Self Registration - Ability to Add Multiple Approvers

Administrators can now include multiple approvers for self-registration groups, reducing the risk of prolonged approval delays if any requests go unaddressed in the self-registration functionality.

Administrators must first create a group that contains the approvers to add multiple user record approvers to a self-registration group. Administrators can now select the group when setting the user record approvers on the Self Registration Approval Settings step.

When a user self-registers for the portal, all approvers receive the approval request in their inbox and an email to approve the record. Any approver can approve the record, and the request is removed from all approvers' pending request queue once it is approved.

To create a self-registration group, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Organizational Units > Manage Self Registration Groups. Then, click the Create New Self Registration Group link.


  • Administrators can select static or dynamic groups, but Cornerstone recommends using static groups to ensure the correct users are included.​
  • Customers must add and remove users from their group of approvers as needed.
  • Administrators can select only one group per self-registration link.
  • Approval workflows are out of the scope of this enhancement.
