If you build it, users will come! Now it’s time to add some users. Here’s a great video explaining adding users individually or in bulk.
The quick overview: • To add one user at a time, go into Users, Active Users and select the + icon at the top of the screen, which opens the add user wizard • To add a group, you can use a plain text .CSV to build your list of names. From the Active Users screen, select the bulk upload icon, which is found next to the + icon. The form provides samples and a blank .CSV file which you can modify, save, and then upload into the bulk uploader
Password resets will take place when users create accounts to replace temps Here’s a quick video to walk you through the process.
