    New User Approve

    Add to List

    New User Approve plugin automates the user registration process on your WordPress website.

    Typically, the user registration process on a WordPress website is pretty straightforward. When a new user registers, their unique identity is created in the website’s database. An email is then sent to the new user that contains their login credentials. Simple as it can be, but it goes to say that there is plenty of room for customization.

    Introducing New User Approve – a new way to register users on your WordPress website.

    Here is how the process works with New User Approve:

    1. A user registers on the site, and their ID is created.
    2. An email is sent to the administrators of the site.
    3. An administrator is then given a choice to either approve or deny the registration request.
    4. An email is then sent to the user indicating whether they were approved or denied.
    5. If the user is approved, an email will be sent to them that includes their login credentials.
    6. Until the user is approved, they will not be able to login to the site.

    Only approved users will be allowed to log in to the site. Thus, users waiting for approval or the ones rejected will not be able to login to the site – Simple, straightforward, and effective.

    The user status can be updated even after the initial approval/denial request. The admin can search approve, deny and pending users. Also, users that have been created before the activation of New User Approve will be treated as approved users.

    Latest Update – New User Approve v2.3

    Automation Made Easier With Zapier
    Zapier allows you to automate mundane tasks and processes without the need for a developer. Zapier uses a simple trigger and action for creating commands, which in the case of New User Approve are:

    • User Approved – Triggers when a user is approved.
    • User Denied – Triggers when a user is denied.

    With Zapier, you can use the trigger events for applications like Gmail, Google Sheets, Slack and more.

    Send Invitation Codes
    Make the registration process easier by sending the invitation code to those who you want to skip the process altogether. People who user the invitation codes are auto-approved by the system.

    The invitation codes will be genrated manually and work smoothly with WooCommerce’s registration mechanism. They can also be edited and deactivated at any time.

    New User Approve v2.0 – Improved User Interface & Code Optimization
    The overall interface has been revised and improved for a trendy, fresh, and minimal look. The latest design includes a whole new look and experience for the layout so your users can have an experience unlike any other.

    The clean and easy user interface always helps the existing and the new customers gain confidence in your website.

    New User Approve is compatible with WooCommerce, MemberPress, WP-Foro, Learndash, and Ultimate Member, BuddyPress, Zapier.
