D. Creating Users

One of the first things you’ll need to do is create users and user groups. When creating users or groups, you also assign specific rights and permissions to each, which limits (grants) access to specific tasks and information within OrangeHRM.

To create users and user groups:
  1. Select Admin > Users.

  2. You’ll see 3 categories you’ll need to configure.
    • HR Admin Users—These are your HR employees.
    • ESS Users—These are your company’s employees who can use OrangeHRM to view their vacation time, benefits, and other data.
    • Admin User Groups—These are user groups you can configure for projects in HR, or other purposes.
  3. Here is where you would create users, assign users’ rights within OrangeHRM, or create groups that possess specific rights to save, edit, delete, and so on.
  4. Choose each, choose edit or add and enter the relevant information.
  5. Click Save.
