I just want to try the office 365 SharePoint Online and I got the trial account for it.

When I created the private site collection the Administrator is required. How can I create a user for it? Is it available for trial version?

  • did you try to add your id? i mean under which you log in? did you create any other user accout?

  • I try my id and click Check Name and It can be through, But it is strange that why my log id can not be seen in the All Users. And I didn't know how to create another user account. Thanks.

The trial version should be only for 1 user. So you can only use yourself. Even my MSDN Premium doesn't allow more.

Regarding the people picker, mine too show same unless you type some and search.

  • +1 Thanks, I got it . I will appreciate you if you could show some MSDN document to read about the limitation of user counts for trial. Because of huge document of Office 365 and SharePoint 2013. It is hard to figure it out for the newbie like me.

  • Go to Office 265 Admin --> USERS --> Active Users. Then click new button (the plus sign). Create new user account window will appear. There check 'Select license(s) for this user:' section. It will show whether you have license or not. Sep 1, 2014 at 8:54
  • Well, I think it is not explicit to tell the trial user you need license for Site Collection creation. Because I can create an account without the license. Right ?

  • Yes this is not about site collection creation. Adding a user to the site. Trial users will not have a subscription that can add any more users. Sep 1, 2014 at 9:25
