Add a new user made simple

The latest v9.1 Active CMS allows us to copy and save existing elements in the system manager units. When a new member needs added to the system with the correct access rights, follow these instructions:

  1. You must be logged in with Site Manager rights From the System menu, select the User Manager.
  2. Find an account that has the same or similar rights that you wish the new person to have. Select their name from the list (all, at the end of the alpha or the initial of their last name.
  3. At the top of the users information page, click "Save and Copy" Edit the elements to create the user account.
  4. At the top of the page is the 'Active' checkbox, check this to activate the account as required
  5. Save.
  6. Log out and log in with the new account variables and ensure it works.
  7. Check the page access and go to edit mode on a page to ensure the correct tools and pagetypes are available.
  8. Email the new user information on how to change their password and editor and sign them up for training if not already done.

This can be applied to creating new Groups and Workflows.

If you are creating a new user from the Add a User button, you can put the user into their group from the tab at the bottom of the screen.
