How To Add Users in the Admin Console

Google Admin Console / Users / How To Add Users in the Admin Console

Before you begin

  • You need to have at least one license for each user before creating a new user. You can purchase Chrome licenses or Google Workspace licenses on our online shop.

  • To create a user account, you just need the person's first and last name. It might be a good idea to have a secondary email address to send sign-in details for the new user.

1. From the Admin console homepage, click on Users.

2. Click on the Add new user button at the top. If you are adding multiple users at once, use the Bulk upload users button.

3. Fill out the information in the pop up window.

  • If you have multiple domains, you can choose which one you would like for the users email.

  • You can automate a password or create a password for them and then have them change the password when they first log in.

4. Click Add new user.

When you are finished creating the new user, the new user can now sign in. If you added a secondary email address, the new user will receive a welcome email message that explains how to sign in for the first time. Please note, it can take up to 24 hours for new user accounts to appear in the searchable global directory.
