Setting up the auto-generated welcome email


This topic describes how to set up the auto-generated welcome email.

Note
You must have rights to the Sites & Settings section of Brightspot to perform this task and the Users integration must be enabled for your site. For more information, see the Sites Management and Users Integration topics.

To set up the auto-generated welcome email:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Sites & Settings and select the site for which you want to set up the auto-generated email.
  2. Click Front End > Authentication.
  3. In the Authentication Settings field, select Set. This opens a section that displays the New User Set Password Flow section.

  4. Toggle the Send New User Password Invite Email field to on.
  5. Enter the email address that the auto-generated email should appear to be sent from in the Set Password Email From Address field.
  6. Enter the subject for the auto-generated email in the Set Password Email Subject field.
  7. Enter the body of the email in the Set Password Email Body field.

    Tip
    To generate the link that allows the new user to reset their password, the body of the email must contain SET_PASSWORD_URL. Add SET_PASSWORD_URL at the position in the email where you want the reset password link to appear.

    See the Set Password Email Body field in the image above to for an example of this.

  8. Click Save. Whenever a new user signs up to your site, they will get a welcome email.
