Menu

Account form

The account form is used to create or edit accounts. The form is usually included in the account form partial.

It can be used to create/edit normal customer accounts or trade accounts.

The account form should have its action attribute set to {{ global.current_url }}


Available fields

The form has the following text fields available. You should set the name attribute to that shown below

company
firstname
lastname
date_of_birth
email
password
phone
address_line1
address_line2
address_line3
city
zip
country_id


country_id

A <select> list of available countries should be presented to the user so that they can choose their country from a drop down.

<select name="country_id">
    {% for country in countries %}
        <option value="{{ country.id }}">{{ country.name }}</option>
    {% endfor %}
</select>

Required fields

The following fields are required:

firstname
lastname
email
password


Marketing

A field with the name marketing can be included with a value of 1 to add the customer to the marketing list.


customer_sources

If the customer sources/how you heard about us app is installed, a list of available customer sources, for the user to choose from, can be rendered as below.

<select name="source">
    {% for customer_source in customer_sources %}
        <option value="{{ customer_source }}">{{ customer_source }}</value>
    {% endfor %}
</select>

Editing accounts

The variable {{ global.customer.id }} can be used to detect whether a customer is logged into an account, and is therefore editing the account details rather than creating a new account.

The view has access to all of the attributes of the customer object to render data within the value attribute of a field for the existing data stored.

The password field is not a required field if the customer is editing their account. Submitting a blank value will keep the existing password.


trade customers

The variable {{ global.customer.trade }} will return true if the user is currently logged into a trade account or is on the URL /account/trade-application (the page where a user applies for a trade account).

Some additional fields are available on the account form for trade customers

additional_data0
additional_data1
additional_data2
additional_data3
additional_data4

These fields will post to the additional data fields visible when viewing a trade account.

The contents of these fields can be outputted using the variables shown below:

{{ global.customer.additional_data[0] }}
{{ global.customer.additional_data[1] }}
{{ global.customer.additional_data[2] }}
{{ global.customer.additional_data[3] }}
{{ global.customer.additional_data[4] }}


Trade customers

The fields below are available for trade customers creating an account through the /account/trade-application page.
