Account

Overview

The account settings provide administrators the ability to modify all the global settings for the account. These settings affect all sites and users under an account unless a setting closer to the content (i.e., at the site, directory, or page level) overwrites it. Account settings in OU Campus are available on the Setup menu, which is only available to a Level 10 administrator.

From the OU Campus interface, to access the Account screen for account management features, navigate to Setup > AccountThe account settings in OU Campus match the account settings available within the Super Administration interface, which is available for self-hosted installations.

Creating a New Account

OU Campus can be provided as an self-hosted installation, which is a local server maintained by the institution, or provided as SaaS (software as a service). For self-hosted installations the Super Administration interface provides higher-level administrators access to add, modify, and remove accounts, sites, additional administrators, users, as well as view reports about those tasks. Administrators at the Super Administration level can create new accounts through the Super Administration interface.
