Add/Edit Users

A "user" is any employee who has a different username and password to access the DistributorCentral account. 

Multiple users can be added to an account and each user has a unique set of account "rights".  This means that not all users can access any part of the distributor's account. 

For example: You can have a "Website Administrator" user, who can only access the website editor, or a "Orders Administrator" user who can enter or edit orders only. 

The rights associated to the user are called the "User Groups". 

By editing the users, you can change the first name, last name, email address, and login credentials for the user accounts.
