    You may enter partial names but you must use at least 3 characters. If the name appears after you search, the user already exists and does not need to be added.
  3. If the user does not already exist in the system, the page will display: “Can’t find the user you’re looking for? Create a new user” (click the ‘Create a new user’ link)
  4. Enter the first and last names, email address and NetID and press ‘Create’ (if the user does not have a NetID, see "Adding a New External User" instructions in the next section)
  5. After adding a new user, you should add their payment sources. See "Adding a User to a ChartString"

Add Approved Users to the instrument Access List
Instruments may require a user to be approved before they can purchase time on the instrument. Any users not already in the CORUM system will need to be added by the Facility Administrator or a Global Account Manager. All users must have an approved payment source to place orders and reservations using CORUM. Note: An easier way to grant access to multiple instruments is available from the "Access List" section on the individual User page.
