Field Description Authorized
If enabled (On), the user is immediately subscribed to the Registered User role and to other roles that have Auto Assignment enabled.
If disabled (Off), the user account is created but not authorized. An administrator must authorize the user account before the user can access areas of the website that are restricted to Registered User members.
If enabled (On), the system generates a random password. Otherwise, you must provide a password.
Password If the site is configured with password rules (e.g., minimum length), the initial password you assign must obey those password rules. Send An Email To New User If checked, the user is notified by email that the account is created. It can be checked at a later time to send the email belatedly.
Search for the user account.
Use the Search Users textbox to search by User Account fields, such as First Name, Last Name, User Name, or Email Address.
Filter the displayed accounts by type, using the Show dropdown.
