Dynamics CRM 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online

How you manage users depends on the version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM that you have.

With Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 (on-premises), you can add users to your organization one at a time, or you can add multiple users at the same time by using the Add Users wizard.

  1. Make sure you have the System Administrator security role or equivalent permissions in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

    • Follow the steps in View your user profile.

    • Don’t have the correct permissions? Contact your system administrator.

  2. Follow the steps for the app you’re using.

    1. On the nav bar, click or tap Microsoft Dynamics CRM > Settings.

      Settings appears on the nav bar.

    2. Click or tap Settings > Administration > Users.

    3. On the toolbar, click or tap New.

    1. In the Navigation Pane, expand your organization if necessary, and then click or tap Settings > System > Administration > Users.

    2. On the ribbon bar, on the Users tab, click or tap New.

  3. On the New User page, in the Account Information section, specify the User Name for the user.

  4. In the User Information section, specify the Full Name for the user.

  5. In the Organization Information section, verify the Business Unit for the user.

  6. Follow the step for the task you’re doing:

    • To save the information for the new user, click or tap Save.

    • To save the information for the user and add another user, click or tap Save & New.

    • To add another user without saving the information you entered for the user, click or tap New, and then in the Message from webpage dialog box, click or tap OK.

    Next, you’ll need to assign a security role to the newly added user. See “Assign a security role to a user” later in this topic.

You can add multiple user records for the same set of security roles by using the Add Users wizard. Any users you add must be in the Active Directory directory service.

  8. On the Select Users page, type a part of the name of user you want to add to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013. Use semi-colons between names.

    noteNote
    You can also use Look Up to select users. More information: How Inline Lookup Works

    • To close the Add Users wizard, click or tap Close.

    • If you need to add more users, for example with a different set of security roles, click Add More Users to begin the wizard again.

    To edit a specific user record, close the wizard, and then open the user record from the list.

After you create users, you must assign a security role for them to use Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Even if a user is a member of a team with its own security privileges, the user won’t be able to see some data and may experience other problems when trying to use the system.

    • Don’t have the correct permissions? Contact your system administrator.

When you create a new user or update an existing user in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 (on-premises), some fields in the CRM user records, such as the name and phone number, are populated with the information obtained from Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). The synchronization between Active Directory user accounts and the CRM user records is not automatic. If you change user fields in Active Directory, the information isn’t propagated to CRM until you refresh the user records in CRM.

The following table shows the fields that are populated on the CRM user form (user record) from Active Directory user account:
