Applicable to: Institution Admin , College Admin and Department Admin
Step 1: Log into your AEFIS account
Step 2: Navigate to Admin Tools > User Accounts
Step 3: Use either the +Add Filter or the search bar to locate the desired user account
Step 4: Once the results display and the user you would like to login as is available on the results screen, navigate to the Actions column and select the Manage drop-down arrow to the right of that user's name - don't worry if you see the same user display multiple times - users are listed in the results for each unique AEFIS user role on their account
