Why can't I re-add the user I deleted?

 

If you deleted a user by clicking the Delete button on the Users page, it was just a soft delete. Put simply, this means that the user's email address is still present in the Award Force database but they have been removed from your user list. Because an email can be registered only once, the address exists in Award Force and cannot be re-added as a new user.

You can, however, undelete the user by following the steps below.

Undelete a user

  1. Go to Users
  2. Open the All but deleted toggle and select Deleted
