Why create a user from the platform ?
It is useful to create a user when a new person joins your company or when a person has to use Ermeo for the first time.
What is a user ?
A user is a person using Ermeo. A user can be an administrator, a supervisor, an operator. An Ermeo account is associated with each operator. This account can be active or not. For an account to be active, a license must be assigned to this account.
In practice, how do you create a new user ?
Context : Imagine an employee joining a new company. A supervisor will need to create an Ermeo account for this new employee.
