Create a new user account

The following steps explain how to create a new user account on your SimpleDocs system. Note that only users with the "User account admin" permission flag have access to create or edit user accounts.

  1. Click "Users" on the main menu at the top of the screen.
  2. Below the list of existing users click the link labelled "Add new user".
  3. Enter the Name, Email address and Position (optional) of the new user into the text fields.
  4. Tick any permission flags that you would like the user to have access to. Rolling your mouse over the flags will provide further explanation of each flag.
  5. Click "Save".

The new user will receive an email containing a link which requests that they enter their desired password. Once a password has been chosen they can login and start using SimpleDocs.

By default the user will only have access to any folders that allow "All users" permission. To allow the user into additional folders see the following article: Change who can access folders (folder permissions).
