Configure User Account Setup Process

Allow anonymous users, force email confirmation or single sign-on

Updated over a week ago

Some use cases may require anonymity. Maybe your users' information is private, or you don’t want to be influenced by details you don’t feel you need. Or you want to make the process to participate as simple as possible for your end-users - without using single sign-on. We let you decide whether users need to reveal who they are or even have an account to leave feedback

To customize the access permissions to your board navigate to Settings and scroll down to the End-user section.

Allow anonymous posting and voting

By default, the user is prompted to enter an email address when performing an action that requires registration (voting, posting, or commenting). You can work around this by enabling the "Anonymous voting and posting" option.

ℹ️ If this option is enabled, the user will still be asked to enter an email address, but an additional skip button will be added.

Setting up Registered Accounts

For user accounts you have two options:

  • Registration requires email verification: If enabled, the user will get a four-digit code sent to his email on sign-up for a new account. You can disable this option to make it easier for new users to give feedback quickly. Without the barrier of first confirming the email address.

  • Sign-in requires email confirmation: If enabled, the user will get a four-digit code sent to his email on sign-in.
    ⛔️ ATTENTION: if this option is disabled, ANY user can log in with any email address and will have full access to that account. There are very few use cases where it may be useful to disable this option.

Using Single sign-on

Single sign-on allows you to sign in your user' automatically as soon as they open the widget or visit your standalone page without the need to provide an email address. Learn more about Single sign-on.

You can enable the "Force single sign-on (SSO) option", to make sure end-users are redirected to your login page when performing an action that requires registration.
