Improved user creation workflow for administrators
Reduce data entry by cloning an existing user. Administrators can now create users more easily and efficiently using the new Duplicate button which copies an existing user's access and permission details to a new user.
To create a new user based on an existing one:
- On the Users list, select an existing user who has similar permissions and access rights to those required by the new user.
- Click Duplicate on the user details page. This displays the Add user page with all the original user's Security details retained, the name and username fields blank, and the status set to Inactive.
- Enter the new user's details in the blank fields, and make any required edits to the copied details. (You can't save until all the required details are entered and pass validation.)
- Click Save. An automated email is sent to the new user's email address with a link for them to activate the account.
Note: The account being duplicated must have the same or lower level of access rights than the administrator, and the administrator can't duplicate their own account.
