HOW TO REGISTER AS A NEW USER


TUTORIAL TRANSCRIPT 1

Welcome to ABS User Registration. Tutorial 1 will provide you with instructions on how to register as a new user.

To do this, go to the ABS home page, click Services and then click on the Registration Centre link within the I need information and services for...section.

When you arrive at the Registration Centre home page, click Register on the left navigation panel. You will then be sent an account activation email. (This process will be covered in Tutorial 2.)

This will take you to the online registration form. Fields marked with an asterisk must be completed.

First provide your email address and confirm it. Then provide a password that meets the required criteria and confirm it.

Your password must be a minimum of seven characters and must contain three of the following four items:
  • a number
  • a lower case letter
  • an upper case letter
  • a special character. (The following characters are allowed: exclamation and question marks, 'at' and percent symbols as well as the dollar sign and hash.)

Continue to fill in the form with your various details. Please provide at least one phone number. Now select a secret question and provide an answer.

When you have correctly filled in all the required fields, click Submit. You will then be sent an account activation email. (This process will be covered in Tutorial 2.)

Once you have activated your account, you can apply for individual products immediately or join an organisation to apply for access to products under an organisation licence. (Find more about applying for individual and organisation licences in Tutorials 4 and 5.)

If the email address you provided was incorrect, you can re-register. If you have any questions, please phone the ABS National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.

Tutorial 1 is now complete.


ACCOUNT ACTIVATION


TUTORIAL TRANSCRIPT 2

Welcome to ABS User Registration. Tutorial 2 will provide you with instructions on how to activate your account.

After registering (covered in Tutorial 1), you will receive an account activation email. To complete the process, simply click the My account link and then log in with your newly allocated user ID and the password you created during registration.

At this point, you will need to indicate whether you are registering as an individual or organisation user. For this example, we will register as an individual, with information regarding organisation registration to be covered in subsequent tutorials.

After clicking Submit., you can now add one or more products to your account.

To illustrate, let’s choose the paid product called TableBuilder Pro 2011, as well as the free DataPacks Online 2011. Click next.

If you select a paid product, you must provide the details of a payment officer, with this person being responsible for the payment of the product.

The payment officer can be the person applying for the licence, another user or not a user at all. If you are the person paying for the product you can use your details. Click next.

Once you have read the Terms & Conditions, check the acceptance box and click Next.

Verify that everything is correct before clicking Submit.

You will now be directed to your account summary page which lists your pending and approved products.

If the product you selected is free of charge, it will appear under the approved products list and you can start using it immediately.

If the product is charged, it will be under the pending list and you won't be able to access it until your request has been approved.

To access your products, simply return to the Registration Centre home page via the link at the bottom of the page. The various product log-in buttons are located to the right.
