New admin interface--add Description to User screen

Implemented feature idea or fixed bug
Jeremy Walker

The new user screen looks and works fabulously.  Much cleaner!

Unfortunately, it doesn't include the Description for a student:

whereas BrainHoney did:

If you could add that information on this new user screen and as a column for the list of users so that one could sort or filter by this information, that would be a huge asset.

Thanks for considering this request.

Jeremy, I am not sure why or how I missed including this in last week's release notes, but you can now view/edit a user's description in the User details. It will only display if there is a description, which can be added by selecting Edit in the toolbar.

Some follow-up questions about the User Description.

  • If information is added to this field, does that display anywhere else in the system?
  • Who can see the User Description?
  • Who can add/edit the User Description?

We are thinking of some possible uses for this field, but just want to know who can see the information that we put into that field?

Hey Burt:

Currently this field is only available to users who have access/rights to the admin app to view and edit users. Though keep in mind that while end users currently do not see this description applied to their user, it could become available to do so in the future. So, a user will want to enter text within this field that they would feel comfortable for the end user to see if it ever becomes available to do so.
