After EMS has been installed on your desktop, a shortcut icon for the application is placed on your desktop. An option for the application is also available from your Start menu. You can double click the desktop icon to launch the EMS application, or you can select the option from your Start menu.
1. Do one of the following:
• On your desktop, double-click the EMS icon .
• Open the Windows start menu, in the Search field, enter “EMS” and then select the EMS Professional option.
If you are the first person to log in to the EMS application at your organization, a dialog box opens in which you enter the information for the login server and database that your application is accessing. (These are set up during implementation.) After you enter this information, the EMS Login window opens.
2. As the EMS Administrator, enter “admin” in both the User ID and Password fields, and then click OK. If this is the first time that your EMS application has been accessed at your organization, a Registration dialog box opens. You must enter the registration information that was provided in an email with the software; otherwise, go to Step 3.
You must enter your registration information exactly as it appears in the email. For example, if the word Street is spelled out on the registration and you enter the abbreviation St., you are denied access to the software.
To make any corrections to your registration information, contact email@example.com or 800-440-3994, ext. 863 to have a corrected registration sent to you. To open the Registration window and modify your registration, start EMS and on the menu bar, click System Administration > Settings > Registration.
3. Click OK. The application opens. The main menu is open in the application.
For security reasons, after you log in to EMS the first time using “admin” as both the username and password, at a minimum, we recommend that you change the account password. Ideally, you should create an entirely new administrator account with a new username and password. See “Configuring User Security” on page 167.
