When your account is set up in the Autosoft system, an email will be sent to the email address entered in your employee record. You will use this email to establish a password and log in to the system for the first time.
Step 1. Open the system-generated email you received with the subject "Autosoft DMS Account Created."
Step 2. Click the first link in the email to confirm your email address and begin the login process.
Step 3. A Web browser window will open to a Verify Email and Create Password page. In the Company ID field, enter your dealership's Autosoft ID, typically comprised of the first four letters of the dealership name, followed by the first two digits of the dealership address. Your dealership's system administrator should be able to provide the ID.
Step 4. In the User Name field, type the username created for you by your dealership's system administrator.
Step 5. In the New Password field, type the password you'd like to use. The password must be at least eight characters in length and contain at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one number, and one symbol. The password can't contain your name or username. Make note of your password somewhere so you're sure not to forget it and will reproduce it correctly in Step 6.
Step 6. In the Retype New Password field, type the password exactly as you did in New Password.
Step 7. Click Save New Password. The program will open to the Dashboard application.
To expedite login in the future, when you can log out of the system, you can save the login screen URL as a bookmark or favorite in your Web browser so you won't have to type the address (https://dms.autosoftdms.com) every morning when you log in. Follow these steps to do this:
Step 1. Click your name in the upper-right corner of the screen. This will open a user account menu.
Step 2. Click Logout. The program will close, and you will land on the login page. Bookmark or favorite this page in your Web browser.
Step 3. Bookmark or favorite this URL in your Web browser.
|Tip: Each Web browser has a different method for creating bookmarks; if you're not certain how to create a bookmark in your Web browser, consult the browser's Help page. When the page is bookmarked, you will merely click the bookmark to go directly to the Autosoft login page.|
Step 4. At this point, you can log in to the system again. Before clicking Log In, click to check the Remember my Username box if you want your user ID to auto-populate every time you open the page.
