Free up admin time and give new learners easy access to your training content by generating a link that directs to a self-registration landing page. You can also have learners sign up and be added automatically to a group of your choosing.

Enable Self-Registration

To enable self-registration, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Manage tab and click Settings.

  2. Select Enable self-registration.

  3. Click Save Changes.

That's it! Copy the auto-generated URL that displays after your changes are saved and provide that to new learners. Existing users can't use the self-registration page.

The URL takes registrants to a landing page where they enter their email. If you've uploaded a logo and selected a brand color in your account settings, they're reflected here.

Once learners click Create Account, Rise sends an email invitation as if you'd manually invited them. Once they complete registration, they'll appear under the Users tab with a Self-registered tag.

Self-registered users are invited as learners. Prior to them creating their account, you can manage their invitation (including changing their role and resending their invitation) as you would any pending user. These users also have the Self-registered tag.

The auto-generated URL is valid for new registrants only if self-registration is enabled in Settings.

Create Group Self-Registration Links

One of the best ways to get learners into training quickly is by assigning them to groups. When a user is part of a group, they're automatically enrolled in all training that the group is enrolled in.

Once self-registration is enabled for your account, you can create self-registration that automatically adds new learners to a specific group.

  1. On the group tab, hover over an entry in the list and click Add a self-registration link.

  2. Click the Copy button and share it with your new learners!

When learners self-register using the generated URL, they're automatically added to the associated group. These URLs are valid as long as self-registration is enabled on your account.

Disable Self-Registration

To disable self-registration for a specific group, delete the URL by clicking the trash can icon.

To disable self-registration for your entire account, deselect Enable self-registration on the Settings tab and click Save Changes. You'll no longer be able to generate group self-registration URLs.

In both cases, users can still complete their account registration if they've used the provided URL and generated an email invitation.

Note: If you re-enable self-registration, non-group registrants will have to use the new auto-generated URL. The previous URL will no longer be valid. Group self-registration URLs remain valid. If learners have a problem with a group URL after the feature was disabled and re-enabled, ask them to clear their browser's cache.
