Once you’ve provided the necessary information and assigned the role, click the “Add New User” button at the bottom of the page.

Step 6: Notify the new admin
If you checked the “Send User Notification” box in Step 3, WordPress will automatically send an email to the new admin’s email address, containing their login details and a link to the WordPress login page.
