If you access the LMS via Workspace, please see the guide Create a User Account on the LMS via Workspace.
Play the video below if you would prefer to see how to do this.
Navigate to Organisation and Users via the Menu or click on User Admin from the Common Tasks Portlet on the homepage.
Click the three dots menu next to the Organisation Unit you want to add the new User to, and click + User.
Complete Step 1 of the wizard 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 additional system role, such as an Administrator, Content Creator or Reporting Administrator, tick the appropriate role. For a default User with no additional system roles, leave all roles unticked. System roles can be updated from within the User's profile after they have been created, so it's not essential that you know this information at this stage.
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.
In Step 2, review the details you have entered. If anything is incorrect, click Previous 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 creating 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 to see how to do this.
When you are happy with the details, click on Finish.
Note: 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.
