Clearing Locks for Multiple Personnel Accounts

A personnel account becomes locked when a person enters an incorrect password too many times in a row. The district administrator sets the number of attempts allowed using the Set Login Attempts Allowed preference. Personnel with locked accounts cannot log in again until the lock has been cleared or until midnight, when the account unlocks automatically.

District personnel can unlock accounts for any personnel. School administrators can unlock accounts for personnel in their school.

If you are a school administrator and you have access to more than one school, select the school to work in before following these steps. To do this, on the Home page, select your name at the top; then, select Change Role in the menu that opens. You can then choose the school to work in.

Who can do this with default capabilities?
