Self-Register an AccountLast Updated: 12/03/2015 Introduced in Verision: 2.0
If the platform has been configured to allow users to self register, a new user can create an account while logging in.
To self-register an account, the user clicks a link on the Login screen, and the Register New Account pop-up opens. The user can enter the username in the form of an email address and a password for the account, as well as other contact information.
This account can access the portal immediately, but will have limited permissions until a member of the administrators group changes the permissions.
This example assumes that the platform has been configured to allow a user to self register. If it has not been configured, the Sign Up link will not display on the Login screen.
In the example, we will create a user account through self registration, then access the portal using the account.
On the Login screen, we click the Sign Up link.
The Register New Account pop-up opens.
We enter an email address, which is the username for the account, in the E-mail and Confirm E-mail fields.
We also enter a password in the Password and Confirm Password fields.
We can enter additional contact information.
We select the I agree with Terms of Service checkbox, and click the Register button.
The portal opens.
Since we have self registered, we have limited permissions and cannot access most of the portal’s functionality. A member of the Administrators group must configure the permissions associated with this account to grant this account access to folders in the portal.
