Adding an Existing User to a Church

This article explains how to add a user who already has an account into another church database. To register a brand new user within the ChMS, please follow the steps in this article.

Adding an existing user within one database into another church database must be done by a user with Church Administrator or Security Manager permissions.

Begin by navigating to Administrative > User Security. In the User Security page, click + New User found in the upper right-hand corner. This will take you to a new page. In the User field in the top right-hand corner, type in the email address the user has for their current account. Look through the remainder of the page, selecting the appropriate User Roles. Please read this article for more information about the various User Roles within the ChMS.

Important Note: The ChMS requires that a user with access to multiple church databases maintain the same User Roles across all of their churches. Therefore, when adding an existing user to your church, they must receive in your church's database the same permissions they have in the other churches where they are a user.

If the user you wish to add should not have the same User Roles in your church database that they have access to within their other church(es), they should instead create a new user account with a different email address to access your church with a different User Role(s). This can be done by following the New User Registration instructions.

After assigning User Roles, make sure to click Save in the bottom right-hand corner! Now, the user will have access to your church within the ChMS in addition to the other church(es) they could previously access.
