Self-Register an Account

A new user can create an account while logging in if the platform has been configured to allow users to self register.
To self-register an account, the user clicks a link on the loginscreen, and the Register New Account popup 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 Register link will not display on the loginscreen.
To configure self registration, navigate to Settings > Portal Settings > Registration Settings.

Example

In this example, we will create a user account through self registration. Afterwards, we will access the portal using the account.
On the Login screen, we click theRegister link.

We enter an email address, which is the username for the account, in theE-mail andConfirm E-mail fields.
We also enter a password in the Password and Confirm Passwo rd fields.
We can enter additional contact information.

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.
