The first step for anyone Registering or Submitting for a conference is to create a User Account if they do not already have one. This is done through the Conference Sign-Up Tool or TID=90. We recommend checking your settings first to make sure that your users will be able to create a new account in the way that you want. We need to check how you are forcing the login behaviour.
- Sign in as Admin and to to Tools -> Community -> Edit Conference
- At the very bottom of the form you will want to ensure that you have the following two settings set as below:
Force Email as User Login - YES: will prevent people from signing up multiple accounts with different names. This way the system will recognize their email and suggest their account has already been created.
Auto Generate User Password - NO: will allow users to select a password that is meaningful to them and will help them remember it for future logins which will also mitigate multiple sign-ups of the same person.
**NOTE: If you have chosen to "Force Login before Registration" on your Registration Form setup, your first-time delegates will be taken to TID=90 automatically when they click the Make An Account button.
Now that we have set these up correctly for your conference, we can present the new delegates with a link via email or on a landing page on your own Site to bring them to TID=90 for sign up. To create this link you will combine your CID number and the TID number. For example: https://www.confmanager.com/main.cfm?cid=xxxx&tid=90 (ensure that in place of the XXXXs you put your CID number)
The user will be taken to a page that looks like the following. Any field marked with an Asterisk* means that it is a Required Field and must be filled out before they can submit the form. With your Admin Account, you can change which of these fields are Visible, Optional or Required by changing the settings in TID=105
