Enhanced and Additional Features of User Registration 3.0

Now, let’s get into detail about all the additional and enhanced features provided to users with User Registration 3.0 release!

1. Form Builder Design

The design of the form builder in User Registration 3.0 is revised and improved for a better user experience.

In User Registration 2.3.5 form builder design was good. But it wasn’t as refined and detailed as the new version.

Moreover, in the latest version of User Registration 3.0, the form builder design has a distinct builder area for an amazing User Experience (UX).

Further, icons are being added to all the premium add-ons. This way you’ll be able to easily distinguish between the available free options and the premium options.

Also, you couldn’t get the premium add-on right from the fields page in the User Registration previously.

But now you can simply click on the premium add-on, you want to get. Then, you’ll get an option to upgrade plans. If you already have a license but the add-ons are missing, you can install and activate them directly from the form builder.

User experience is all that matters for the User Registration plugin’s team. No wonder they’ve left no stone unturned to make the UX better than ever before with their amazing form builder design!

2. Global Setting Design

The latest global setting design of User Registration 3.0 will let you manage the form’s general and login options, and front-end messages in a breeze.

In the earlier version of User Registration, the global setting and its sub-setting were arranged in horizontal order.

To get a better idea, let’s look at the screenshot below!

Contrarily, in the latest User Registration 3.0, the global setting and its subsetting are arranged in vertical order.

As you can see, they’re arranged systematically inside the sidebar on the left side.

Also, you’ll get to see the 3-4 premium add-ons that our users are using, or that you might be in need of! You might require them to make a refined login form, registration form, or any other form.

So, if you’re interested in using premium add-ons, you can easily switch plans as well.

Furthermore, the collapse menu is absolutely stunning and functional! So, if you think you need more space while customizing your forms, you can use the collapse menu option.

After that, you can change settings in a wider area as shown in the screenshot below.

4. Search Global Settings Bar
