trying to reactivate a user but CC tells me that email is "in use by another user". She was either deactivated or deleted some time ago does not show up on the current list of users.

How can I re-activate her??

Hello @LWV-Washtenaw ,

This messaging is because the person you're trying to add has their email address as a username for another account they're on. They'll need to login to the other account they own / are a user on, and update their username to something different / unique. Once they've done that you can add them as a user to your account using that freed-up email address.

It'd also be advisable that once they've gotten their login setup for your account, they update their username to something more unique - that way they're free to have their email address be used to setup another account user login if necessary.

If they need further assistance with updating their other accounts' username, I'd advise having them call general support to provide the email address in question, confirm security permissions live, and work with the agent to administratively update that other username.
