The Dashboard's Book Users tab enables you to add and remove users from your book, and to set their privileges.
To add a user to your book, click the "Add a user" button at the bottom of the page. A pop-up will prompt you to search for a user by their full name. You must enter the user's full name exactly as it appears in their account (case insensitive) to find a match. When a match is found, click the user's name to add them to your book.
To edit the information for a specific user, click the "Edit" button for the row in which he or she appears in the user list.
Full name. The name by which the user will be credited on any Scalar books and comments they author.
Email. The user's Scalar email and login.
