Application Form in Member Areas

Recommended Posts

Thank you! Still can't figure out how to install the Form Block INTO the Member Area block. Thinking the best user experience would be to click on the button option that's included in the block which will lead to the Application / Form Block but it seems that the button option in the Member Area is very restricted with no option to add a url, etc.  Was thinking I can just add a button manually vs the one that's included in the Member Area block but then wouldn't be able to accept payment.

Is it possible to add an application form (or form block) within the member areas for members to complete prior to check out? I know that MemberSpace is an option but would really like to keep this all in SquareSpace. Thank you!

I've just come here to find this out. Squarespace seemed to imply that creating a custom checkout form would do this but I am creating a free-to-join members area, where I want to collect certain information on them joining.
Has anyone got any further on this?

Thanks, John

I've just found out (from Squarespace live chat) that it is NOT possible to customize the JOIN form for member areas. I want to capture additional information about users when they register to join my member area. This seems like a pretty basic and obvious functionality. Surely every business requires this. Am I missing something?

Functionality I'm trying to achieve:

  • 1 member page (yes, only 1 page!) in my site is only available to registered users (members)
  • if a non-signed-in user tries to go there they go to an access denied page and are challenged to JOIN or SIGN IN - once done successfully they can go to the member page
  • if a signed-in user tries to go there they get to the member page without challenge
  • This is all working fine
  • BUT ... the Squarespace JOIN form only asks for firstname, lastname, email, create password, re-type password. I want to ask for additional information: mobile number, date of birth, nationality, which part of the country they live in, interests (tags) ... this will allow me to send more relevant comms to them.

This seems pretty straightforward to me but I just can't figure it out. I've asked Squarespace live chat and they tell me I need to use their regular member area JOIN form and then ask members to fill in another separate form! This would really suck.

Would really appreciate any ideas, examples or help please.
