As a super administrator, you can opt to add users to your community — singly or by bulk. It's important that you know the feedback the user gets after adding, so you can guide the user through the process.
How to Add a User
To add users separately and in succession,
- Click [Community] on the left-hand sidebar

Use the bulk upload function if there are many users to be added.
To start, click the [Bulk upload] box.

After adding a user, the user gets an email.
