#18163 new feature request

Include more usermeta fields in the Network Admin's "Add User" view

Focuses: administration, multisite Cc:

Description

The view for adding a new user in single site instances includes many useful fields (e.g. first name, last name, a checkbox for whether the user should be emailed the password, etc.)

We should replicate this in the network admin to keep the super admin from having to edit each individual profile.

Relevant views:

  • /wp-admin/network/user-new.php

In favor of consistency.

(That said I think the bigger inconsistency is between the add existing user on the users list table and on the Add New screen. Want those to be the same.

Closing as maybelater. Complete lack of interest on the feature on the ticket over the last 4 years. Feel free to reopen when more interest re-emerges (particularly if there's a patch).

Noting that the ticket here did not actually get closed, which is ok. :)

The network admin's Add User definitely needs improvement. I would love to see additional user meta fields exposed here.

Added screenshots of the current state. It would be nice to have at least "First Name" and "Last Name" added to the new network user screen and to the new site/network user form.

Hi,

I added two fields in Add a new user to the site and network view. First name and Last name. I added a screenshot if you want to see the changes.

By the way, I am agree with #comment:3, this is a really issue in my opinion for two reasons :
1) Bad UX, we don't always understand in the first time the difference between the two forms
2) There are plugins that add some fields in the new user form, and those fields are displayed in the both forms instead of only the new user one. If we want to fix this in only one form, we should find a good UX with a notice for the email and username field maybe like "Type the username of an existing user if you want to add him to this site".

Maybe we should open a second ticket for this both forms problem, what do you think ?

Like discussed in the Slack, we should add the website field to be more consistent with the original form (with no multisite). I'll do it in another patch.

We will also handle this ticket with this bigger one that would improve UX of the multisite new user forms : #36656 and this one : #37836
