Register screen

Whenever you wish to register yourself as a user of the system (in other words, create an account for yourself) you should go to this screen to enter the system. All the text boxes, except for the user name box, can be changed by you at a later date.
When you have finished entering your details, click on the enter button to enter the system.

User name

Type in a nickname or short name for yourself; this will be used to identify you in the system. It is possible that the name you choose will already be taken by a different person - in which case you should pick a new name and try again. This is not case sensitive.

Full name

Type in your full name (forename and surname).

Email address

Type in your e-mail address, which will be used to send you alerts when new items arrive.
If you do not fill in the e-mail address, you will not be able to receive alerts (messages telling you about new items relevant to you) from the system.

Choice of password

Type in a password, which you will need to remember for future logins. This will not be displayed as you type it. Instead, a * (asterisk) will be printed for each character.

The password again

Type in exactly the same password again, to confirm its spelling.

Note: Passwords are case sensitive. You must always type the password in the same case, or the system will not recognise you. For example, 'Eddie' is not the same as 'eddie' or 'EDDIE'.

Enter button

Click on this button to enter the system after you have typed in the appropriate user name and password. This will take you to the edit search screen (if you wish to go to the agent hq screen, you can click on the alert button).
