Sometimes there is a concern with anonymous users abusing claiming in Parties or leaving inappropriate or abusive notes and messages when claiming. You can now disable all anonymous claims in your Parties to discourage and prevent this activity from occurring in the future. On the Settings page check the "Disable anonymous/unverified claiming" box.
Once the box is checked, customers with unverified accounts will need to verify the email address associated with their account. This allows you to have a valid email address to send invoices and other communications. An unverified account will see this message, "You must verify your account to claim with this consultant."
Customers that have not verified their accounts can easily do so by following the link in the message. They will go to their Profile Settings, where they can resend the verification email. Customers will click the link sent in the message to the email address associated with their Sonlet account to verify the account and resume claiming.
Here's an example of the verification email that automatically gets sent whenever someone signs up for Sonlet or requests the email from their Settings page.
