Signup form overview.
Logo, Title, and Background Image
Under the Features tab of block settings, you can add a logo to the block, change the title, as well as set a background image for the whole block.
Sign up with Google
If you enable this option, a Sign up with Google button will be added to the form, allowing your users to sign up with their Google Accounts.
Here, you can allow users to sign up only from specified domains. To do so, you need to add these domains inside the Allowed domains field. For instance, if you want only people with "softr.io" domains (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up, you need to enter "softr.io" into Allowed domains and hit Enter (see below). You can add as many domains as needed.
By default, you have three fields: Name, Email, and Password, where the Name field can be enabled or disabled. The placeholder texts of these fields can be modified as well. However, it's also possible to add any number of additional fields after connecting an Airtable users base, which we'll discuss next.
Adding Custom Fields
You also have the option of customizing the Signup block by adding more fields. The values of additional fields will be stored in your data source, therefore you need to have a data source connected in the Users section. If you haven't connected a users base data source yet, you'll see a Create Data Source option under the Signup Form section in the Features tab.
After clicking the Create button, you'll need to follow the process described here to connect a data source where user data will be synced. Further on, in your database, you can define additional fields to store extra user parameters and add those to the Signup form as well. Let's consider a specific example to give you a better idea of how this works.
Let's connect an Airtable users base, where we have added an additional Position field that indicates the position of the registered employee within the company.
Now, we can add a position field to our Signup form and link it to this field on Airtable as done below.
As a result, the users can now select a Position on signup, and it will be stored in the connected Airtable base as shown below.
Sign Up Button
Lastly, there's the Sign Up button. The button Text can be changed, while the Action is predefined and can't be modified.
Terms and Conditions
Show Sign In
Choose whether you want to show a sign-in button (takes the user to the sign-in page) or not.
On Sign up
Lastly, we need to set what page the user should be taken to after successfully signing up.
By adding reCaptcha authentication to your sign up form, you'll protect it from getting spammed or misused.
To set up reCaptcha, you need to go to https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create and enter your site details as shown below.
In the next screen, you just need to copy the Site Key and Secret Key.
To finalize the setup, paste the Site Key and Secret Key in your Softr app's Settings => Integrations => Google reCaptcha.
