How-to Add a New User to Google Apps

Google Apps is a an amazing tool for a one person show to large businesses and if you’re not already using it, you should check out the Google Apps How-to from MrGroove, posted a while back which explains the step-by-step for getting your company up and running quickly.

Once your up and running on Google Apps, the first logic step is to start creating some users.  MrGroove covered this in his earlier groovyPost however today I’m going to dig a little deeper with a bit more detail and screenshots so we can easily refer back to the steps in future Google Apps groovyPosts (yes… more are definitely on the way!).

First, Login to your Google Apps account by going to

Click Organization & users

Click Create a new user

Input your new users information, First name, Last name & Primary email address. Then Click Create new user.
You have the option of sending the new user a temp password OR set a password for the new user.

Google will create and display a temporary password on the next screen.  You can either manually deliver this to them or Click the link Email Instructions to send it to their other address.

And there’s our new employee!
