News from Inscriptifact

News from Inscriptifact [and via email]
The InscriptiFact Development team has just implemented several new features for InscriptiFact that should address some of the issues users have had in the past.

A new site, enables the following capabilities:

1. New users can register themselves online. This means that those of you who would like students, or colleagues, to have access to images need only direct them to this link, where they can register, choose their own username and password, and agree to the licensing conditions that are required for use of InscriptiFact.

2. Current users can sign in using their current username and password and do the following:
o     Change their profile (email, address, institution, etc.)
o       Change their password, or be given a new password if they have forgotten their password.
o       Reset their login status if they have been locked out of InscriptiFact. In other words, if a user accidentally quits InscriptiFact incorrectly, that user can sign in at the User Portal and click on "Reset Login Status" and they will be able to get back into InscriptiFact.

3. Current users who have forgotten their password can go to the site and click on "Forgot Password" and they will be sent an email with a new password. They can then log in and change the password if they wish.

Note:  Users can also now change their passwords or generate a new password from the InscriptiFact Welcome Screen without going to the User Portal.

Other features will soon be implemented which should be helpful to users and the InscriptiFact Team will notify users as they become available.
