User Account

An account gives each user a unique identity on the platform. There are a few things regular users can do regarding their account:

  • Create an account - An account can be created through a signup process, or by the manager of the platform. The username, email address and password for an account can always be changed even after creation. 

  • Log in - After an account is created, you can log in with your username or email address combining with the corresponding password.

  • Reset password - The password can be reset in case users forget it.

  • Privacy settings - Users can decide whether other users can see their email addresses.

  • Cancel account - Users can cancel their accounts from the platform.

Site managers are also able to control the account settings for other users. See in User Management.
