The Add User option allows you to create an individual user on your site and populate all of their details without necessarily sending them an invitation.

  • To add multiple users to your site at once, you can use the Invite Users option.
In the Add User modal, you can add email, name, company, and user type via the Essentials tab. At the bottom, you can toggle on or off the Send Invite option.

The other tabs in the modal allow you to add additional information about the user. You can use the Permissions tab to set the user's profile permissions.

Note: When using the Add User option, you will need to grant project access separately, via the user's profile.
