What is the difference between a User Name and User ID?

User IDs may be University Registry numbers or other identifying numbers or codes assigned to students, whereas a User Name is required for logging in. Because User IDs may be confidential, a privacy setting exists in the Server Configuration tab of the Admin pages which allows these characters to be concealed in all student experiment sessions. If a password has not yet been assigned to a new student, they will be required to verify their User Name with their associated User ID when signing into LabTutor for the first time, before being prompted to create a password.

This information is valid for LabTutor v4.0 and later.
