Create a User Account
An Office 365 tutorial by Peter Kalmström
In this demo in the Office 365 from Scratch series Peter
Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business
Solutions, shows how to add a user account to Office 365.
Note that to add a user account, you should have an Administrator
These are the steps to add a user to Office 365:
- Click on the Admin button in the Office 365 portal,
or click on the App Launcher in the top left corner
and select the Admin button there. (If you don't see
the Admin button, you probably don't have enough permission
on Office 365.)
- On the Admin center home page, click on 'Add a user'
under the Users heading. You can also click on the Users
icon in the left panel, select ‘Active users’ and then
click on the 'Add a user' button.
- Enter the name, display name and user name and select
country for the new user in the pop-up dialog that opens.
You can also add contact details and select password
creation method, role and licenses.
- Click on the 'Add' button, and the user account
will be created. When this is done, details for the
user will be shown on the screen, and you can decide
if you want to have the password sent by e-mail.
- Now you can directly perform other steps, like adding
the user to a group or adding another user. You can
also do this later via the Users icon in the left panel
of the Admin homepage.
