Adding users to your account

As an account or user administrator, you can add other users to your account. You can then determine what users can or cannot do by applying specific rights and roles per user.

Once users have been created, they can then sign in using their personal email address and password.

Note: There is no extra charge for adding additional users to your account.

Creating users

    How can a user add a picture to their profile? Once of our users has managed to do this, and others have asked how they did it.

    Hi Tracey, right now these pictures come from Gravatar. A setting to set your own picture from within your CheckMarket account may be added in the future, but I cannot provide you with an exact timing for that at this instant.
