How to edit an existing user

I'm trying to add a user and it says the email address is already in use, what do I do?

If you are trying to add a new user and the system says the email address is in use but you don't see them in the user list typically they were either deactivated at some point or they were set up as a Guest user (Requester). To locate and update the user you can take the following steps. Admins and department admins can currently edit users, if you do not have access to the Admin section follow up with your portal administrator to update your credentials.
