The user table

This table is a template for user data that will be written to the new user topics. If you stick to these basic fields you can just use the first example below. If you want to write more data (like phone number or country) read the section Customizing user data as well.
 

Example format

The following should be inserted into your UnprocessedRegistrations as a table. This is the most simple format:
<noautolink>
%EDITTABLE{}%
| FirstName | LastName | Email | WikiName |
| Test | User | you@example.com | TestUser |
</noautolink>

Usage:

  1. Copy this text to your clipboard
  2. Click through and paste this on UnprocessedRegistrations.
  3. Add and customize entries, save table. Note that the first row must not contain bolded entries, so don't apply any formatting.
  4. Return here

Customizing user data

You can write additional data to the new user topics. Do this by enhancing the user table with additional field names as table headers.

Any fields you define in this table will end up in the User's topic. If a form (such as UserForm) is attached to NewUserTemplate then the data will go in as META:FIELDS, meaning that you can use SEARCH formfield constructs to search.

If you use the UserForm then ensure that it contains all the fields you define here. Otherwise they will disappear when the user edits their home topic!

Mandatory fields

  • WikiName
  • FirstName
  • LastName

Optional fields

Customized table example

Make sure that the extra fields also appear on the UserForm.

  2. You are responsible for ensuring that the fieldnames appear in the TWiki.UserForm
  3. Only administrators can run this.
