How Can I Create a New User/Contact in CAKE Basic?

This lesson will walk you through the steps of adding a new user to your CAKE instance. In CAKE, all users have the same view of the system. When adding a user, keep this in mind, if there is something you wish to restrict it will not be possible.

Set Up - Contacts Grid

To add a new user to your CAKE instance, click on your main Set Up tab, then Contacts on the left. This will take you to a list of all your Contacts. On the top right, you'll see an "Add User" button.


Add User Wizard

You can also access the Add User Wizard by hovering over Set Up and clicking on Add User. This option is nice when you do not want to leave, the tab you are currently on.


Add a New User Wizard

Above is the Add a New User Wizard. Enter the users details:

  • First Name: This will be the first name displayed for this user.
  • Last Name: This will be the last name displayed for this user.
  • Email: Will be the user name that this contact will use to log into the CAKE system.
  • Include in Mass Emails: When enabled, this user will receive system notifications sent through the Deliver Email Wizard. If disabled, they will be opted out of all communications from this system.
  • Work Phone: Is an optional field, where you can enter this users work phone number.
  • Cell Phone: Is an optional field, where you can enter this users cell phone number.
  • Password: This will be used to log this user into the CAKE system. Note: If no password is entered here, this user will not be able to log in.
