User Management

New in ME 1.22!

  • The ability to indicate a user's preferred personal pronoun (database setting enabled)

Elentra allows you to collect and store information about users in a variety of ways. Each user can have a basic profile (name, email, etc.) but you can configure Elentra to collect additional information using extended profile fields associated with specific departments.

Many institutions sync their user records with a centralized authoritative record of users which reduces the work of maintaining a user database.
