You must be logged in and have Leader or Moderator access rights to the team site.


Add a New User

From the team site main page, click "Add new user" at the bottom of the Site Members web part.

Click Add new user

Enter a name or email address (works best if you surround first and last name or email address with double quotes, followed by a semi-colon, e.g., "[email protected]"; ) and wait for the name choice display to appear; select the appropriate account. Potential members must have an account with DAU. If adding multiple names, you must add them all with the same permission level.

Enter a user name and wait for options, then select the appropriate one.

Note: If you cannot find the user with the above method, you may request the user supply you with his/her Empower Identity (EID) user name or DAUID number. The user can find these by signing in to EID (, clicking the down arrow beside his/her name at the top right corner of the page, and choosing View Profile from the menu. The DAUID number is clearly marked, and the EID user name is listed as DAU Login.

After adding a name(s), click "Show Options" (will display as "Hide Options" after you click it) to reveal the permission level drop-down menu. Make your selection and then click the Share button. Be sure to add new members in the Team Members group first, then add them for any additional rights that you wish to grant them.

Click Show Options to assign access rights.
