When you click the "Add User" button a wizard will pop up and walk you through the necessary steps.

First, you'll be asked to pick their Role.  I've selected Affiliate Manager, although you can select any role you'd like this person to have. You can read more about roles acess in the article on Permissions.

On step 2 of the new user wizard, enter any information you have for the contact. The name (first and last), email, password and contact type are required to continue.

Departments are available for all clients but do not display if no Departments exist. To add departments, go to Setup main tab > Other Lists sub tab > Departments.

The Include in Mass Emails checkbox determines whether the user can receive user generated emails from your CAKE instance. These are not user prompted emails like "get creatives" or "send login info" and as such, should be opted into and follow any relevant SPAM laws accordingly.

At this point you can edit any information or send the user their login information by clicking on the Send Login Information button.
