This article describes the process by which new users are individually created in Seismic Learning. For information on adding users in bulk, see this article.

Add a New Person

To create a new user, navigate to the People page and select New Person. Doing so will load the user creation form.

Standard Fields

Use these standard fields to create a profile for your new user.

  • Name

  • Email address

  • Job title

  • Business unit

  • Department

  • Location

  • Hire date

  • Manager name

  • Username (if enabled)

You can also create custom fields to better describe a user's function within your organization. Some examples of custom fields include ID number, phone number, and business unit.

πŸ’‘ Tip: Only the name and email fields are required to create a new user.

User Roles

Learning users can be assigned to one of four default roles: admin, manager, creator, or learner. Each role has a unique set of permissions depending on the user's level of access.

To learn more about each role, check out this article, or select "Learn about Roles" on the user creation form.

πŸ’‘ Tip: Did you know you can create custom roles? It's true! Read this article to learn more.


If you've already created user groups, you can add new users to those groups during the account creation process. If a group was previously assigned learning content, you can extend these assignments to new members of the group.

Welcome Email

To complete the account creation process, choose when the learner should receive a link to access Learning: immediately, or when they receive their first assignment/event invite.

The email containing this registration link is called the welcome email. More information about welcome emails (how to resend them in order to reset user passwords, e.g.) can be found here.


If you don't see the People tab at the top of the Learning interface, or the New Person button is not available, notify your local Learning administrator.
