Deactivating users on a virtual mentoring platform is a straightforward process that ensures control and security over user accounts. By deactivating a user, you can effectively restrict their access to the platform, preventing them from logging in and participating in mentoring activities. This article will guide you through the step-by-step process of deactivating users, and also shed light on the impact it has on the user's experience when they attempt to log in after deactivation. By understanding how to effectively deactivate users, you can maintain a safe and well-managed virtual mentoring environment.
Once a user is deactivated, their login attempts trigger a notification, informing them about the deactivation status of their account.
However, even when deactivated, the platform retains the user's interactions and data, allowing for potential reactivation if they decide to return to the mentoring program.
For assistance with concluding a program cycle that entails deactivating or deleting members, we recommend consulting the following article: Ending a Program Cycle.
Deactivate a Single User
1.0 To deactivate a user, click the "Admin" tab on the left-hand side of the page.
1.1 Click on the
Members tile located on the second row of the administrator dashboard.
1.2 From here, look for the “is active” checkbox.
1.3 If your browser is at a zoom of 100 % or more, you will not be able to see that column. Make it 90% to 80% OR, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and use the scroll bar to move the table.
1.4 Once you see the “is active” checkbox, uncheck the box to make the user inactive. There is no confirm button, once you uncheck the box, the user is made inactive immediately.
