GLOBE Partners - Multiple ways to search for your users

So here we are in the middle of the the GLOBE teacher migration and I get a call from a teacher who has participated in Elementary GLOBE in the past and is ready to begin reporting data. I've got her on the phone and I've pulled up my control panel. I search for her name and nada! I look up the record of her workshop - there she is! In the workshop roster she is associated with her school but if I go to the school's organization page then she isn't listed. Ack! What's going on?

Jon helped me track down this teacher's "here I am, now I'm gone" account and showed me a couple of handy tools for searching for users.

In control panel, when you are searching through the users list, the drop down option "ACTIVE" allows you to set the search for active users or inactive users. In this case, something was wrong with the teacher's account (probably her email bounced back as bad) and the system deactivated her. By selecting to view unactive users I was able to hunt her down and activate her account.

The other button that Jon pointed out which I think will turn out to be very handy is in the same user search. "USER GROUP" allows us to search for teachers, trainers, affiliates, etc!

These two tools are going to be very helpful with making sense of the migrated records.

Thanks Jon!
