    Is the only way to add a new profile on the admin home screen? Seems like it would be good to have a button when you are in a profile, maybe next to return to results, instead of having to back to the admin home screen when you are already in profile mode.

    Sharon - The only way to add a profile right now is by clicking on the Add plus sign next to Active Profiles from the Admin Home. You can also take an application form on behalf of a new member to add them to the database. If you like, feel free to post your suggestions about adding a "new profile" button somewhere else in the back end here, in our Ideas Forum.

    How can I generate a username and password when adding a new user?

    Hi Lori - You'll make up the Username and Password when adding a user manually. I typically create the Username as the email address, or as first initial last name (ex. John Smith = jsmith). I recommend creating the password as something that you can easily relay to the member, or as a randomly generated mix of letters and numbers. I hope that helps!
