We need to create a Contact form on the website with the fields such as 'First Name', 'Last Name', 'e-mail address', 'Message Text', etc., that a user could contact us sending questions, etc.
Then we'd contact a user to discuss the possibility to be a member (purchase a product/service). So, we don't want to provide the ability for the user to create a login and a password through the asp login control. We want to send him a temporary password and login later after we decide he/she can be a member. The user login can be the user's e-mail address.
The questions are:
- Should we send the user information to the asp profile right from the first user contact info submission? Can we do this as the user won't have a password? Or we need to create a separate db table for it?
- Can we have a hidden field on a profile the administrator could see if the user is a member or just a new user? Or we could see it through Roles with the link to profile later when we make the user a member?
- How we could assign a temporary password to a user when we make them a member? Probably, we could use their login (e-mail address) and do the registration from the asp Registration control entering the temporary password ourselves then sending some automatic e-mail to adv
