Similar to FlashPanel’s Deprovisioning Workflow, the User Provisioning Workflow gives you a series of steps that should be taken when provisioning a new user, such as:
- creating rich user profile information
- adding to the appropriate Org. Units
- adding as a member to any relevant Google Groups (in one step)
- setting up a company email signature, and more
If you frequently create users with the same attributes (such as contractors), you can use an existing user’s information as a template when provisioning a new user in this workflow. And if you need to create a number of new users, be sure to check out Bulk User Provisioning.
Use Provisioning Workflow FAQs
Can I use a template if I am creating a new user with similar settings to an existing user?
Yes. To use a template when creating a new user, first go to the “Directory” tab in FlashPanel then select “Users.” Click the gear icon at the top right of the screen and then choose “Create Users” and “Guided.” First enter the user’s name, email and password and continue to the next step. Here you should click “Time Saver” and search for the user who’s settings you wish to apply to the new user. Use this profile as a template and continue through the workflow.
Can I upload users in bulk?
Yes. To upload users in bulk, go to “Users” in the “Directory” tab then click the gear icon at the top right of the screen. Here select “Bulk.” You can proceed to import your own spreadsheet or use a preexisting template with title fields already completed.
