Self service multisite user process

This process allows an authorised local site administrator to initiate a Multisite user request for any SIMS ID user. The purpose of this is to allow multi-site users such as members of a MAT central team or SIMS Support Unit staff to be invited to the site without the need to contact ESS Support.

A video guide to Using the Self Service Multisite User process is also available
