The user edit dialog allows you to add new users or modify existing users. Users allow the software to enforce ownership of data items. With ownership the program insures that two users may not change each other's events. Every user has a unique userid and a password and may only edit his/her events. Users may be added as members of user groups and in email notification lists.

    This procedure will reassign the ownership of events owned by the old user to the new user.
