The administrator may do this for a participant, by logging into the Participant Control Panel from People -> Participants -> Actions, Login . From the Participant Control Panel , follow these instructions:
1. Look for the participant's name in the upper right hand corner. Put your cursor over the name and a menu should appear. Click on ' Group Management '
2. On the next screen, the Participant Status will be listed.
