Making and Logging in with an Account
To work in Digital Mappa, you first need a user account. If you have a Google or Github account, you can set up an account automatically linked to account’s login ID and password. Otherwise, you can create an account with a new ID and password using the “Performant Software” option.
- To open or create an account, click the “Login” drop-down menu.
- Click one of the “via Google,” “via GitHub” or “via Performant Software” buttons.
- You will then have the option to enter the ID and password information for that account, or create a DM account linked to your Google or GitHub account, or to create a new account with the Performant Software option.
- Note: if your browser is set up to automatically cache and retrieve this kind of log-in information, selecting one of these options will log you in automatically.
Note: as a beta version, DM 1.0 lacks a gatekeeping feature for accounts that are created to be approved before use; DM 2.0 will include this functionality.
