Great! I was looking for this plugin :) thanks!

Admin can create single user at a time, right? Is it possible for you to add more than one users at a time?

also, will test this plugin and update you.
Added the batch create: https://github.com/q2apro/q2apro-create-new-user/blob/master/q2apro-create-new-users-batch-page.php

You can open it with /createnewusers and then enter the userdata semicolon-separated in this order (one user per line): email;password;handle
@q2apro.com, thank you, appreciate your help. I added this plugin to demo sites.
