We are happy to announce the release of the Edit Profile Approved by Admin Add-on for Profile Builder. The Add-on extends the functionality of Profile Builder by enabling admin approval on edit profile fields. Until the fields have been approved the old values will be displayed for everyone else.

The functionality of the add-on has multiple use cases, some of them would be:

  • making sure that users don’t change publicly visible fields in their profile to improper words;
  • reviewing the email address of the user before it is changed;
  • monitoring changes of your user profiles;
  • approving avatar image changes.

How Admin Approval on Edit Profile Fields Works on the Front-End

After a user updates his profile and fields that require admin approval have been modified, those fields will be marked accordingly (yellow background and a description) and will also be notified at the top of the form.

Front-end user notification that admin approval is required

Administrators have a couple of extra options on the edit profile forms, after activating the add-on, that will allow them to filter users that require approval and approve individual fields.

Notification Emails

The administrator of the site will also receive a notification email when a user has updated his profile and has modified at least one field that requires approval. At the same time, the user will receive a notification email as well after an admin has reviewed his profile and clicked the “Finish Review and Send Notifications”
