Managing Users

Creating Linked SL Guests

Before MC3.0, SL Guest profiles were created automatically for newly created users. This has been enhanced to give the User the option to also create an SL Guest upon User creation.

One user can have many SL Guest profiles as SL Guests are unique by Name, not email.

Similarly, when you delete a user, the linked SL Guest account will be listed to be optionally deleted.
