Create a User Access Registration Form

  • Updated

One way for users to gain access to your portal is via a registration form. If enabled, the form will appear on the homepage of your Bynder portal for users to complete. Once completed, you’ll be able to approve or reject access to your Bynder portal. You can customize the form based on the information you want users to provide in order to help streamline the approval process.

Create a new registration form

You can set up registration form(s) for users to complete that are customized and relevant to your organization. If a user is requesting access to your Bynder portal, they can select the “Account Type” from the dropdown menu that best relates to them. You can create multiple forms or account types (up to 20).

  1. Navigate to Settingssettings_menu.png > Advanced Settings > Portal Settings
  2. In the left sidebar, click User access request.

Note: If you receive the following message: “The form has already been set up”  and cannot add a registration form, please contact your Customer Success Manager.  


3. In the Registration forms section, click Add account type.

4. In the Label section, enter an Account Type. The Account type is the name of the registration form type. For example, you can create Internal and External account types to distinguish between internal members and external partners requesting access.

5. Select the Permission profile from the dropdown menu which will automatically assign the user from this Account Type to the selected Permission profile. 

6. In the Registration form section, add relevant fields linked to the registration form.  


Note: If the requestor is accepted these fields will not be saved in their user profile.  

  • Click Edit Fields at the bottom left-hand corner to create new fields or to indicate which ones you want to require.

7. In the Require approval section, click Toggle ON I if you would like to require approval every time a user from this account type completes a registration form.



Contact Support if you want to enable whitelisting to allow all requests from within your company domain to be automatically approved.


Admin Tip: If you do not require approval, the user requests of that request type will be automatically approved and assigned to the configured permission profile. This may be a security risk for your portal, so we strongly recommend Toggle ON to require approval.

8. If you want to Notify specific approvers, you can add specific users, groups, profiles, or email addresses of active Bynder users. 

    • These users will be able to approve or reject user access requests via email without the Manage portal settings permission.


Admin Tip: Be careful in selecting non-admin approvers, as they can accept or reject user access requests.

                • To remove approvers, click next to their name.

9. Click Done to complete the account type.

Create custom form fields

In addition to the standard registration fields, you can create custom form fields and add translations.

NOTE: Information collected will not appear in the user’s profile once the user is approved.

  1. Navigate to Settings settings_menu.png > Advanced settings > Portal settings.

  2. In the left sidebar, click User Access Request.

  3. In the Available form fields section, click Edit fields.

4. Click Add Custom field.

5. Enter the Label. This will be the name of the Custom field.
