You will have been generated an automatic username by the system for log in purposes based on an import file. However, you can assign your own alias to your account if you wish to make logging in easier.
To set / change your alias you should select “Manage my account” from the top right corner, it drops down from the person portrait as shown here:
Once selected you will be taken to the “Manage your account” page.
Click the “Set/Update Alias” link.
There are no restrictions to the format for your alias other than you can’t set one which has already been chosen. Once done you can login using either the system generated user name or your alias. The same password is used for both.
NOTE: Students can also set up an alias for easier login via the same method.
