Adding New Users

Available in: Contact Manager, Group, Professional, Enterprise, Unlimited, Developer, and Database.com Editions

User Permissions Needed
To create new users:“Manage Users”

The maximum number of users you can create is determined by your Edition:

Salesforce EditionMaximum Users
Personal1
Contact Manager5
Group10
ProfessionalUnlimited
EnterpriseUnlimited
UnlimitedUnlimited
Developer2
To create a new user for your organization:
  1. Click Your Name | Setup | Manage Users | Users.
  2. Click New User.

    In Professional, Enterprise, Unlimited, and Developer Editions, you can choose Add Multiple Users to add more than one user at a time.

  3. Enter the user’s first name, last name, and email address. The email address becomes the username. Note
    If the user's name includes non-English characters, the user must add the specified language to the mail format settings within Outlook if viewing email in Outlook.
  4. Select a User License. The profiles available to you depend on the user license you choose. Note
    Some options become unavailable depending on the license type you choose. For example, the Marketing User and Allow Forecasting options are not available for Force.com user licenses because the Forecasts and Campaigns tabs are not available to users with a Force.com license. Force.com user licenses are not available for Professional, Group, or Contact Manager Editions.
  5. Select a profile to control the user's minimum permissions and access settings. For more information, see User Profiles Overview.
  6. In Professional, Enterprise, Unlimited, and Developer Editions, select a role from the list defined for the Role field.

    See Managing Roles if you have not set up the role hierarchy.

  7. Depending on your Edition, you can enable additional features by selecting one or more of the following checkboxes:

    You can't select these features if they aren't supported by your user license type. Additionally, you can't save the new user record if you don't have any available feature licenses for these features. Note
    If the Marketing User checkbox isn't selected, users can only view campaigns and advanced campaign setup, edit the Campaign History for a single lead or contact, and run campaign reports. Set the user’s profile to Marketing User to enable the user to import leads and update campaign history via the member import wizards.
  8. If your organization has Approvals enabled, you can set the user's approver settings, such as delegated approver, manager, and preference for receiving approval request emails.
  9. In Unlimited, Enterprise and Developer Edition organizations, you can select Send Apex Warning Emails to send email to the user when an application that invokes Apex uses more than half of the resources specified by the governor limits. This feature can be used during Apex code development to test the amount of resources being used at runtime. For more information, see Apex Code Overview.
  10. Check Generate new password and notify user immediately to have the user’s login name and a temporary password emailed to the new user.
To create other types of users:
Note
You can change the license type of a Salesforce license, making it a Force.com license, but you cannot change a Force.com license into a Salesforce license. For more details, see Viewing User License Types.
