Notification of user registrations
We have made some changes to the way that you are notified when people register on your site.
Who receives notifications of new user registrations?
Previously, a notification for a new registration was sent to a single email address that was held in the site configuration for your site.
We can now configure your site to send registration email notifications to site administrators depending on their role. By default, the notifications will go to anyone with the role of administrator, which is the vast majority of your accounts. Notifications will also go to people with a role of user manager.
Some sites require people to have limited admin functions. Here are some examples:
- if you have a Secure Document Exchange, some of your admin users will only be able to add/edit/remove users, a user manager, and manage the Secure Document Exchange area but not edit any content on the site.
- if you have a Blog, some of your admin users will be able to write/edit/approve blog posts and comments, a blog administrator, but will not be able to edit any other content on the site or add/edit/remove users.
You can ask the Client Services team to change which roles receive new user registration notifications.
What does the notification email say?
The email will include the following information by default (AdderWhite is our demonstation website):
The following person has just registered on AdderWhite - http://adderwhite.co.uk,

Last Name: Smith
