New and existing CivicRec users can now connect using their Facebook or Google Plus account information.
Enabling Google/Facebook Login
- Navigate to: Configuration > Organization > Organizational Options
- Ensure that 'Yes' is selected for the 'Allow Google/Facebook Login' prompt:
Logging Into CivicRec
- Users can create their account by logging in with Facebook or Google. They can also use the traditional sign-up form to create a CivicRec account.
- Whether the user is new or existing, select the preferred option to connect
For New Users
Account creation is one click away for new users who prefer to use their Facebook or Google account to log in. The first time a user connects from this screen, a new account will be created for the user. Otherwise they will be logged into their existing account.
For Existing Users
Users who have already connected with a social account will be logged into their existing account. The option to log in with your traditional CivicRec username and password is also available.
Connecting an Existing Account
To connect an existing account, a user can go into their Account area, and click the "Connected Accounts" tab. Linking your Facebook or Google account to your CivicRec account will allow users to log into that CivicRec account via their connected social account.
