  • User Name: The new user’s username. When creating customer accounts, RiskSense uses the user’s first initial and their last name (e.g., Brian Smith’s username would be “bsmith”). Usernames must be unique.
  • First Name: User’s first name.
  • Last Name: User’s last name.
  • Email: User’s email address.
  • Phone Number: User’s phone number.
  • Assign All Groups You are Explicitly Assigned To: Check this box to assign the new user to all groups you are explicitly assigned to in RiskSense.
  • Search for Groups: Search groups to manually add users to groups. Type in a group name, and when you see the group to add in the drop-down list, click it. You can add as many groups as needed. To remove a group, click the X next to the group to remove.
