What are users?
Users can be created by admins. Users can log into KaDeck Web.
To make the management of collections of users easier, users can be assigned to groups. Roles can be assigned to users either through groups or by direct attachment.
Quickstart to create users
Go to the Users page in the Organisation section of the Administration screen.
Create roles and groups first
It is recommended to create roles and groups first before creating users. When creating multiple users, roles and groups can be selected that these users share with each other. This saves a lot of time.
Roles must otherwise be added later individually for each user. Multiple users can be assigned to a group by editing the group on the Group page (see Manage Groups).

- Start creating your user by clicking on “add user” in the top right corner
- You can add multiple users at once. The password can either be generated automatically or manually entered. If you have already created roles or groups, you can assign them now or later.
Once you have added all users, confirm your selection with "save" at the top right.
Next, you will be presented with an overview of all added users, including a generated password. You can download this table as CSV.

Tip: You can always create users
You can always create users in KaDeck, but a user license is required for a user to log in. Users who are not covered by a user license cannot log in and are considered inactive. If new licenses are purchased or existing licenses are released, they are assigned to waiting, inactive users in the order of their creation date on a first-in-first-out basis. Licenses can be released by deleting users with licenses.
