Account manager page

Account manager user process

This figure shows how this process works using the bodycopy assets created under the asset tree’s account manager page.

The process of user creation on the account manager page

The account manager page can also be set up so that users have to verify their details before their user account is activated (or made live). When the user creates an account, an email will be sent to the email address they entered. The email will contain a URL, which they click to validate their account.

The figure shows how this process works using the bodycopy assets created under the asset tree’s account manager page. For more information about each of these bodycopies, refer to the additional dependant assets section in this chapter.

The process of user creation on an account manager page with validation enabled

Once your account manager page is created, you can configure its settings on its associated asset screens. Read the Asset screens documentation for more information about the common screens in Matrix. This chapter will describe the Details, Create locations, Required attributes, Messages, and Pending accounts screens, which are different for an accounts manager page.

Additional dependant assets

The additional dependant assets

When you create an account manager page, several assets are automatically created beneath it, as highlighted in the figure. You can use these assets to define the contents and layout of the account manager page.

Not logged-in

This bodycopy is used to define what to show the user when they are not signed in. This layout should invite users to sign in or allow them to create a user account for themselves.

Created but not live

This bodycopy is used to define the layout once a user account has been created with Under construction status. This layout should inform the user that their account has been created but will not be active.

A user account needs to have a live status for it to be active. If it is not live, the user will not be able to sign in.
Created, live

This bodycopy is used to define the layout once a user account has been created with live status. This layout should inform the user that their account has been created and is active.

Logged in

This bodycopy is used to define what to show the user when they sign into the system. This layout should allow users to update their account details.

Additional assets for validation

If you are using email validation, a different set of assets will be available under the account manager page in the asset tree, as highlighted in the figure: The not logged-in and logged-in bodycopy are the same as those outlined above. The additional assets are as follows:

Pending accounts

When an account is created, it is stored under the pending accounts user group until verified. Once it has been verified, it is moved into the correct location.

Created, awaiting validation

This bodycopy is used to define the layout once a user account has been created. It should inform the user that an email has been sent to their email address with further instructions.

Validated

This bodycopy is used to define the layout once the user has verified their account. They will see this layout when they click on the URL within the email.

Details screen

The Details screen allows you to configure the settings for the account manager page.

Read the Asset details screen documentation for more information about the Status, Future status, Thumbnail and Details sections of the Details screen.

Read the Custom form contents documentation for more information about the CAPTCHA, Mollom spam check, Google RECAPTCHA, Honeypot question, and Submission time threshold sections.

Account manager settings

This section allows you to select which type of account to create and the status in which to create them. The account manager settings section of the Details screen is shown:

The account manager settings section of the details screen

The fields available are as follows:

Type of account

Select the type of user to be created on the account manager page. Select from User, Backend user, or System administrator.

Create status

Select the status that the created user account will have. To create active accounts, select Live. To create inactive accounts, select Under construction.

Automatically sign user in

Select whether new user accounts will be made live and signed-in automatically after creation. This setting will overwrite the create status setting and disable the email validation function if this field is enabled. By default, this field is set to No.

Metadata schemas to apply

This field allows you to select a metadata schema that will automatically be applied to the created user accounts. The user can then fill in the metadata fields when they are creating an asset. By default, the metadata fields will appear above the create form on the account manager page. Customize the Create form so that the metadata fields can be laid out using the keyword replacement %metadata-f_<fieldid>%, where <fieldid> is the metadata field asset ID. Refer to the Customizing the layout of the create form section for more information.

Enter inline edit mode?

By default, when a signed-in user accesses the account manager page, they will automatically be taken to the simple edit interface to edit their account details. This option allows you to disable this automatic redirect so that a signed-in user can create user accounts instead of editing their details.

Email validation

This section allows you to define whether users have to verify their details before their user account is activated (or made live). When the user creates an account, an email will be sent to the email address they entered. The email will contain a URL, which they click to validate their account. The email validation section of the Details screen is shown:

The email validation section of the details screen

By default, this option is set to No, meaning that their account will not be verified and will be made active if you have selected a create status of live. If you want the user to verify their account:

  1. Set use email validation to Yes.

  2. Click Save.

Additional fields will appear within this section, as shown:

Additional fields in the email validation section

The fields available are as follows:

Email format

This section allows you to configure the email sent to the user once they have created their user account. The fields available are as follows:

To

By default, the email will be sent to the address the user entered when they created their account. This field allows you to enter additional email addresses of the people who should also receive the email, for example, a system administrator. You can enter their email address in the text fields or select their user account in the Asset finder field.

From

Enter the email address that will appear in the From field in the email. By default, the email entered on the system configuration screen will be used.

Reply-to

Enter the email address to which a user can reply. If no reply-to address is configured, the header will not be sent on the email.

