Every individual registered with a User Profile on Currinda is a USER. Every administrator, delegate, manager and member is a User in the Currinda system.
Every User owns one single User Profile (controlled by their email address) across the entire Currinda system.
Within your own single User Profile, you can be a member of multiple organisations/societies, register for multiple events, submit & review abstracts, enter awards or judge award applications, and hold roles of administator, convenor or committee member.
Note: The Users tab in the Vertical menu provides a range of Administrator functions. These functions relate strictly to the event or membership of a given User. An individual User Profile cannot be altered by a 3rd party admin.
Special instructions for merging Users can be found here.
