Edit User data

The Edit user data form allows each user many options in terms of identifying themselves to others and receiving information from the moodle server.


Edit User Data Fields in SQL database

Some moodle managers may like to acces the SQL database directly to set options for all users at once e.g. change authentication. Some may set some options for all users and then disable the code in moodle that allows them to be changed back e.g. Set all email addressses to "Hide my email address from everyone" and then disable the drop down box that allows this setting to be changed. This may be necessary in many schools where it is unsuitable to allow users to see "home" email addresses for other users or teachers.
