This category is meant exclusively for local administrators within a school's network. Local administrators are users with special permissions in the network:
- They have access to what is called the Admin Console, which lets them perform a number of operations involving user accounts and change communication rules. The main operations admins can perform include:
o Viewing the accounts of users that have already been uploaded for a particular school or project.
o Recovering and distributing usernames and activation codes.
o Adjusting document quotas based on user needs.
o Resetting passwords if users forget.
o Manually creating and managing accounts to meet specific needs.
o Managing and creating manual groups to make sharing easier.
o Replacing default options with customized communication rules to better support the school’s needs and uses.
o Assigning or withdrawing access rights to applications.
o Inserting links and connectors to the MY APPS page and assigning access rights to these links and connectors.
o Revealing or hiding Widgets on the homepage.
o Importing and updating user data
- Local administrators can respond to users’ requests for help and support through the Assistance service.
