Contextual Help - Login Page

The Login Page is where you open a session in AceProject. For security purposes, each user must provide the company login name,  his/her username and password.

This
window has 3 parts: The buttons on top, the connection information fields and the buttons on the bottom.

  • The buttons on top are the following:
    • The Help button brings you to AceProject's support system. This section offers help-related documents you can use to learn more about specific AceProject features.
    • The Français link lets you change the language used in the interface for French.
  • The connection information fields must be filled by each user who wishes to access your AceProject account.
    • The Company Login Name field is the company's account name. (Ex. Company Name = EBM Corporation / Company Login Name = ebmcorp). The system uses cookies to record your Company Login Name.
    • The Username is the name each user has been given in your account. (Ex. User = John Smith / Username = jsmith). The system uses cookies to record your Username.
    • The Password is linked with the username.
      • You can check the "Remember Password" box if you do not want to enter your password everytime you login.
      • Passwords are encrypted with the "md5" crytographic algorhitm. Thus, passwords are case sensitive and are visible neither by us nor by your account's administrators. This puts the level of security of your data at a very high level. If your forgot your password, you will have to use the "Forgot Password?" link to enter a new one, since it cannot be retreived.
  • The buttons on the bottom are the following:
    • The Demo button lets you view AceProject's live demo, which is a dummy account. This option is useful is your wish to perform tests outside of your actual account.
    • The Secure Connection or Non-Secure Connection button lets you choose whether you want your information to be protected with SSL 128-bit encryption or not.
      • Secure connection is safer while non-secure connection is faster. If you feel that the level of sensitivity of the information you transfer with AceProject is not high, we suggest you use the non-secure connection, for better performance.
    • The Forgot Password? link lets you recover your password if you have forgotten it. After clicking this link, you will be asked to provide your email address. Then, an email will be sent to you. It will include all the required information to complete the next step, in order to enter a new password.
