Comment (by harshit_ps):

 Thanks @shah.neel for your suggestion.
 I think the above wireframes wouldn't work with large network

 Here is how we have been using this plugin [https://wordpress.org/plugins
 /custom-add-user/] at NYU for our multisite environment.


 This single form handles both new user and existing user because in our
 case the usernames are always unique (e.g. university id). So the site
 admin (e.g. faculty) doesn't need to know if the user he is trying to add
 already exists in the network (the new user might already have his own
 site or he might have been added by any other faculty on a different site
 in the same network)

 This could be modified to work with unique email ids in addition to/in
 place of unique username. So if a site admin adds a new user, WordPress
 will check if a user with same email id exists in the network and handle
 it accordingly.

 Let me know what you think.
