Manually adding users

Manually adding users

Users can be created manually. This is the simplest and quickest way to add a small number of users, but if you need to add a lot of users then other approaches should be taken.

Moodle documentation on adding users can be found here

1. From the Site administration menu, select Users > Accounts > Add a new user

2. You will be presented with a list of fields to fill in, some optional some required. The required fields are marked with a red asterisk.

Some fields must be unique, such as the Username field.

If creating an account for someone else - rather than your own test account, for example - then you should tick the 'force password change' checkbox. This will mean that when the first log in using the password you set, they will be forced to update it to something only they know.

3. Once you have filled in the users details, select Create user at the bottom of the page.

The page will indicate any required fields that have been missed, or fields that have been filled out incorrectly (if any) - amend those and select Update profile again.
