How to Update an Email Address for a Person

You can access this feature from your MSL System Admin site. Only Super Admins with Membership Admins or Site Admins permissions can access the Person Contact Info window.


If the email address was entered incorrectly, it might also be awaiting confirmation since the user couldn't confirm it. In such cases, you can override the confirmation. For further information, see How to Override the Confirmation of a User's Email Address.
If you want the user to manually confirm their email, deselect the Override Confirmation checkbox on the Add Email Address dialog when updating it.


If an email address for a student in your data file is incorrect, contact the data controller to update the user's data. Once it's fixed, contact support@ukmsl.com to request we refresh the user's contact information from the data file itself.
