  7. You can add the single individual by clicking Submit
    • If you have multiple individuals you need to add, before clicking Submit, you can click + Add User and continue to add more individuals by repeating steps 5 and 6 
    • Once you have added all the individuals you need to include, click Submit

    OR you can add the individuals who should be included in the User Group as you create it by clicking + Add User
    • When selecting + Add Users, you will also have the option to add net new individuals to Athennian and the group by selecting New User +
    • If you choose to add individuals upon creation of the User Group, once you have added all necessary individuals, click Create
