    Just as a note because it isn't too clear at the moment and I have yet to write up some information (will be a while). Be sure to check the options and read the note under the setup option! Important!

    I think the real money (more demand) for this is for getting existing users (not new users) to complete their profiles.
    There would be more demand for that than for Just New recruits.


    This is very useful, but ANYTIME you make new users do more, you get less new users.

    Other situations: Admin decides to add a custom field (and wants everyone to fill it out) ..... this type of addon could help get people to do it !

    Err no... you don't get less users from making them do more. You get rid of people who would never contribute anyway from the get go and you get filled out profiles done straight away from people who will contribute. Also it isn't "making" them do anything.

    As for your suggestion. I have thought of something like that but it is out of the scope of this add-on. It would be a more custom mini notification thing, kind of like when facebook adds a new feature and explains it.

    Actually, having Profile completion step can be a big help to new users as it familiarizes them with your community and how things work. At the same time the process becomes rewarding as each time they complete a step they see their progress increase.

    In the interest of encouraging users though, some ideas;
    • Add an option to "skip" the steps for users who don't need it, simply adding a "close" button to the top right would suffice in my opinion and is in-line with other such features on sites like linkedin.
    • Add the ability to connect Trophies to completion steps and visually indicate that completing this step rewards that trophy
    • Make a step-by-step feature, where the user only sees one "step" at a time and has a visual cue that shows he is at step 1/5 for example (so as not to overwhelm them with a big list).
    That said I honestly think this addon will only encourage new users, rather than scare them away.

    I'll sign up to linkedin to see it.
    Trophies are already possible, they are up to the admin.
    There will be a step by step thing coming soon, all ajax run so no page reloads etc.

    That's very weird. Once editing the profile again it should fix itself.

    Also if you were changing things while they were doing stuff that issue could come up, if a task was deleted or something... could that be the case here?

    Hello! On your website price without discount ($10 off). Is this bug (today only 14 July, not 20)?
  19. Naatan

    Naatan Well-Known Member

    The original price is 30 dollars, so minus 10 makes 20. Looks correct to me on his site.

    Robbo Well-Known Member

    Will look into it. This was reported but I thought it was fixed with a previous fix.

    Like Naatan said, full price is $29.95.
