Adding a user is a relatively simple task, but due to the fact that roles must be assigned to users, and due to the fact that different roles may have different permissions that can severely affect an entire site, only site managers and architects may add users to a site, globally.

To add a user to a site, just do the following:

Go to Admin menu > People >  Add CAS user.

Enter the user's ONID username in the CAS username field. You can add more than one person at a time, just put each ONID username on its own line, as shown below.

Click the Create New Account(s) button.

You will receive a confirmation message that your people have been added to the site.

If a person already exists on the site, you will receive a message that the user already exists and be provided a link to their profile.

If you will be adding this user to an Organic Group, please stop here and go to our Add A Group Member article to learn how to add a user into a group.

To get to a new user's account page, you can click on their name. If you're working with more than one person, however, such as in our example, you may prefer to go to the User List.

Go to Admin Menu > People.

Once on the User List, click on header of the Member For column to sort users by the most recently added.

Locate your first person and click on their respective edit link.

Give your user a Role and then click Save.
