Creating several users

previous  Top  next

WebUntis provides a function to Create users from the teacher or student list. You can find this function in the user administration view that you can access via the <User administration> button under <Administration> | <Users>.





Create users for teachers


The function goes through all teachers in WebUntis and creates a user for each teacher with the same short name as the teacher abbreviation. Users are assigned to the user group that you have selected.

If an e-mail address was defined in the teacher master data, it will be copied for the user.


You can define, if the short name, first name, surname, date of birth or personnel number should be used. You can also generate user names with delimiter.


German umlauts can be converted by the respective option, e.g. 'ü' is then spelled 'ue'.



Create users for students


This application works in the same way as for teachers. You have the additional option here of only creating users for students to whom a class has been assigned.



Note: Creating several times

The <Create users> function can be selected as often as you wish. Existing users will not be affected.


Assign generated password


Optionally, the password field for the new users can remain empty, can be created according to the date of birth or you can generate a random password for each user. Newly created passwords are displayed on the screen and can be printed or saved to a file.

The passwords will also be sent to you via an internal message. You can also make the users change the generated password at their first login due to security reasons.



Lock the users of inactive or resigned persons


Users of former teachers or students who are inactive or resigned can be locked via this function.



Adopt external key for user


If an external key is assigned to a teacher or student, it can be adopted for the user, as well, with this function.



Copy the person's e-mail address to the user


If an e-mail address is assigned to the teacher or student it can be copied to the user with this function.
