Create a new Bynder user

As an administrator, you can create new users, give them rights and invite them to use Bynder. You can create multiple users at once and import the email addresses of the new users from a CSV file.

If you create single users, the profile you create for them is more detailed than the profiles generated when you create multiple users at once. If you want to create multiple users with detailed profiles, you need to contact your Customer Success Manager.

Before you begin

  • You add users to specific profile types that define what users can do in Bynder. Make sure you have the profile types set up before you create users. See Create or edit a user profile.

Try it

  1. Go to Settings > Users & rights > User Management.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click Add new user and enter the required profile information for the user.
    • If you want to create multiple users at once, click Add multiple users. Enter or import email addresses of the new users from a CSV file.
      If you create multiple users, you need to add all these users to the same user profile. If you want to create multiple regular and heavy users, you need to do it in two batches.
  3. Select the user profile from the drop-down list. The profile defines the user rights in Bynder.
  4. Select Active for the user to be able to log in to Bynder.
  5. Select Send email notification if you want the user to get a notification that their account has been created. By selecting this option, you also allow the user to define their own password to the portal. If you leave this option cleared, you need to define the password for the user.
    If you select this option but do not select the Active option, the user will receive a notification to contact a person within their organization. They will also not be able to log in to the system.
  6. (Optional) Select SSO user for this user to be able to log in with his/her SSO credentials only.
    You need a feature enabled to have this option. If you want to have it, contact your Customer Success Manager.
  7. Click Save.
