Topic: Editing the title / gender selection of the user registration form  (Read 51187 times)

We would like to update the available selections of the user registration form for title / gender.
Or: We would like to add a field "gender" to our registration form.
Or: We would like to hide/deactivate one or more titles of the user registration form.

How do we proceed?

We'd recommend to edit the list of titles / salutations according to your needs.

Please go to:
Overview => Settings => Settings for Users Registration and User Options => Manage Titles / Salutations
to add new options.

Please note that you cannot delete the four/five standard definitions, as they are e.g. required for the import functions.
However, you can hide them, so they are not shown on the user registration page.

If you want to hide one or more titles / salutations, please select the entry you want to update and click on the button "Edit Salutation / Title".
In the section titled “Select the input forms where this code is available “ you are able to activate and deactivate titles / salutations by selecting the relevant checkbox (see image).

Please test your settings.

With the default setting of ConfTool Pro, only the salutations Mr., Ms., Dr. and Prof. are shown on the registration form.
If you require a gender specific selection of the academic titles, we recommend to hide the default entries „Dr.“ and „Prof.“ and to add „Dr. (f)“, „Dr. (m)“, „Prof. (f)“ and „Prof. (m)“ to the list of available titles (see Image 1)

To do so, please go to:
Overview => Settings => Settings for User Registration => Manage Titles / Salutations

Disable the default entries „Dr.“ and „Prof.“ as described above and then click on „Create New Salutation / Title“ to enter all required data for these four new entries (see image 2).

NB: For clients from German speaking countries we also offer a gender-neutral version of the whole language setup (using „BenutzerInnen“, „AutorInnen“, „GutachterInnen“ etc.).
Please contact us if you require this version.
