How to Manage Memberships And User Accounts

Creating user accounts and managing access to exclusive content in the Members Area
Tilda allows you to manage individual access to the website pages and add the sign-up feature so that only users with membership can access the exclusive content.
You can manage user accounts in Site Settings → Membership → Manage members.
How to add members manually
There are two ways of adding members to your website: manually creating user profiles or enabling open registration.

To add a member manually, go to Tilda Members and click on Add New Member.
You need to provide information about the user to grant them access. You may create a name and a login, add the user to a group of members, generate or create a password.
After you have manually added them, the user can log in to their account from the members area's home page or group page. The link should look like this:
How to set up a sign-up page
A sign-up page is created automatically. You can enable it in the Members Area Settings.
You can find the link to the sign-up page on the main page of Tilda Members. The link should look like this:
How to set up a sign-up form
If you want to create a custom sign-up page or add users to the website only after they have sent you a message or payment, use a data capture tool specially designed for Tilda Members.

You can activate it in the Site Settings → Forms.
When setting up the "Members Area" data capture tool, you can select the group of members the new user should be added to after they complete the sign-up form. Select a form block from the "Form and Button" category, customize it, and select the data capture tool's checkbox in the Content panel of the block.
If you have several sign-up forms for different courses, there is a chance that the users will fill out different forms with the same data. Since Tilda filters out duplicate applications, you need to add different hidden fields in the Content panel of the form blocks, for example, hidden course title fields, so that the data is not duplicated completely.
How to manage paid memberships and access to exclusive content
To enable paid registration, add a block with a shopping cart and assign a payment system in the Site Settings → Payment Systems. After assigning one, open its settings and select the "Send info to data collection services only after payment" checkbox. Members will be added to groups only after the payment has gone through.
Here's an example:

You are selling an online course and setting up a checkout page. Add a block with a shopping cart where the "Email" field is required. Connect the "Members Area" data capture tool to the shopping cart and specify the group the new member should be added to after they complete payment.
Go to the Site Settings → Payment Systems and select the "Send info to data collection services only after payment" checkbox in the settings of your preferred payment system.
Go to Tilda Members and specify the price of membership in the Group Settings—that would be yet another method of verifying the user's payment.
This is how it works:
  • The user clicks "Buy" on the course page
  • The shopping cart opens, and the user fills out the form with their data
  • The user proceeds to the checkout page
  • They make their payment
  • Tilda receives a payment confirmation
  • Tilda creates a user account and emails the login data to the user
  • User logs in to their account and can start using study materials right away

The whole process is automated and does not involve human resources, although you can configure sending a personal payment confirmation if you want.
If you sell multiple courses, you need to create a separate payment page with a separate shopping cart for each one.
How to manage groups and access to specific pages
You can divide members into separate groups. You can also create a list of specific pages they can access as well as an index page—a title page featuring all the materials.

People can sign up for a membership group from the group page.

Click on Create new group to create a new membership group.
Enter a group name and click on Create new group.
After creating one, you will be taken to the group's main page with the "Members" and "Pages" tabs. The "Members" page features the names of all the users who have been manually added by you and completed the sign-up form. You can remove them from the group or add them to a new one by changing their status in the spreadsheet.
The "Pages" tab features all pages of your website. You can grant access to either of them to the members of the group by changing the toggle switch's position.
To hide pages from everyone, create a new group with no members and provide access to those pages only to that group. Only those members will have access to those pages whom you have manually added to that group.
A member can log in to their account from no more than three devices.
Data collection forms within the Members Area
If you collect your group members' data, you can create online forms in the Members Area. In this case, two additional variables will be added to identify members: ma_name and ma_email. The is the name and email of a group member in the Members Area.

You can disable sending email data by adding a hidden field with not_use_ma_email variable name and the value of 1. Learn more about using hidden fields in online forms.
Automatic user removal from a group
For each group, you can set a period of time during which members can access its content. After reaching the specified date, users will automatically be excluded from the group and will no longer be able to view its content.
If you set a time limit for access to a group, you can also adjust the access time of each user. To do this, open the group to which the user belongs, or search for the user in the All Members list.
