This setting is available when you add a new institution. https://manual.mahara.org/en/21.10/administration/institutions.html#edit-the-site-institution
Is it possible to switch this on for an existing institution? I haven't been able to find this setting anywhere. Is there something else I need to switch on first?

This setting is currently only available in 'proper' institutions, but not in 'No institution'.

I've created a new institution and I'm trying to add people using a CSV file but I get:
Error on line 2: "user123" is not a member of the institution temp.
(temp being the name I've given the institution (just testing).

Can you please provide the steps that you took to add the accounts? It sounds like you activated the option to update accounts rather than adding new accounts. It's important to know what the settings are for the options on the 'Add or update accounts by CSV' page.

Thank you once again, Kristina, that was it.
Is it not possible to bulk add members to a new institution if they are already on our Mahara site? I am now getting an error message that the emails in the CSV already exist. We used to have different institutions but not now and I can't remember how I added people - probably manually since large numbers were not in question.
What I would really like to do is enable users to access peer assessment. The different institutions were had previously used are not currently enabled and we have an internal institution. I was testing to see if I could create a new institution and add all current active users.

You can move people from one institution to another via a CSV file in Mahara 22.10, which was funded by an Australian university. You can't use it to keep them in two institutions though.
You can add people in bulk to another institution via Admin menu → Institutions → Members. The display there is limited to 100 people at a time so that may be a bit limited if you want to move large numbers of people that would be displayed on different screens. Happy to look into how to improve that if you are keen on funding that.
