Backend account creation

As administrator of your site you also have option to create users for your site. In order to do it properly you will need to assigned theme appropriate role, activate their account and set their membership level.

By going to _Users -> Add New _you will have WordPress default options for creating user.

Fill all necessary fields and make sure that Role _is set to either _Craftsman _or _Client. If you forgot to do that and still click on Add New User, no worries you will still have to come back to this user to set other necessary things.

Once you create user go to _All Users screen _and click on newly created user to enter its profile.

You will see screen like this:On the right you can set their avatar, though they can do it themselves on their frontend profile page.

Scroll to the very bottom of this screen and you'll see below marked options:

You will need to set User Status to Active and User Premium Status to either Free Trial or Premium so newly created user will be able to use immediately their profile.

Let's learn what each of this options means:

User Status: This option can be set to Inactive or Active. Setting this option to Active will make user account activate so they won't need to do it themselves from frontend.

User Featured Status: This option can be set to Not Featured or Featured. If it is set to Featured then their profile or jobs they posted if they are client will be shown among top searched results.

User Premium Status: This field consists of four possible options that we'll explain below:

Not Premium: First visible option when user is created ( this is automatically changed when user creates their profile from backend ). You will use this if you want to reset expiring dates to count from beginning. If user is premium, for example, but 5 days has already passed from their premium time and you wish to reset it to 0, then you will set select field to this option then click on update and after page refresh you will set it again to Premium and click update. Same process is for Free Trial.

Free Trial: Set this option if you wish user to experience free trial period. It is automatically set when user creates its own account from frontend by choosing free trials option.

Expired: Set to this option if you wish to make user membership to expired. This will make craftsman or jobs posts of client not visible on the site anymore!

Premium: Set this option if you wish user to be premium. It is automatically set when user creates its own account from frontend by choosing premium account.

This part is same for both craftsman and client accounts. The rest is somewhat different and you can find more about it on below links:
