Step 1: Locate User Activation Email
Once you are added to the system by a site administrator, the site will send you an automated user activation email. Search your email box for an email with the following:
- Subject line: Kiwanis Sites
- Sender name: Kiwanis Sites
- Sender email: [email protected]
Step 2: Open User Activation Email
Now that you’ve located the email, open it and click the activation link to activate your account. If you cannot find the user activation email, check your SPAM folder and then contact your site administrator if you still cannot find the email.
Step 3: Copy & Save Username & Password
Once you click the user activation link in step 2, you will be sent to a activation confirmation page. The system will generate a secure password for you, which will be displayed on the confirmation page, along with your username. Please copy and paste your username and password and store them on your computer someplace safe.
Step 4: Go to Login Page
After you’ve copied and saved your username and password to a safe place on your computer, click the Log in link.
Step 5: Log Into Site
After you’ve clicked the Log in link, enter your username and password into the login box. and click the Log In button
Tip: You can also use the email address that you gave to your site administrator as the username when logging in.
Tip: If your password does not work, click the “Lost your password?” link to reset your password. The site will send you an email to reset your password.
Step 6: View Your Site Dashboard
After you’ve clicked the Log In button, you will be taken to your site dashboard.
