inactive checkbox for the user. It is the last setting before the custom fields section.
