4.1 Getting started
To Sign up to CHRODIS platform for the first time only you have to carry the following steps:
Step 1: Creating your account
To create a personal account you have to click on “CREATE ACCOUNT” (see the screenshot below)
On this screen (see the screenshot below), users have to fill in all the fields (middle name is optional). You also have to introduce the code for the CAPTCHA to verify you are not a bot. Please, observe the CAPTCHA has several options in case you have some reading difficulties. Once filled, users can then click on the ‘SAVE’ button to continue.
Should any field contain a wrong value, a warning will appear so that the user can locate the field and correct its content as needed.
NOTE: Bear in mind that the email address registered will be used in the future to access to the platform.
Once your registration information has been saved, a message will be display on the screen informing that two mails have been sent to your address: one with your email address verification code; and a second one containing an automatically generated temporary password.
IMPORTANT: You will need both mails to complete the registration process (see the screenshot below).
Step 2: Account confirmation page
The first mail received, the email address verification, includes a link to follow or type in your usual navigator to activate your account (if the link is not clickable, you can copy and paste it into your browser's address box which also includes your verification code.
Users are expected to validate the code activating the account. This can be done by clicking on the “activation link” contained in the first email. This will lead them to a screen with a field text ready for that validation code (see the screenshot below).
Clicking on the ‘VERIFY’ button, you will be required to provide the temporary password to sign in the CHRODIS platform for the first time.
Text of the verification mail:
Dear <name surname>,
Please verify your email address for <CHRODIS platform location> at <activation link>
Your verification code is <verification code>.
PLEASE: Be aware that if you have not received the verification mail, you should contact the help desk manager for assistance.
Step 3: New password
The first time you log in the CHRODIS platform, you will be asked for the temporary password provided in the second mail (see the screenshot below).
Text of the mail containing the temporary account password:
Dear <name surname>,
Welcome! You recently created an account at <CHRODIS platform location>. Your password is <password> Enjoy!
You will be requested to update the temporary system-provided password with a new personal one. After that, the system will ask the user to select a security question; should they lose the password, the system will confront them with that question, being necessary to answer it correctly to have a password back. Once introduced, the user can click on the ‘SAVE’ button (see the screenshot below).
