  2. Click Create user.
  3. Complete the compulsory fields (marked with an asterisk).
  4. Select Expand all from the top-right-hand side of the page to view all available fields for the user profile.
  5. Select Save and view to save the new user and go to their profile, or Save and go back to save the new user and return to the list of users.
Note that enabling the Generate password and notify user setting when creating user accounts will cause an email to be sent to the users.
