Giving a use admin rights

I need to give a user Admin rights. According to the ACT help text, I should be able to go to Tools> Manage Users > Security Roles to make this change. Following the directions below, I find I don't HAVE an option for Security Role List on the menu. Does anyone know why this is?

 

From the Tools menu, click Manage Users.

  1. On the Select a User page, from the list, select the user.
  2. Under User Tasks, click Edit User Information.
  3. On the Edit User Information page, make changes to the user's profile. (See options below.)
  4. Click Next, or if you are done, click Finish.

 

Edit User Information page

 

You can make changes to the user's profile, such as:

  • Change the user's log-on name: In the User Name field, type a new user name.
  • Change the user's access role: From the Security Role list, select an access role.

Assuming you are logged on as an Administrator...

 

Tools -> Manage Users.

 

Highlight the user you want to change.

 

Select Edit User Information

 

On the drop down for Secuity Role: change to Administrator

 

Finish, Close

I AM the Administrator. Security Role is not even on the list of options when i select Edit User.

 

Refer to the linked image. http://www.electronicsigns.com/images/user.jpg

 

The option isn't even AVAILABLE to me.

Yes it is... I can just see it on the far right of the image you attached. It's not listed in the Manage User Tasks section. It's a drop down to the right of it in the main panel.
