Deactivating Users

Why deactivate instead of delete?

Delete a User if he will never be associated with the website again. Note: this will remove all records of that user's activity in page versions and ownership.

Deactivate a User if she will temporarily lose her association with the website. For instance, you might want to do deactivate a User if she’s on an extended vacation OR if you want to preserve a historic record of what they did on the site.

Steps for deactivating a User

  1. Go to Dashboard > Users > Users.

  2. Click on the Username of the User you want to deactivate.

    If you need help finding a user, review the Finding Users lesson.

  3. Press the Deactivate User button.
