Identify Inactive users

Take a close look at the list and identify the users that no longer need access.


Deactivate Inactive Users

Enter the user profile of any user that is no longer active and select the Deactivate button.

 


Reactivating an Account

If a team member needs access to the database and their account has been deactivated by mistake, they can easily be reactivated by looking up their account in the Users tool.
