How to capture registration information

This article will provide you with instructions on how to capture registration information from your learners.

Registration information can be a critical element to help you to identify your users and to ensure they can get the full experience of using some of our great features like leaderboards, discussions, assignments and analytics.

Registration information can only be collected when using invite codes.

All registration set up can be found under the "Registration" section of the "Users" tab.

Firstly, the invite code tick box will need to be enabled in order to start using the registration fields.

Top Tip:

If you don't want to use registration fields and you just want to allow invite codes on a user group level then you don't need to tick this box. They will still work for user group invite codes but won't collect registration details.

 

Once the box has been ticked you will have the ability to enable the registration fields of your choice. 

1. Account fields include email and password, these are unclickable as they are default to allow a user to sign up with an account on the system. This means that they will always be required on sign up.

2. Personal fields include first name and last name, these are optional fields for the admin to include but will be mandatory for the learner to fill out. These will be displayed on leaderboards, discussions, assignments and other features on EdApp.

3. Business fields include Post code (currently limited to Australia only), Zip code (currently limited to US only) and Store name. These are all optional fields for the admin to include but will be mandatory for the learner to fill out.

4. Compliance fields allow admins to make learners agree to terms before using EdApp. Links can be put into this box to link the learner to the relevant terms and conditions they are agreeing to.

5. Other fields these are slightly different to the pre-made fields that we found higher up on this page. In this area we can collect information from a registration field of your choosing. This will be a free text box that the user can write their information in. These are all optional fields for the admin to include but will be mandatory for the learner to fill out.

They first need to be set up in app settings which can be found in the drop down menu in the top right had corner of your screen. 

Then go to the "more" tab.

Here you will find a section called "User Custom Fields"

Use the "+" button in the top right of this section to create a new custom field e.g. Job Title or Department. We recommend copying what you put into the "Field Label" box in the "Field Description" box. 

You can also choose whether these custom fields will be displayed for the users in discussions and assignments. 

Make sure you click save on this page before returning to the "Registration" page. 

Once you go back to the "Registration" page you can then enable the boxes to appear for the learner upon sign up.
