Trying to add a user that already exists in the MyLO system? If so, you can skip steps 1-10 since the user took those steps for you. Begin with step 11, where you're searching for that user by their email address (or username, if known).

Steps 1-10: Create New User Account

  1. Begin on your League's homepage. Click to expand the Administrator League Site menu.
  2. Click Manage Members to access the member roster.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the member roster. Click Add Member button.MyLO Doc - Add Member from Manage Members screen
  4. Click Create new user button. This will open a new tab/page, but DO NOT CLOSE THE PREVIOUS TAB/PAGE because you'll come back to it once you've created this new user.MyLO Doc - Create new user
  5. Add new member's information, such as:

    • Username**: the preferred method for creating a username is "firstnamelastname" (e.g. janedoe, johnsmith). This value is unique for each user.
    • Email Address**: this is unique for each user (no duplicate email addresses allowed).
    • Password (& confirmation)**: create a default password that the new user will change upon receiving login credentials.
    • Status: the new user should remain active.
    • Notify user of new account: See this example of the email template used for these system-sent notices. Since the system's email does not include specific context about your League, we recommend using your own email inbox (i.e. your League's email address) to send new members/webmasters their notice; you can download either version of our template welcome emails:
