Audience: ClassLink Administrator
Email-based accounts can be created manually or imported into the system. This is only used when an organization would like to add a user(s) who is not part of their domain or when the organization prefers to not have users authenticate into ClassLink LaunchPad utilizing their Active Directory, Google, or Azure accounts, but instead with their email address.

- Go to CMC -> Groups & Users -> Users -> New User.

- Input an email formatted account (firstname.lastname@example.org). An actual email account is not needed.
- Input and confirm a password.
- Complete the Display Name, First Name, and Last Name fields.
