Windows Server 2012 Essentials users missing from Dashnoard

I've recently installed a windows 2012 essentials server for one of our clients, not having an SBS background i installed the server and then went to active directory to add the users. Not realising this should be done from the dashboard.

Now several weeks later all was well until i decided to set up the access anywhere feature. It seems that i can only enable access anywhere on a user in the dashboard, the users that i created directly in AD do not appear in the dashboard!

I just need to know if i can "make them appear in the dashboard" or is there another way to enable access anywhere on the users?

The admin user and a standard user were created during the install but i cannot see what i'd need to change to make one of my users able to access the access anywhere feature.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thats great worked straight away, dont suppose there's a command similar for missing computers? I seem to have 2 missing?

Thanks again
This didn't work for me, I had to use Import-WssUser –SamAccountName “username”
