Overview

This article will show you how to add a user. You can add a user to a front-end group or a back-end group depending on what the user will have permissions to.

 

Important Note

If the user already has an account on the CivicPlus Platform, you will not have to create an additional username and password for their CivicEngage account. Available user fields will only include First Name, Last Name, Email Address, and Photograph.
