Institute administrator guide/1 User administration/Manage users/Suspend users
The Mahara user manual moved to http://manual.mahara.org
Whilst Mahara provides a secure personal learning environment, any system with discussion forums and other social networking functionality can be open to misuse. To tie in with your own local user policies and expected codes of conduct for students and staff, Mahara has the facility to suspend and, ultimately, remove users from the system in cases of repeated misuse.
Whilst in User Search, select relevant user and a Suspend User box becomes visible. Here you can explain why the user has been suspended and when their account will be reactivated. This message will appear on their next attempt to login.
Go to Suspended Users for a list of users pending removal (for repeated misuse) or reinstatement to the system.
Note – This suspension and removal procedure should also be followed if you wish to remove users from Mahara who were incorrectly added - rather than selecting remove from the bottom of the user’s screen.
