Click on User Admin from the Common Tasks Portlet on the homepage.
Alternatively, navigate to the Menu and click on Organisation & Users.
Hover over the Unit name you want to add the User to, and select the +User button.
Complete the form with the User's details, ensuring the Username and Email Address is unique. Leave the Password and Confirm Password fields blank to create a secure system generated password.
If the user has an addition system role, such as an Administrator, Content Creator or Report Administrator, tick the appropriate role. For a default user with no additional system permissions, leave all roles unticked.
For further details about what each role can do, please see the What are System Roles guide.
You can also choose a different default language option for your User by clicking on the Language dropdown menu.
This will set the language that the LMS is displayed in.
Click on Next.
You will be taken to the Confirmation page where you can review the details you have entered. If anything is incorrect, click on Previous button at the bottom of the page to return to Step 1.
To send the new user their Username and temporary password link, tick the box at the bottom of the page.
Alternatively, if you are setting up a lot of new Users at the same time, you may prefer to leave this box blank and then set up an email reminder to go out to them at the same time, welcoming them to the system. See create a welcome email to new users if you would like to know how to do this.
When you are happy with the details, click on Finish.
If you selected the email option the User will receive an email with the system generated password which they will be prompted to change when they log in.
