Sign up Form Customization

The sign up form for customers has many options you can can customize.

You can customise the sign-up form that new customers use to register as members or contacts. Nexudus Spaces allows you to add custom fields to the default form or customise the template that is used to generate your default form.

We recommend contacting Nexudus Spaces support when you want to customise the default sign-up form.
