Location Registration provides you with the tools to allow locations to add their own new listings.  Most of the time, it's used together with Location Logins. However, Bullseye is setup to allow you to use it independently.  


Requirements: Web Plus or Web Premium subscription


Overview


Before getting into the setup, it's important to understand some overall concepts regarding Location Registration.  Our out-of-the-box registration process is a three-step process.   In Step One, the user  fills out a basic registration form which includes:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email
  • Password
When they submit this form, a user account is created with a status of pending.  In Step Two an activation email is sent to the email of the registration. The activation email has an "Activation" link which the user can click on to activate their account. In Step Three, the new registrant then fills in the location information via the add/edit location screen.  Step Three is complete when the user saves the new location information.  At that time, an approval email is sent to the Account Admin (if it is configured in the account).  If not, the listing is automatically made available to the search.  

Configuring Your Account to Allow Location Registration

Like configuring Location Logins, configuring Location Registration is pretty straight forward.  First go to Settings>Setup>Options.  To turn on Location Registration, just check off Allow Location Registration and hit Save



Next, you can choose whether or not locations are automatically approved which makes them immediately available to search or if you want them to go through the approval workflow.  If you select Approve User added locations, new locations go into an "unapproved" status and the Account Admin receives an email notifying them of the new registration.  The Account Admin then needs to login, review the listing and approve it.  For instructions on approving listings go to the article Approving New or Modified Location Listings



Providing the URL for the Register Page


When you turn-on Location Registration in the admin a register page is automatically created which can be accessed from several places.  


  • A SIGN UP link will appear at the bottom of the custom branded login page located at:  http://<subdomain>.bullseyelocations.com/admin/login.aspx
  • A direct URL is made available at: http://<subdomain>.bullseyelocations.com/Admin/Registration.aspx?ClientID=<ID>

Display Register Link on Interface


Bullseye can also be configured to automatically display a login link at the top of the search page. 





This option is available if Location Registration is turned on and can be configured through the search interface editor.  Go to Interfaces and select Edit.  On the options tab in the Section for Results Options, select the link for "Login/Edit Location Link" and hit Save
