In addition to managing the press web site, the Press Manager is also responsible for all of the user accounts in the system.
To view the user accounts, select Users & Roles from the left menu.
Users are displayed in last name order.
You can edit a user account by selecting the blue arrow to the left of an entry.
This opens the options to Email, Edit User, Disable, Remove, Login As, or Merge User.
**Email **opens a window allowing you to quickly send a message to that user.
**Edit User **allows you to make changes to that user’s account.
**Disable **keeps the account in place, but blocks the user from accessing it.
**Remove **clears the user account out of your press records and the user can no longer login, but the account remains in the system.
**Login As **allows you to temporarily log in as that user, for example, to complete an outstanding task.
**Merge User **lets you fold this user account, including any submissions or assignments, into another user account on your system.
Note: This is the only way to completely delete an account from the system.
You may want to create a dummy user account (e.g., Deleted Users), and use that to merge unwanted accounts into.
When you have a large number of users, you will want to take advantage of the search feature.
This can help you quickly find a user when you know a first name, a last name, or some other piece of information.
Note: If you leave the Search field blank, select a Role, and hit Search, you will get a list of all users in that role (e.g., all Press editors).
To add a new user to your press, select the Add User link. This will open a new window with a set of fields to fill in.
Once these fields are completed and you hit Save, you will then be asked to assign roles to the new account. Use the _Add Role _link to open the role selector.
Once you have added all of the roles, hit the **Save **button.
