How do I add new staff to IRIS Docs?


In order for other users to gain access to the system the users account details must be created or imported from Active Directory. The created/imported users will then be allocated a licence, and in turn you will be required to set the different levels of permissions.

If unsure on permissions to allocate, it is advisable to check another user and allocate the same permissions as them.

To import from Active Directory into IRIS Docs:

  • Click Administration/Cog (version 6.14 onwards).
  • Click Users | Import Users from Active Directory
  • Click on Name starts with text box and enter New User name and then click Find Now.
  • Highlight the New User in the list.
  • Click OK.

Once the new user has been added, click show users and external members on the users menu to show the new user in the list.  Double click on the user to allocate permissions, Groups and licenses:


  • Double click on the users profile
  • Click on the Security tab
  • Click the ‘…’ option
  • Select the appropriate privilege pre-set from the drop down list.  General user is a commonly selected privilege pre-set
