Guest Accounts

If your institution has Guest Accounts enabled, you'll see "Guest Accounts" as an option in the drop down menu on the upper-left of the page. This page allows institutional admins to quickly view and edit all Guest Accounts, and to create new ones.

Sorted by Last Name, the Guest Account page shows name, email, and registration status for all of an institution's guest accounts.

Edit Guest Accounts

Clicking "Edit Guest Account" will open a properties pane. This pane allows institutional administrators to edit name and email fields for a guest account, or to remove the account by clicking "Remove Guest Account".

Add New Guest Account

If you're an institutional administrator, you can create guest accounts as needed. Guest accounts aren't part of your institution's Single Sign-On system. Instead, they're accounts tied to particular email addresses, and managed through Warpwire's Admin Panel.

To create a new Guest Account, click the "Add Guest Account" link in the upper-right of the admin panel.

A pane will open on the right. Fill out the new user's First and Last name, along with their email address.

When you click Save, the guest account is created. However, the user won't be automatically notified of their new account.

Direct the user to the login page. In order to customize their password, they'll need to use the "Forgot Password" link before their first login in order to set a new password.

After clicking "Forgot Password" and entering their email address, they'll recieve an email with a link to (re)set their password.

Once this password is set, they'll be able to log in normally.
