    What is the easiest way to make an email address not required in the Registration Form?

    Also, I'd like to assign users their usernames.  How can I do that?  Their usernames will just be usr + a number

    For instance, usr1001 with 1001 being the next autonumber identity value in a table.

    Hello Matt,

    One possible way to remove the validation of the email field is to drag a Registration Widget to the Page and edit it (the Registration widget is under the Users group). You need to find the ValidatorDefinition under the email TextField and remove it:
    <sf:TextField ID="email" runat="server" DataFieldName="Email" DisplayMode="Write" Title="<%$ Resources:Labels, Email %>" CssClass="sfregisterField sfregisterEmail" WrapperTag="li">

    After you save the widget you will be able to register a new user without need to add any email in the Registration form.

    As per assigning usernames - you can find the "userName" TextField and customize it as shown in this forum post.

    Please let me know if this was helpful.

    Best wishes,
    Veronica Milcheva
