Create Accounts

You have your account...but what about everyone else?

No worries! There's no limit to the number of accounts in your system.

Our FAQ will walk you through adding accounts.

 

Initial Site Admin: You're a Super-User!

Did you know? The password in your site's inital "Welcome" email (to your original/main system administrator) is your super-user password! Go ahead and change it to something you can remember, but hold on to the original password.

As an admin, there may be times you need to change something where you have to be logged in as another user. Use their email address and this super-user password to log in as them and help them upload pictures to their profile, change their account login information or name, etc.

Now you know! :)

 

Transfer Guides from the Demo Site (Optional)

If you created guides in the demo site, you can easily transfer them into your new system!

Just use the "Use an existing guide as a template" option when creating a new guide.

Our FAQ will walk you through copying guides in from other systems.

Once you have copied your guides over to your new site, please remember to delete the originals in the demo site to help us keep that site clean and running properly for the rest of our user community. Thanks!
