Managing Users

There are two areas involving user management in WebAdMIT for AMCAS:

  • Admissions Users are created to give access to colleagues.
  • Work Groups allow administrators to establish permissions and viewing rights for their Admissions Users.


WebAdMIT for AMCAS users log in using their AAMC credentials. New users need to create an AAMC account and have a WebAdMIT administrator create an Admissions User account in WebAdMIT for AMCAS using the same email address.

Gaining Access to This Feature

The Admissions Users feature is available under the Management panel and access to this tool is controlled through Work Groups. You must have the Manage Users and Work Groups permission to create and edit admission users' accounts.

Adding a New User

  1. Using the Menu Bar, open the Management panel, then click Admissions Users.
  2. Click New User.
  3. Enter the new user’s information. First Name, Last Name, and Email are required fields.
  4. Identify the user's role, if applicable.
    • The Title/position field does not provide any additional functionality, but may be useful for internal reporting.
    • The Primary User checkbox has no current functionality.
    • The Institution Manager checkbox gives additional management functionality in WebAdMIT for AMCAS. Review the Institution Manager Role section for more details.
    • If available in your CAS, the Config. Portal Live Editing Access checkbox allows users to change program attributes and select Question Rules for active and closed programs. Visit the Update Your Approved Program page in the CAS Configuration Portal Help Center for more information.
  5. Select a Work Group, as this is what controls what permissions the user will have. The WebAdMIT Administrators Work Group, available by default, gives the user full access to all management functions in WebAdMIT for AMCAS.
  6. Select the program(s) the user needs access to under Program Assignments; this is what controls which groups of applicants the user will see. You can batch check/uncheck all programs.
    • If desired, select Make this item available for all new programs that are added to WebAdMIT to automatically activate any programs added mid-cycle through the Configuration Portal. You will still need to manually activate any programs that existed before selecting this checkbox.
  7. Click Submit to save or click Return to Admissions Users to discard the changes.

The user will receive a system-generated email prompting them to create a password. Remember that passwords must be a minimum of ten characters and contain at least one number or special character. Passwords consisting of common keyboard patterns or limited to common words are not allowed.