Subject

Enter the text to be used as the subject of the email. You can use the keyword replacements displayed under the body within this field. By default, Activating your new account will appear in this field.

Body

Enter the body of the email. You can enter either the text or HTML version of the email in this field. To edit the HTML version, click on the edit icon – a WYSIWYG editor will appear. You can use the keyword replacements displayed under the body within the email. These keyword replacements are as follows:

  • %validation_url%: This will show the URL the user must click to verify their account. This keyword replacement needs to be included within the email; otherwise, the user cannot verify their account.

  • %first_name%: This will show the value the user entered into the first name field when they created their user account.

  • %last_name%: This will show the value the user entered into the last name field when they created their user account.

  • %email%: This will show the value the user entered into the email field when they created their user account.

  • %username%: This will show the value the user entered into the username field when they created their user account.

Send validation button text

Enter the text to be shown on the resend validation button to include on the Not logged-in bodycopy. The user can click this button to resend the original validation email for their user account. By default, resend validation is used.

Pending account resend period

Enter a period after which the validation email is resent to the users who have not verified their user account. For example, if you enter 2 days and the user has not verified their account two days after creating it, the validation email is resent. By default, 0 is entered, meaning that this option is disabled.

Pending account deletion period

Enter a period after which a user account is deleted if the user has not verified it. For example, if you enter 5 days and the user has not verified their account five days after creating it, their user account is deleted. By default, 0 is entered, meaning that this option is displayed.

Post login redirect

This section allows you to select an asset the user is redirected to once they have created their account and signed in.

Advanced settings

This section allows you to change the advanced options for the account manager page.

The fields available are as follows:

Form submission URL

This option controls where the form is submitted. This option is useful if you nest an account manager page in another page. By default, this is the current URL, and the form is submitted to the current page you are viewing (the page in which the account manager page is nested). This setting means that account manager messages will be shown within the original page. If you set this option to the page’s URL, the account manager page will submit to its URL. This setting means that the success or error message will not be nested in another page because the user will be redirected to the account manager page itself. The URL, the lineage, and the menu will change to be the account manager page.

The create form layout asset
Create form customization

This field allows you to create a customization of the create form. To customize the layout:

  1. Select Create form customization

  2. Click Save.

    A layout asset will be created under the account manager page in the asset tree, as highlighted in the figure: This layout asset is then used to layout the create form for the page. Refer to the Customizing the layout of the create form for more information.

Confirm password on create

This option controls whether to display a confirmation input field for the password option when creating a new user account.

Create locations screen

The create locations screen allows you to specify where the user account will be created. You can either:

  • Select a fixed location where the user accounts will be created by default.

  • Create a list of options where the user can select a location.

  • Create a list based on a particular root node. The user then selects a location from the list.

  • Select to create the user account in a particular location based on a set of rules. For example, the username the user entered.

Each create location must be either a user group or role. For example, if you use email validation on the Details screen the user account is created in the pending accounts user group under the account manager page in the asset tree. Once the user has verified their user account, it gets moved into the correct create location.

Fixed create locations

This section allows you to specify the locations where the user accounts are created by default. For example, say you have created an account manager page to allow your users to create a member account. You can create a user group called Site members and select this user group as a fixed create location. Any user accounts that are created will be stored under this user group in the asset tree.

By default, no fixed create location is selected.

  1. Select the user group to use in the Add location field.

  2. Select what type of link to create the user account as in the Link type field.

The available options include Menu link, Hidden link, invisible link and reference link. Read the Link types documentation for more information on each of these link types.

Rules

The rules that are available for each selectable create location are as follows:

Allow no selection

Select this option if you want to allow the user to select no location from the list. If you select Allow no selection, you will need to select at least one fixed Create location. Otherwise, the user account cannot be created as the system does not know where to create it.

Allows multiple selections

Select this option to allow the user to select multiple locations from the list. If they select more than one location, the user account will be linked under each location. In other words, it will be the same asset, with the same asset ID, appearing in multiple locations in the asset tree. If you select this option, depending on what value you have selected in the input style field, the list’s format will change. If you have selected dropdown, the list will appear in a box where the user can hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple values. If you have selected radio buttons, a check box list will appear to tick multiple values. Both of these formats are shown:

A multi-select list and a check box list
Delete set

Click the Delete set button to delete a selectable create location.

Once you have filled in the required fields, you need to add a keyword replacement to the account manager page so that the list will appear to the user. By default, this keyword replacement should be added on the Not logged-in bodycopy. The name of the keyword replacement will reflect the name you entered in the add new set field. For example, if you entered User group when you created the selectable Create location, the keyword replacement you need to add will be User group field.

To add additional selectable create locations:
