  • Updates to BSD Tools and CallOut Log-In System

    Due to the blizzard affecting the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regions of the US, we have rescheduled this work for next week.

    Beginning at 11:00 PM ET on March 21, 2017 and ending before 4:00 AM ET on March 22, 2017 the BSD Tools team will be rolling out improvements to the authentication system for your organization’s user accounts. This is the first phase of a broader project that will soon bring easier-to-use but more robust account management functionality to the BSD Tools, while improving the security of your account.

    While the phase one deployment is underway, your instance of the BSD Tools will function normally, but you will not be able to update email addresses or passwords associated with existing user accounts. You will be able to edit permissions and deactivate users. Once the work is complete, all existing usernames and passwords will remain the same, but you will need to log in again.

    Additionally, you'll also notice some updates to the log-in, password reset, and user creation experiences -- these are the first of many that we will be releasing soon.

    If there are any questions about this work or about your user account going forward, please reach out to us at help@bluestatedigital.com.
