PIE, Adding users

Publish Site Administrators can add users to various roles within their websites.

Site administrators can add new users to their site very easily.

  1. Go to your site’s Dashboard
  2. Go to Users
  3. Go to Add New
  4. If someone is already a user on publish.illinois.edu, use the “Add Existing User” form at the top. If someone is brand new to publish.illinois.edu, use the “Add New User” form at the bottom. If you are adding someone who is at the University of Illinois, you should use their @illinois.edu email address as both their username and their email address.
