Creating new user accounts is one of the most time-consuming tasks for an admin, and often key steps are skipped to save time. Equipping a new hire with access to groups and services will ensure that he or she can get up and running immediately.

- Create a new user account and generate a password
- Mirror another user in a similar role and auto-fill shared contact information
- Add the new user to appropriate Org. Unit and groups
- Apply an email signature and send a welcome email
Navigate to Directory > Users > Create Users > Bulk. Then, just follow the steps to fill in the provided spreadsheet template with users’ account information and upload the completed spreadsheet back into FlashPanel.
