See some great new option in version 5.4.x

 

I tested Allow automatic user creation, but not fully sure how it works. I added Listing Type Allowed for register.

 

When adding Business (not registered) Free or Paid, after saving listing, it will redirect to login screen and receive message Business has been saved successfully.

 

When testing option, noticed that after selecting package, the progress bar is Create Account status, but actual is entering Listing data.

 

In both cases, Business Lisitng is created (no user attached) and no user is created.

 

I tested with New User Account registration (Joomla) None and Self.

Hi,

 

The user should be created automatically after the business listing is created based on the listing email and an auto generated password.
We will check again the process to make sure everything is OK.

Hi George,

 

Thanks for your reply, but  :-)

 

I mentioned in earlier posts that is very frustrating if user add company the flow will be 'blocked' by registration, especially when new user..

 

If we run a large campaign, we disable the welcome message with registration link for a certain time, not very nice, as will give bots the option to flood the registration form.

 

You new solution is a nice step ahead, but there are some challenges:

- Sending password not a very secured way. Suggest that you build in the option (Yes/No) to Force Password Reset.

 

- Missing user information. Suggest for all add listings similiar form as used Claim Business with some addtional information.

 

- If selecting free package, no billing information 

 

In general suggest just to change the sequence, same used on e-commerce sites:

 

Add Business -> Business Details -> New Registration or Login

Good you bring this up and its very very crucial this works smooth. I have the same problem..

5.4.2. It works, but still some 'issues':

 

- The progress indicator still not working

- You need to activate include password in activation mail and will apply for all users. I'm not so happy with sending passwords in email. Also as Require Password change isn't activated for user.

  

Some possible improvements:

 

- Change process sequence and place the user registration as the last part of the process. 

If user is decided (or system issue) is unable to finalize registration, the listing is still be captured (status unclaimed) and can send follow-up mail to claim business.
