On your OKAST platform, by default the sign up page displays the following fields:

  • First name
  • Lasy name
  • Email address
  • A strong password

You can decide to add custom fields during registration if you wish to request specific information from your viewers, such as an address, a country, a preferred language, a gender, an age, a company etc…

To custom your sign up page, go to : Platform > Layout > Sign up Page

You will be able to add:

  • 2 fields with drop-down lists: country and languages

Note: to modify the list of predefined fields for languages, just add the corresponding language here:

  • Up to 3 “free” fields which you can translate into as many languages as you like. In this case, users will have a text field that they can fill in at their convenience.

 

Example:

Custom fields set up from the back-office

 

 

Custom fields displayed on the platform 

 

 

  • Up to 3 fields offering a drop-down menu, which you can also translate. In this case, you will limit the allowed answers and your viewers will have to choose one to finalize the signup.

To add a list of possible answers you need to use the “Advanced Settings” menu and upload a .json format with the information. Don’t panic, this is a file you can create yourself with a simple text editor. You can use the template provided by clicking on the upload button:

 

You can then modify the file with your settings. You will need to save the file in the .json format. Here is how the document should be constructed:

{
“custom_1”: “text”,
“custom_2”: “text”,
“custom_3”: {
“en”: [
“soccer”,
“tennis”,
“rugby”,
“cycling”
],
“en”: [
“soccer”,
“tennis”,
“rugby”,
“cycling”
]
}
}

 

With:

custom_1 = custom field 1

“fr” = answers in the French language. And “en” in the acronym for the English language. To know which country identifier to use, please refer to this list: https://www.iban.com/country-codes

If your fields are free fields (text only), add “text” (example: “custom_1”: “text” => in this case fields 1 & 2 of your signup form will be free fields).

If you want to display a list of answers you will have to list all your answers in square brackets, between quotation marks and separated by a comma, example:

[
“soccer”,
“tennis”,
“rugby”,
“cycling”
]

In this example, we will have 2 free fields with text and1 dropdown menu with 4 answers.

Finally, if you get an error message when uploading, you can check if your file is correct via this tool: https://jsonformatter.curiousconcept.com/
