New User Registration

Who is eligible to register online?

The settings in this section will determine the eligibility of a user who registers through the “New User Registration” option on the login screen.

Please note that an administrator can still create users outside of these restrictions. This only applies to online new user registration.

There are four settings available:

  1. Disable new user registration
  2. Allow registration for all members who have signed up
  3. Limit registration to parents only
  4. Limit registration to all parents listed in the student directory.

Default Role for New User Registration

This is a default security role for the user who has registered online.

The default role is the security role that will be assigned to new users upon online registration. This role should have limited privileges for security reasons. For more information on creating security roles, please refer to the “Create Security Roles” section in the Administration section.

It is recommended to create a role specifically for the parent portal with restrictions to specific modules such as the student directory, volunteer sign-up, member sign-up, and calendar.

Roles with administrator privileges should not be set as the default role.

Some of the information in the following tabs can be configured at a later time as required.
