User Request Verification
Once the Verified Users extension is activated on your site, users will see the Request Verification link on their profiles and accounts. They can also have the ability to cancel the request on their end.
When a user sends a request verification, you can view it at the top of the WP- Admin > Users page.
Admin can either Approve or Reject the verification request when you hover over the user.
Manual Account Verification
One key feature of the Verified Users extension is the admin can manually verify any user from the admin page with or without user request for verification. To verify a user, you can click on Approve verification request or verify when you hover over a user on the WP-Admin > Users page. Alternatively, you can also click on Edit to verify a user.
When you click on Edit, scroll down to Account Verification and choose Verified Account on the drop-down menu. Click on Update User at the bottom of the page to save changes.
Once you have verified a user, you will receive a notice at the top of the page saying, "Users have been updated." You can also see the Unverified link when you hover over the verified user.
Automatic Verification of User Community Role
You can also automatically verify users with a specific role once they register on your site. To do this, please navigate to the WP -Admin > Ultimate Member > User Roles and click on the Role Title that needs automatic verification. On the right side of the page, you will see a settings section for Verified Accounts. Click on "Yes" to automatically verify users with the role.
[Ultimate Member > User Roles > Edit role]
If you need to verify more than one user, you can do bulk verification. Go to the WP Users tab. To do this, click on the checkbox of the users you need to verify. Then select Mark Account as verified from the UM Action drop-down menu. Click on Apply button to save changes.
Once a user is verified, a blue circle with a checkmark badge will appear on their Profile and their member directory.
