Tip Tuesday – Adding Users

Tip Tuesday – Adding Users

Welcome back to Tip Tuesday! This week we will be talking about the tips and tricks to adding users. Whether you are a manager or an administrator, you have the ability to add new users. However there are two ways that you can add a user: the green add button at the top and the blue add button by each user (see below picture).

The green add button that says “Add new user” will simply add a new user with no properties so that you can start from scratch. However if you have a specific setup that your company follows for each user then you would want to select the blue add button. This button will add a new user with all of the same properties as the user next to the blue button you selected. The only difference between the two users would be that the new “copied” user will have no information in the general information tab.

When you add a new user there are some key points that you need to fill out before submitting the new user. You will need to have a first name, last name, a unique username, and a password. The next, and most important thing, that you need to do is select the correct home department for that user. If you are a manager and you choose a different home department from the one you manage or if you select no home department, then upon submitting the new user you will not be able to see the user anymore. They will disappear from your view and you will have to contact your admin to change the users home department. This is also important for admins to remember because if they do not select a home department or if they select the wrong home department then the manager will not be able to see the employee even though the admin can.

From this point everything else is optional and can be left alone or edited for each companies preferences.
