Social Login

By default, Social Login is enabled allowing volunteers to register via Facebook and/or login via their facebook account.  (If you do not wish to allow login with facebook - please open a help desk ticket and request that it be disabled.

Note:  Logging in with LinkedIn is optional, and can be activated for your account by request.

Here's how a volunteer can associate their Facebook account with Hands On Connect and be able to login via Facebook:

When social login is enabled on your site - you'll see the "Log in with Facebook" button on the login widgets.

Before being able to use the Login with Facebook button, a volunteer must associate their HandsOn Connect account with your Facebook account.  To do this a user should do the following:

1.  Log into HandsOn Connect normally.

2.  In "My Account" click on the new menu option called "Social Login Settings" (or 'Social Login") in your navigation.  If you do not have this in your navigation, create a menu item that links to /social-connections
