4 Options for Adding Users in Lessonly

You have a giant list of people you just hired and need to train. Where do you begin?
Well, the first thing is to add them to your Lessonly account. Here are four ways to do so:

1. Add Users One-by-One

First, let’s say you don’t have a giant list of new hires, but instead are just bringing on a few people at a time. Adding those users in one at a time is an easy process by just clicking the ‘new user’ button and then entering their details–name, email, role, and any groups they should belong in. Simple as that!

2. Bulk User Import

However, you may need to enter many users at one time. If that’s the case, you can build a .csv file of your users and easily upload it into your Lessonly account.
Click the “Bulk User Import” menu item under the cog icon to start importing:

Your .csv file should look like this: Screen Shot 2015-07-30 at 4.20.34 PM

3. API

If you want to automate the process even more, you can connect with our API in which users can be automatically updated in Lessonly when you add them in your current HR system (or whatever system you choose to connect with Lessonly). You may need some help from your development team in the initial setup, but the rest of the process will be a cakewalk.

4. Just Ask Us

If you ask us (support@lessonly.com), we’d be more than happy to do it for you. I’ll let you in on a secret too–we’re going to use bulk user importing.
