Fields in the Create New User window

Field Action
Email address Enter the email address of the user. The inSync account details is sent to the user at this address.
Name

Enter the display name of the user.

Profile Select a profile that you want to associate the user with.
Storage

Select a storage or a storage pool to which you want the user's data to be backed up.

  • If you select a storage pool, you have the option to select the preferred storage from the pool. The user's data is backed up on the preferred storage.
  • If you do not select a preferred storage, inSync will choose the storage to which user's data will be backed up. 
User Quota

Enter the maximum data that the backup and share folder of the user's devices can contain. Backups or share from user devices will fail is data exceeds the quota. If you do not want any restriction on the amount of data the user can back up or share, enter 0 (zero).

Note: By default, the quota assigned to the profile is displayed as the user quota. You can assign a different quota for the user you are creating. If you do so, changes made to the quota on the profile will not be applicable for the user.
Subject If required, modify the subject of the account activation email that will be sent to the user.
Body

If required, modify the body of the account activation email that will be sent to the user.
