I'd like our site be able to assign each new registrant, based on a custom field value the user chooses, to a specific usergroup as soon as the new registrant completed his or her email confirmation. So if the user chooses value 'A' for that custom field, this user will have to be assigned to a secondary usergroup called 'A'. All the usergroups have been configured already via ACP.
I am aware of the usergroup promotions feature in XF, but if I understand correctly, it is set to be run once every hour. I need the function that any new registrant be automatically assigned immediately to a specific usergroup once the registration is complete, because there is a specific private node(associated with each usergroup) that I need the user be able to enter as soon as their registration is complete.
This doesn't sound hard. Can this be done in ACP or template edits? Thanks in advance!
