A new user could be just a CONTACT to keep on file, or could be someone you're giving administrative rights to. (See FIG 5.)

A GUEST ACCOUNT is an anonymous access that could be used, for example, when a user is purchasing something on your website, they can do an anonymous checkout.

A USER ACCOUNT is for giving someone access to ECMS in order for them to make changes to your website.

Editing Users

Users will be listed under the People Tab as shown below (listed in Tiles View). John Doe and Jane Smith were added as Contacts and do not have the Administrator label. You can scroll or do a search for a specific name in a long list of users.

Click on a person to view their detailed account information. Add new information, change existing info, or remove them.
