#7: Resetting a Password

Have you lost or forgotten your password? You can set up a new one, just remember to be logged out when you use our reset link to get back in to create it:

  1. If you are logged in to the Commons, then click the silhouette drop down and then 'log out.'  Go to the Sign In page and click the “Request New Password” link in the right sidebar of the Login page. 
  2. You'll receive an emailed link that logs you in.  Make sure you are logged out before you click that link.
  3. If the system asks for your current password, then you were not logged out in the steps above.  Follow this guide to help you reset your password.
