While the Access ACS Member Sign In page lets members and attendees register for a user account themselves, administrators can also add new users.

You can either enter their information manually or select them from your ACS People records. We recommend selecting new users from your ACS People records. This method associates members and attendees with their ACS People record, which includes information such as classes and activities in which the individuals are enrolled and attendance markings. It also lets them access the My Overview page. If you want to assign the Member or Lay Leader profile to a user, you must select them from your ACS People records.
