First, make sure your manager has already created an account for you. Next, double check your spam folder to make sure the registration email hasn't been flagged. The email will be sent from email@example.com.
If you still can't find the registration email, you can have another one sent to you by entering your email address here. After entering your email address, you'll get one of 3 messages.
- "The email address entered is not registered with the system. Please contact your employer."
Your manager hasn't set up your account, or your account was set up with the wrong email address. You should contact your manager and have them double check.
- "Your account has already been registered. If you have forgotten your password, please click here to have it reset."
You're account has already been registered and your password has already been set. You can reset your password by entering your email address here.
