If you have problems logging in to www.plaitapp.org/login (or the preview release at next.plaitapp.org/login)  it is generally down to one of:

  1. You are entering your username incorrectly.  

    Plait is unusual in that case sensitivity is significant in the username (even though the username is very often an email, and emails are case insensitive). Make sure you are entering the username in the correct case.

  2. You are using the wrong username.

    To find out what your username is, click on the Forgotten password? link on the login page. Enter your email. If the system recognises the email you will be sent a link in an email. Click on that link and the form contains your username. If the system does not recognise the email you should get a colleague to tell you what email address the system has for you (or to change it).

  3. You are entering your password incorrectly.

    Password is case sensitive, as it is in most systems - check your Caps Lock.

  4. You have forgotten your password

    If you can't remember your password then click on the Forgotten password? link on the login page. Enter your email. If the system recognises the email you will be sent a link in an email. Click on that link and change your password. If the system does not recognise the email you should get a colleague to tell you what email address the system has for you (or to change it).

    Then get yourself a password manager (or use the one built into your browser).
