If you need to set up Connect or create a Participant Type, please begin by following the article called Apricot Connect, then return here.
When you register a participant in Connect, you are giving them access to log in to Connect. Any individual participants you do not want to have access to Connect can remain in your Participant Type as unregistered.

*Select the individuals you wish to register.
If you would like to customize the email that will be sent to your participants with their login information, click the text to "Add some custom email language." (Optional)
Click Create Account
*Please note children under 13 may not enter data in Connect, so you should avoid registering them if your Participant Type include records for children under 13.
Upon registering the participants, you will receive an Account Creation notification like the one above. This will show which of the individuals should have successfully received an email with a link to set up their Connect account.
An error may be present if the email address is already registered in Connect or if the participant record does not contain an email address.
If a Connect Participant opts out of Connect, this cannot be undone and they will need to be registered again with a new email.
Initial Connect Registration invite links expire after 30 days. If this occurs, the participant will need to be registered once again in order to gain access.
