Getting the Sign-In Code Email

When a contact signs in, they will be sent the following email with a sign-in code:

They will need to cut and paste the above code before getting access to the portal. The above sign-in code is not a password that needs to be saved for later logins. 

If they need to sign in at a later date, or are in a different browser, they will be sent an email again with a different sign-in code.
