You can create a user to add an account holder by entering personal and system-related information. For example, you can enter a user ID and email address, and assign this user to an organization. When you assign the user to an organization, you define the data he or she can access.

You can also specify a date range for account access. Doing so ensures that the user can log in only during the specified date range.
