Managing users involves many different activities, including adding users, setting security roles, and placing users into a reporting hierarchy. Access to each of these features is protected by security privileges that the user has based on the user's security role. A user profile must first be created and saved before the user can be assigned security roles or associated with teams.
A Microsoft CRM user account can be either Enabled or Disabled. Microsoft CRM will allow only Enabled users to log on to the application and each enabled user has a paid license. A user's account can be set to Disabled for keeping track of historical information for example, a salesperson who left the company or to remove them from workflow processes, for example, if they are on vacation, or to remove them from the available license count. Disabled users do not count against paid licenses.
