we are looking into the azure windows virtual desktop which seems like an excellent cloud based VDI solution. We have deployed it and used a couple of test users (office 365 / Azure AD users).
How can we add additional users to use virtual desktops.

It will depends on how much users have you configured on the initial deployment of the VDI, how much licences do you have, how much machines did you configured on the initial deployment and the method if it were user by machine or pool.
But to add more users, you can do this by the office 365 portal or azure active directory.
Hope it helps.

@Suleyman Ali : Can you tell me more on this, I have deployed the Azure VDI successfully, also I can login to the VDI with global admin user ID and pass. I want to add 2 more users to it. max capacity of the pool is 4 . Thanks in advance.

@RodNet Is there a way to add via a group or do you have to add each user individually?
What do you do in the case of a large deployment?

You can also deploy a VDI Management Portal - which currently can only be configured as an App Service. From what I know Microsoft team is working currently to create a new management portal that will be available from the Azure Portal.
Currently I am administering 3 deployments of VDI in Azure and unfortunately for now you can only add single users which has to be synced in your AAD. If you would like to add multiple users I can share a script with you that it will do this for you. You just have to fill CSV file with Username, AppGroup and HostPool column and then script will add all the users to the specific AppGroup for you automaticly.
Currently there are two licensing models. One that is using CAL licensing and the other that is using M365 License or E5 Lisence if you have Windows 10 Enterprise.
Here is the Microsoft Documentation Page with all the Powershell Comands that you can use with Azure VDI Deployment.
