You can see the users that you have access to view and edit by clicking on the "Users" menu item on the left hand side:
To update a user's role, click on the menu item corresponding to the user's current role (i.e. to change an instructor's role, click on "Instructors"). Then type the name of the user in the "Simple Search."

The roles can be change under the "Roles" section of the user account. To remove a role, simply click on the "x" to remove the admin role.
Please note that "Admin", "User" and "A360 Staff" should never be removed.
To add a role, click on the "Add" button:
Select "District Admin", "School Admin" or "Instructor" and check the box next to what you want to find. If you want to search, you can click on the magnifying glass next to "Name" and then you can search by typing in whatever role you're looking for:
Once you've selected all of the roles that you need that user to have, click confirm to save those roles to the account.
