Invite users (cloud)
Inviting a user
To set up user accounts, administrators should use the page Special:InviteSignup. This sends an email invitation to new users and the users can create their own login information by following the sign-up link in the email invitation.
After providing an email address and clicking Add, an email is sent to the invited user.
When the invited user clicks on the provided sign-up link, the page Create account appears in the browser. The user can now create a wiki account.
After checking both checkboxes, the user can finish the account creation process and is automatically logged in.
As long as a user has not created an account, the invitations can be deleted. Simply click on the delete button next to the invitation.
Creating user accounts on behalf of users
If an administrator sends out invitations to users to create their own accounts, users can freely choose their username and passwords. As an alternative, administrators can directly create users accounts. In this process, users receive an email with a random password, but with a user name that was created by the administrator.
