Users management

Users creation

Users cannot register for an account, space managers must create the user for their space if user does not already have an account (they will receive a temporary password by email). If user already have an account, he can request to join the space via the web interface (Join button).

Create/add a user as a space admin

If you want to directly link a user to a specific space or if you are space admin, not superadmin, you can create a new user or add an existing user to your space from within a space by going into Users module in your space homepage.
