Editing Identities

To edit one of your identities, select Manage identities from the Identity Menu drop-down, then click the pen and paper icon beneath the identity you wish to edit. Remember: teachers must approve all student identity edits, and pending identities cannot be edited. 

Tip: Your default identity—the identity active on sign-in—is the last identity you edited. To change your default identity, simply edit the identity you wish to set as your default identity.
