Log In and Log Out

Use your username and password to log in to the application.

Tip: If this is your first time logging in to EMResource, use the To log in for the first time procedure.

If your administrator resets your password, they will need to provide you with the temporary password. In this case, logging in is similar to logging in for the first time.

If you forget your password, EMResource allows you to reset your own password, but only if you have set up a security question and answer in your profile. This provides a more secure means of verifying your identity. When you log in to EMResource, if you have not already set this up, the system automatically prompts you to do so.

You can bypass this by clicking Cancel. However, every time you log in you will be prompted to perform this task until you have completed it. You can set up or change your question and answer from Preferences.

In addition, when you log in if your password is due to expire within 14 days, the Set Up Your Password page opens. You can change it immediately or click Cancel to proceed to EMResource.
