Create a User Account

An Office 365 tutorial by Peter Kalmström

Office 365 logo In this demo Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of Business Solutions, shows how to add a user account to Office 365.

Note that to add a user account, you should have an administrator role.

These are the steps to add a user to Office 365:
  1. 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.)
  2. On the Admin center home page, click on the Users icon in the left panel, select Active users and then click on the 'Add a user' button.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

When you have many users, you don't want to add them to Office 365 one by one. In the next article, Peter will show how to create accounts for multiple Office 365 users at the same time.
