Configuring Terms and Conditions

You can write a page that describes your community's terms and conditions. In the Admin Console, you can indicate what the terms and conditions page should include.

Fastpath: Admin Console: People > Settings > Terms and Conditions

If you have SSO enabled, users will be prompted to accept the terms and conditions only when they log into the community for the first time. Without SSO enabled, users are prompted to accept the terms and conditions when they register for access to the community.

Setting Description
Enable/Disable Terms & Conditions Click Enabled to enable the terms and conditions feature, meaning that the registration user interface will display the terms and conditions form you specify (either by writing your own or linking to them at the URL you give in the Admin Console).
Force existing users to re-accept modifications Click Yes to require that users who've already accepted the terms and conditions do so again. You might want to do this, for example, if you update your terms and conditions and want people to accept the new ones.
Terms & Conditions source to be used Indicate whether you want the terms and conditions page to consist of the text you type in the box at the bottom of the Term & Conditions Settings page, or to be displayed from a URL that you give.

Specifying the Terms and Conditions Text to Display

At the bottom of the Admin Console's Terms & Conditions Settings page, you can either type the text that should be displayed for terms and conditions, or link to a page at a particular URL.

To use text you type:
  1. Next to Terms & Conditions source to be used, click Internal, from the editor below.
  2. In the editing window near the bottom of the console page, type or paste the terms and conditions text you want to use. Notice that you can format the text with the buttons at the top of the editing window.
  3. Be sure to click Save Settings when you're finished configuring on this page.
To use an external page reachable via a URL:
Note: Due to Microsoft security issues in the Internet Explorer browser, the Terms & Conditions will not display correctly if they are not stored on the same server as the Jive app when the Jive app is set up to use HTTPS. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you store the Terms & Conditions within the Jive app or on the same server as the Jive app. If this is not possible, you could prevent this error by adding the Terms & Conditions URL to the list of IE's trusted sites or set IE to allow iframes to load remote sites.
  1. Next to Terms & Conditions source to be used, click External, from the URL below.
  2. Next to External Terms & Conditions URL, enter the URL that points to your terms and conditions page.
  3. Be sure to click Save Settings when you're finished.
