Manually Add Users to Your Account in the GoTo Admin Center (classic)

    Most account admins add users via the GoTo Admin Center (classic), either individually or by uploading a list for a batch import of users.

    Alternatively, for admins managing an organization with a high number of users and/or user turnover, we recommend using automated provisioning instead.
