The 3 step signup process frontend view and walk-through

Step 1.: User will add his Email address then click Request Magic Link.

Successfully message will appear or he's redirected to a Page of your choosing.

Step 2.: If the User is new he gets an account creation confirmation email.

The email contains: 

1.: the URL of the Platform he signed up for
2.: the email he used during signup
3.: an automatically generated Password
4: a one click access link.

If the User already had an account on your platform he will get an express login link.

Step 3: Clicking the Click here link will automatically log the User into the Platform and redirect him wherever you've chosen to redirect him.

In this case we did redirect the user to his Learner Profile.
