Adding a new user?

Remember: Setup Team members should have both administrator and Librarian roles.  Librarians who just use the software for day-to-day operations only need the Librarian role.

  • Visit https://YOURSITE.bookpoints.org/admin/people/create (or via admin menu: People > Add User)
  • Complete the new user form for the library staff person you would like to add
  • In the Roles section, check the Library box.  Do not check the Reader box.  (Only check "administrator" if this is for a Setup Team member.)
  • Click the Create new Account button to save.
