how to add users
 

I am a bit confused and probably many of you can help me or tell me where to find the info in the documentation...
So, in order to enrol someone in a course, that person needs to be a user, right?
When I try to add a new user, I need to fill several fields, such as name or country. Can I customize what fields are required? I would like to be able to add users that provide less information.
And can people create their own user accounts?
I would appreciate your help

I already know how to customize the required fields, I still don't know if I can enable people to create their own user accounts.

Hi there. Authentication is how users get onto the site - http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Authentication so take a look at email based  self registration, which is what you want. Enrolment is how you get users onto a course - http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Enrolments so that might be useful too.
