Adding a user to the CMS is an easy process that is accomplished through the Users/Groups Manager.


Access to the Administration pane in the CMS client.


  1. In the Administration Pane, click the Users/Groups tab. This opens the Users/Groups Manager.
  2. In the Users tab, click New User.
  3. Enter values for the following:
    • User ID: A user name
    • User name: A friendly name
    • Email: The address to which email within the CMS will be sent.
  4. Optional: Check the Receive Workflow Notifications check box if you want the user to receive workflow notifications.
  5. To add the new user to one or more groups, click the Member of tab and drag the desired groups from the right-hand column to the Group name column.

    Note: Users who don't belong to a group have no permissions and, as such, cannot see the user interface in the CMS client.

  6. Click Save.
