Pending applications in the Approve Membership module.
The Approve Membership module allows an administrator to approve membership applications. The applicant's details are sent to a pending users table and a notification email is sent to the administrator. A list of pending applicants is displayed to the administrator, who can delete or approve as he thinks fit (see Figure 8-15). On approval, the normal email is sent to the applicant with the activation link. The following options are available:
Add a customisable message to this email (see Figure 8-16).
Send a follow up email to an applicant.
Send an email to a rejected applicant.
All emails are customizable.

The new version 3.0 of the Approve Membership module for PHP-Nuke 6.9 offers even more facilities, such as:
The option to include the activation link or not.
The option to semi-automate the approval process. With this option, the admin can pre-approve known email addresses (from student lists, club members, family and friends etc), see Figure 8-17, Figure 8-18.
If an applicant is on the pre-approved list, his application is automatically approved without the intervention of admin
If an applicant is not on the approved list, there are various configurations for dealing with the application.
The automated process is configurable from the administration panel (Chapter 7).
