This document illustrates how you can set up an account on our site for free.
Elodie Valdora* is a freelance graphic designer. She has heard about profil4.com from a friend and wants to set up an account (i.e. register) for free on our site. The process is relatively straightforward.
(*) names, companies and dates are fictitious and used by way of illustration only.
To start with, Elodie must click on the new account link (above right).
She will be taken to a page which will request a few details:
- Her first name;
- Her last name;
- Her e-mail address;
- Her e-mail address again in case of error;
- Her gender, male or female;
- Her country;
- Her year of her birth;
- Her job;
- Her company;
- If she wants to sign up for our newsletter.
She will also have to check the box next to "captcha", allowing us to check that she’s a real person, and accept our general conditions of use.
After clicking on the "registration" button, Elodie will be taken to a page which confirms her account has been set up and that her password has been sent to her by e-mail.
Elodie thus receives a welcome e-mail which tells her what her password is. She can copy it or click directly on the "log in" button within the message.
To log in, Elodie must click on the connection link (top right). She will be sent to a page which asks for her e-mail (which serves as her log-in) and the password she has received by e-mail.
Once she has logged in, Elodie can see her name on screen. The log in and new account links will have been replaced by a log out link (top right).
For security reasons, it’s important for Elodie to choose a new password immediately. To do so, she can use the "Change my password" menu.
Elodie must indicate:
- Her old password, for verification;
- Her new password;
- Her new password again in case of error.
The new password must contain at least 8 characters. We recommend including both upper and lower case letters as well as numbers.
A page confirms that the change of password has been taken into account.
