Our platform employs an approval system for new sign-ups, ensuring a smooth registration process while maintaining data integrity. This article provides insights into how our current approval system functions, highlighting scenarios where users are either auto-approved or marked as pending approval.

Auto-Approval for Existing Records

  1. When a user already has a record uploaded to our platform and registers using the same email address associated with that record, they are automatically approved without generating a notification for your review.

  2. This streamlined process is made possible because the email address provided during registration matches the one on their existing profile.

  3. As a result, the system recognizes the user and approves their registration automatically.

  4. This design choice is based on the assumption that profiles uploaded to the platform are intended for individuals who will eventually register to become verified members.

Pending Approval for New Email Addresses

  1. In contrast, when a user logs in using a new email address that is not associated with their record on Almabase, they are marked as pending approval.

  2. This indicates that their registration necessitates manual verification or review before granting access to the platform.

  3. Refer to this article to approve these users.

  4. Users in this category will see a red banner notification upon registering on the platform.
