Good news! We’ve made it easier for users to self-signup for a user account inside of your company’s Lessonly account.
In order to make this happen, we’ve enabled some unique query string parameters you can use when sharing out your lessons to the people you want taking the lesson.
Standard Share Link
Before these query string parameters were implemented – when sharing lessons with a link – you would send a link to your new learners that looks like this: http://university.lesson.ly/1564-building-lessons-with-lesson-ly/login.
Now, thanks to parameter passing, you can change your URL to look like this: http://university.lesson.ly/1564-building-lessons-with-lesson-ly/login?view=signup.
Next, Next Level
You can then use unique parameters to pass a person’s name and email to the signup form so that a new user only has to choose a password!
Here is an example link that takes advantage of these parameters: http://university.lesson.ly/1564-building-lessons-with-lesson-ly/login?view=signup&name=Corey+Kimefirstname.lastname@example.org.
Example Use Case
How might you use this functionality? Say for example, you are automatically triggering emails out of your CRM software that you’d like to include links to training materials in. Instead of sending the links out and forcing the lesson taker to navigate to the right page to fill out their information, you can now use parameters to send them to the signup page and then dynamically add their name and email to decrease the friction to signing up.
