TIM Tools 6.1 Administration Guide

Profile Screen

 

Members who would like to edit their own personal or demographic information or who would like to change their password should select the Profile tab in the Teacher Center. This will open the Profile screen.

Figure 1. The tab for the Profile screen is located under the Teacher Center menu.

Members can make the following changes to their own profiles:

Editing names. Change the first or last name in the text fields and then click the Save Personal Information button.

Changing password. Enter a new password twice in the appropriate text fields and then click the Change Password button.

Updating demographic information. Members can enter their own demographic information here. This information is available systemwide and will prepopulate the appropriate section of the TUPS saving members from having to re-enter the same information each time they take the TUPS.

Note that the member Profile screen is a part of the Teacher Center, so if the Teacher Center is disabled for a particular role, those members will also lose access to the Profile screen. Members without Profile screen access will still be able to reset passwords via the logon screen and any demographic they add or edit within a TUPS will be saved to their user’s profile as usual.
