I actually think we could do a lightweight first pass at this in a
way that might save us a lot of work?
Right-side of the Desktop Accounts dialog:
Sign up for a Chandler Hub account or set up an existing one.
Account type: Chandler Hub Sharing
Description: [ Chandler Hub Sharing ]
[Test...] [Sign up] [Set up] [Cancel]
We should probably change the pulldown under the Accounts list to:
Set up new account...
Clicking 'Create New Account' would open up a browser window and take
you to the 'Sign-up' page with the username and password pre-
populated. From there, the user can continue to sign up for the
account in the browser.
I don't know that the whole workflow needs to be contained within the
Desktop. I think just giving people a foothold to create a new
account will go a long way towards drawing users through the workflow.
