Special Registration URLs

There are a few uses cases in which you may want to add one of the special purpose codes to the end of the normal registration URL.

Present Log In Page First

If you want the registrant to see the option to log in when they first come to your registration page, instead of the Find your Record page, you can do that by creating a special URL. The registrant still has the option of registering without logging in by clicking the link Register Without Logging In. This is used when you want to encourage people to log in, without forcing them to do so.

Sample Screen Using ?login=true

Step 1
Copy the normal Try Registration link for the registration organization and paste it into a text editor or into a new browser window where you are not already logged on to your TouchPoint database.
Step 2

Add this to the end of the URL, just after the Org ID# - ?login=true

Sample:

https://MyChurch.tpsdb.com/OnlineReg/2190?login=true

Step 3

Copy the new URL and use that on your website for registration.

Always test your links before you make it live.

This will present the Log In page where the person will use his Username (or email address) and Password to start the registration.

Note

You can email a RegisterLink, which is as though the person is logged in.

Tip

If you want to force the registrant to log in, you can use the Setting Disallow Anonymous.

Do Not Display Family List at First

This addition to the URL will take the logged in person directly to the question part of the registration, instead of displaying the family list first and having him select the person to register. Once he completes his own registration, if there is an option to add another person, his family will display after he selects Add Another Registration.

Step 1
Copy the normal Try Registration link for the registration organization and paste it into a text editor or into a new browser window where you are not already logged on to your TouchPoint database.
Step 2

Add this to the end of the URL, just after the Org ID# - ?showfamily=false

Sample:

https://MyChurch.tpsdb.com/OnlineReg/219410?showfamily=false

Step 3
Copy the new URL and use that on your website for registration.

Note

TouchPoint will only display a family list when a person logs in or uses a RegisterLink2. Remember, there is an option on each registration to Allow Only One. When that is used, after the individual registers there will not be an option to register someone else.

Using Multiple Special URLs

If you want to use both of the above-mentioned URLs, you would have to configure the end of the URL as follows:

https://karen2.tpsdb.com/OnlineReg/33

Notice that we used the ? before the first additional code, and the & before the second one.

Sample:

https://MyChurch.tpsdb.com/OnlineReg/219410?showfamily=false&login=true
