Project Settings | Appearance Tab

Your Project Settings include essential details to finalize before launching your registration, like changing your project name, changing your soft descriptor, enabling Purchase Protection, embedding the iframe on your website, adding tabs of additional info for your attendees, and more.

If you have any questions about a checklist to review before clicking “Open for Registration and Login”, feel free to reach out to our Support Team (or your assigned Project Manager).

For now, we’ll review the Appearance Tab.

To access the Appearance Tab, click Settings and then Project Settings.

Then click the Appearance option at the top.

The appearance tab has a number of useful functions, which are broken into categories:

  • Front-end Behavior
  • Mobile Front-end Behavior
  • Front-end Top Bar
  • Before Registration / Logging in
  • Progress Bar Display Settings
  • Top and Side Links

We’ll dive into the details of each below:

Front-End behavior

front-end behavior

Scroll to the system on page load

The system auto scrolls the user to the system so they can start registration right away if it is not seen. This allows for better usability. When “off” the system will stay at the top of the page.

“On” is recommended setting.

Top Padding For System Scrolling on Tablets & Desktop

This is the top space that the system will leave when it scrolls to the top of the system. Set this value if you have a sticky menu on your site so that the top of the system is not hidden by it. Values are in number and represent the number of pixels the system will leave for padding.

Mobile Front-end behavior

Auto redirect to mobile-optimized site for phones

When the system detects a phone it will redirect the user to a phone optimized site. This makes sure users can register easily on mobile devices. When “off” they stay on the embedded page. Turn off only if you have a mobile optimized website.

“On” is recommended setting.

Top Padding For System Scrolling on Phones

This is the top space that the system will leave when it scrolls to the top of the system. Set this value if you have a sticky menu on your site so that the top of the system is not hidden by it. Values are in number and represent the number of pixels the system will eave for padding.

Front-end Top Bar

In this section, you can control how the front-end top bar works for your applicants.

Before Registration / Logging in

before registration / logging in

Show “Register” button

If hidden the system will not present the “Register” button on the top right of the screen.

“Show” is recommended setting.

“Register” button text (default green button on top right of front-end screen)

This is where you can change the displayed text. “Create Account” is a popular change.

Show “Login” button

If hidden, the system will not present the “Login” button on the top right of the screen. This will not block access for returning users. It will just remove direct access to the system login form. It is not recommended to hide the login button unless your system is completely anonymous. If you wish to block the ability to login you will need to disable the system completely.

“Show” is recommended setting.

“Login” button text (default grey button on top right of front-end screen)

Show “Login to my account” link on top left of screen

If hidden the system will not present the “Login to my account” link on the top left of the screen. This link provides an additional way for users to access the login form. The same conditions apply to hiding this option as hiding the login button.

“Show” is recommended setting.

“Login to my account” text

This is where you can change the displayed text. “Login” is a popular change.

Progress Bar Display Settings

progress bar display settings

Show “My Application” progress bar and navigation menu

If hidden the system will not present the “My Application” progress bar on the top of the screen right after registering or logging in. This bar acts as a navigation portal so it is advised to display it.

Note: If the project only has one form the system will not present the navigation menu by default.

“Show” is recommended setting.

“My Application” progress bar and navigation text

Changing this text will only affect the main account presentation. For sub-accounts, the system always presents their name. Note that when the head-account only has one form, the system will not present the navigation menu by default.

Show “My Application” bar for sub-accounts (children)

If hidden the system will not present the “My Application” bar on the top right for each sub-account. Hiding this element will make understanding which sub-account they are viewing difficult.

“Show” is recommended setting.

Top and Side Links

You can set links to present at the top and side of the front-end. Regpack is built to make sure the user goes through a process tailor made for them therefore creating these links is not recommended as it might divert the user from the recommended process.

If you have any questions about the consequences of diverging from the recommended settings, please contact our Support Team (support@regpacks.com) for expert advice!
