If a Zendesk users sends in a support request and they are not a user within Litmos, create them as a user by changing any details in the Litmos Courses App within Zendesk and select Create.  If the user already exists in Litmos, this step will be skipped.  Users will be identified by matching their email address within Zendesk with their username in Litmos.
