Creating a New User

Here are the steps for creating a new user:

  1. Go to Security | Manage Users
  2. Click on the "New User" button
  3. Fill in all desired fields (you must supply a username, password, and email address)
  4. Check the "Active" checkbox unless you will be requiring the user to perform some task to become active
  5. Click on the Save button at the upper right

Tip: If you forget to activate users, you can do so by checking the checkbox next to each user on the Manage Users panel, clicking on the "Bulk Actions" button, and selecting "Activate Selected" in the drop-down menu.
