Once the page is protected, you can select current users, or create a new user that can access the page. *If you want to give access to a large number odf users, we suggest that you create a "generic" user that everyone can share.

Select the User Admin Tab at the top of the Settings window (if you do not see the tab, you probably don't have the proper permissions to edit this feature)

Select a username

  • Add the first name as Member (can be anything really, but member makes it easy)
  • Use your current email address (no one sees it, it's only for administrative reasons)
  • Important: Leave User Level set to None
  • Add a password (you will be giving this out along with the username)

Click the Submit Changes button
(Do not click the OK button in the lower right corner of the window. Clicking OK will save all of your changes and close the pop-up window)
