If you don't find the answer to your question(s) under any of the
Help categories listed below, please contact us. We would be glad to assist you with any questions that you might have.
I am trying to register for an account, but when I do, I receive an error message that says "Username Exists" and I cannot go any further. How do I complete the registration process?
This error message means that another user has already registered using the username you are trying to create. We suggest creating a more unique username. For example, if John Doe wants to register as a new user, do not enter in a username of John or jdoe; use something that is more unique like jdoe385.
I am trying to register for an account, but when I do, I receive an error message that says "Email Exists" and I cannot go any further. How do I complete the registration process?
This error message means that another user has already registered using this same email address. If this was you, please use the "Password Reset" function on the login page and your login credentials will be reset and emailed to you. Note: If you have registered on MaxKnowledge or any of the other partner sites, you do not need to register again. Please use the same login credentials.
My password was reset, and now I want to update it to personalize it. How do I do that?
Once logged in, click on your profile in the upper right corner, and then click on "Account Settings." Enter the new password you would like to create under "Password" and then again under "Confirm Password," and then click on "Update" to save. The next time you login, use the new password that you selected.
I am trying to reset my password but when I tried to retrieve it, the system said "No such email address exists." What should I do?
If you receive this message, it means that the system is unable to reset your password because the email address you entered is not in our system. Check that you have entered your email address correctly (i.e. there are no typographical errors). If you still receive this error message, this email address has not been used to register a profile in our system.
Can I send in a check to purchase a subscription key?
The purchase of a subscription is available only through a credit card transaction.
I purchased a subscription key. How do I access it?
Your purchased key will appear in your Key Panel. (The email address you used in the purchase transaction must match the email address in your profile.) You can access your Key Panel once logged in by clicking on your profile, and then using the dropdown to select "Key Panel." You can use your Key Panel to view all records pertaining to your subscription including your users' activities and course certificates.
How do I share my subscription key with my team?
Simply share the subscription key that you see in your Key Panel with your team members, and they will enter it when prompted to "Enter Key" to access a course. Each user must create their own profile and login to the site to use the key.
Can I replace a user who has left our company with another user?
If the user has not yet enrolled in any course, you are good to go. Simply share your subscription key with the new user. If the user has already enrolled in a course, you will need to increase the user limit on your subscription key. You can make this purchase via your Key Panel.
How do I increase the user limit on my subscription key?
To increase the user limit on your subscription key, go to your Key Panel and simply click on "Raise User Limit," enter the number of users you wish to add to the key and click "Submit." The total charge displayed on the screen will depend on whether your subscription was purchased using the monthly billing option (in which case you will see the charge that will be additionally applied each month) or the annual option (in which case you will see the charge that will be additionally applied for the year).
How can I cancel my subscription?
You'll see a "Cancel Subscription" button in your Key Panel one month prior to your annual renewal date. Since our subscription requires an annual commitment, this applies to both our monthly and annual payment options.
