How to manage users as a District Administrator

From within your Nearpod District Administrator page, you have the ability to manage your district's users. In this article you'll learn how to remove users, impersonate a user, edit user information, and grant certain admin permissions to specific users.

To get started, log into your Nearpod account and navigate to Manage District, then Manager Users. One you've arrived at the screen below, you're ready to manager users!


Remove Users

You can also “remove” a Nearpod user from your district subscription. By selecting this option, you will not be deleting their Nearpod account, they will simply be downgraded to the free version of Nearpod.

Impersonate Users

When you click “impersonate” you will impersonate the user’s account and be able to enter their Nearpod account as the user. This is a great option for helping users troubleshoot.



Edit Users

When you click on “Edit Users” in the Manage Users section, you will see a pop-up box similar to the image below. You are only able to edit individual users. This is not available in a bulk option.


As a District Administrator, you are able to edit the name of a user, update their password, change their “user” type to a user (teacher account), district admin, school admin, or student and change the user from one school site to another.

Managing Permissions

When you click on “Manage” under the “Permissions” section of the Manage Users section, you will see a pop-up box similar to the image below. You are only able to manage permissions for individual users. 


You can allocate “view only” or “full” permissions to certain aspects of your District Admin Dashboard to individual users. 

  • License Details: Allows the user to view the details of the purchased license
  • Manage Users: Allows the user to manage permissions of other users
  • School Usage Graphs: Allows the user to view a leaderboard of teacher usage
