RideAmigos offers several different methods for allowing users to register for your programs. The most common of these methods is self-registration using name and email address. Other options include registering with a Facebook account, or via a 3rd-party single sign-on (SSO) system.
Basic Self Registration
Clicking the ‘Register’ button in the menu bar initiates the registration process.
All platforms require a minimum of name, email address, and a password for users to self-register.
By default, step 2 of registration requires users to enter home and work ZIP Codes. Users can also select any public networks they wish to join, such as regional or employer networks.
Once a user is registered, they are immediately logged in.
Additional Registration Steps
Depending on the nature of the transportation programs you are running using RideAmigos, you may wish to include additional steps or questions during user self-registration.
- Employee or similar ID number
- Full home and work addresses instead of ZIP Codes
- Phone number
- Filtered or multi-stage network selection
- Preferred commute mode and times
- Interest in alternative commute modes
- Additional program interests
All additional registration questions can be made optional or mandatory, grouped into additional pages, and steps renamed. You can find some examples from customer sites here.
If you want to allow self-registration but still restrict access, you can do so by only allowing users to register using specific email domains. Contact our support team if you need to change or update your platform’s domain restrictions.
Using single sign-on (SSO) is another method for restricting platform access, but requires significantly more configuration than domain restriction. SSO also bypasses all of the usual self-registration processes. Read more about registration via single sign-on.
