#18163 new feature request

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

Reported by: danielbachhuber Owned by:

Severity: normal Version:
Component: Users Keywords: needs-patch
Focuses: administration, multisite Cc:


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.
