Learn how to search for a user and assign them roles in the Admin module.
In order for your users to perform actions in the system, you must assign them roles. Users can have multiple roles assigned to them. Added roles will be applied the next time the user signs into WorldShare.
Search for a user
- On the left navigation, under User Management, select an index from the Limit search to list.
- Enter your search terms. You must enter at least two characters for the search to return results.
- Click Search or press <Enter>.
- From the search results, click a user name to open the record.
- Available search indexes - Table
|Name, ID, Email
Search terms entered for this index return results based on the following:
- Name: Last name, First name, Middle name, or preferred name
- ID: Barcode, User ID at Source, ILL Identifier, or PPID
- Email Address: Email address located in the Library Record area of the Basic User Data accordion for the user
Values searched upon for the name and email address in the Name, ID, Email index may generate slightly different results than the individual Name and Email index.
- The Name, ID, Email index takes a single token from the user input and compares with a left-handed match of a searchable value
- The individual Name and Email index searches allow multiple tokens to be passed, separated by spaces.
