How do I disable a user account?

Disabling a user account blocks that user from being able to access the system. However, the user's data and activity are still retained in the system.

Note: Disabling an account is often preferable to removing a user account, as removing an account deletes all the user data for that user, including any grades, resources, and other user-related files or activity.
