Member areas: manual account creation / require approval


Recommended Posts

We're working to build a members area for wholesale partners. As far as I can tell, through the Squarespace Members signup process, anyone can sign up for an account and be granted immediate access. This creates a problem for us, as we need to ensure the information beyond login is restricted to wholesale partners only.

Am I missing something? Is there a way to either mark applications as pending / requiring approval? Or, is there a way to disable the signup option all together and manually create member accounts?

Is there a way to edit the signup form itself to require additional info from prospective members?

Also, are there unique identifiers (member ID's) available somewhere in the admin backend?

I desperately need these features in place so anyone cannot sign up and get instant access to the hidden content.

I'm following this - I already use memberspace elsewhere but was hoping to simplify my Member areas as I now have 2-3 distinctly separate member sections within the website with different content for wholesale/B2B content.

I second that. I made the mistake of creating my member area before checking on this. Now I have a member area that anyone can become a member of. I need some control over who can and cannot become a member as my payment structure is done outside of the SQSP environment. I don't think directly linking to the member area via email all the time is an acceptable option.

i'm wondering -- did Squarespace not beta test the Members Area before they released it in the wild? it's obviously lacking a number of basic features one would expect from a membership area.

Same. We want to grow our new business platform on Members Area but giving up as there's no roadmap or signs of improvement. We want to see manual approval option, zapier triggers and a better community function.

Has anyone raised this as a suggested feature with SquareSpace?

I've done the same thing - created a 'free' members area for a not-for-profit client but need to

  • Collect additional information about the 'group' they belong to and their role
  • Have manual approval in place based on answers to the above

MemberSpace looks like it might do the job but I can't ask the client to swallow another $25/month having just got them to sign up to members areas...
