Creating a User

In Apto, every user is identified by a username, password, and a single profile. The user profile determines what tasks users can perform, what data they see, and what they can do with the data.

Within “Users”, you can perform user management tasks such as creating and editing users, resetting passwords, and creating Google Apps accounts. As an administrator, you must add all of your users to your Apto account so that they can use the product.
