You can create manually or you can import active directory users from your existing infrastructure. You can click “Manage My Cloud” and then “Manage User” to invoke the user manager.
For manual creation, you can do it any time you are ready. For import active directory users, you will need to first install “Gladinet Cloud Server” into one of the file server inside the domain (active directory). The “Gladinet Cloud Server” can take on the role as a proxy authentication server to import active directory users.

If you are using Gladinet Desktop client with a mapped network drive, most popular software such as the Microsoft Office Word, Excel can also do the automatic file locking for you.
