Forms automatically create a new user
If someone submits a form, and their email is not in the system, Presspoint automatically creates a new User based on the fields in the form.
If you did not include the Email field in the form, then “firstname.lastname@example.org” is used as the email and a new user is automatically created.
The user is NOT automatically notified of the new account: some Presspoint customers just use Presspoint as an internal CRM, so their customers never know they have a record in the system.
Appending existing user accounts
If the user does already exist on the system and he submits a form, you have a choice whether to allow the new form data to append his Profile on a form-by-form basis.
Usually people want this, but because it is technically possible for someone without a user’s password to update profile fields via a public form, you have the option to lock it down.
