This topic is only relevant to accountants to help them manage their clients’ databases.
There are other articles to explain in detail how to manage and access your’s and your clients’ Prelude databases. This article simply presents a suggestion for how to provide your clients with the login details for their database.
They will need their login page (the same one that you use), their database name, their username and their password.
Probably the easiest and best way to provide these details is to send them in an email to your client. We recommend that you set the change password option (explained in User Management), so that the password you send will be redundant thereafter(for security). Something like this conveys the message. Copy this into the body of a new email, replace with the specific details as required and add your preferred salutation etc.:
