5. Here enter the new user name, full name of the user, description and a strong password. While creating the user account, you have two options, to let the new user change the password after first login or just restrict the user from ever changing the password.

If you want to force the user to change the password after the first login, then select the option User must change the password at next login. If you want to restrict the user from ever changing the password, then deselect the previous option and select the new option User cannot change password. Once you are done with the changes, click on the Create button to create the new user account.
