1) The problem → Having a password field adds extra steps and more friction to the signup process.
2) Why is this important → People easily create accounts by creating passwords later.
3) Possible solutions we could build for you → Allow somebody to create an account, basically passwordless signup.

    Hi everyone 👋 Today we are officially releasing passwordless login & signup! This feature enables your members to access your website with a magic link instead of a password.
    • The magic link email is fully editable in the dashboard. Just like the password reset email.
    • We have new attributes that allow you to implement passwordless with your own custom forms.
    • On the Auth Providers settings page, you can enable passwordless for the prebuilt login/signup modal.
    • you can even set it as the default!
    Here’s a tutorial, and here you'll find 4 new components that you can copy and paste. Please let us know if you have any questions!

    Magic links for existing users would also be very useful and may not require the same effort as password-less signup links.

    The supplied components seem to break email submissions to mailchimp. On the signup form, is there a way to send emails to mailchimp simultaneously when the user clicks "get confirmation code"?

    Hey Duncan,

    The issue with that is the user has to confirm their account (with the password) for the webhook to trigger which means we’re going to be collecting less leads. Is there a way to have that webhook trigger (or create another webhook) that triggers when the code is requested?

    One important argument to introduce this feature: it significantly lowers the barier for people migrating from existing solutions to Memberstack. (no need to reset members passwords etc).

    Research required to fully estimate when this will be complete.
    Feedback, suggestions, and ideas are welcome.

    Hey all 👋 Exciting news! This feature is officially in development and should be ready for production use in the near future. We still have some work to do in the dashboard and in the Webflow package before it's ready

    Hey Philip 👋

    I recommend sending the email to Mailchimp using the member.created webhook or the member-created triggers in Make or Zapier. Hope this helps!

    Ahhh excellent point. Let me share this with the team and get back to you.

    If this is a major concern for you right now, I recommend making the password form primary for signup and then passwordless primary for login.
