New features in April, 2018:
- Date/time format picker in Regional Details.
Each Emarsys user can edit their own profile on their My Profile page. This is accessible via the drop-down menu in the upper left corner.
Here you can change your login user name, change your password, and enable two-step login authentication via smartphone app.
Changing your password
To maintain the security of your user profile, Emarsys will ask you to change your password every 180 days. You cannot reuse a password that you have previously used.
You can also do this at any time by clicking Change Password. This will send an email to the email address associated with your user, containing a link that will direct you to the reset password page.
Emarsys will evaluate your password and, if it passes the security criteria, will reset it for you.
Configuring an Authenticator App
Two-step authentication (IP access control) is enabled by the Account Owner and is automatically active for all users who have a verified mobile phone number (see below). However, most smartphones also have authenticator apps which will provide time-based authentication codes.
An authenticator app is the preferred method as it is offline (no Internet connection required) and works without delay or delivery issues.
Click Configure Authenticator App to open a wizard which will lead you through the instructions for all major operating systems.
Once installed on your phone, just scan the QR code and enter the code it generates.
Once enabled, Emarsys will accept the codes generated by your authenticator app when you log in. Please be aware that codes are highly time-sensitive (valid for ~1 minute). If you enter a code but submit it late, it may be rejected. In this case, enter a fresh code and submit again.
This authentication method also gives you the chance ask Emarsys to Remember your device. This will allow you to log in for 14 days from that device using only your user name and password, regardless of the IP address.
Changing your password will invalidate all your trusted devices.
See User Security at Emarsys for more details on two-step authentication.
Here you can change your interface language, the default language of the fields used in forms and emails, your timezone, preferred date and time format, and the unit of distance (for use in Geolocation segments, for example).
- The date/time format is purely a display issue - it will not affect the way date fields are handled, either on import or on export.
- There may still be some screens in Emarsys which do not recognize the format you choose here. Our development team is busy identifying and fixing these issues.
Here you can change your first name and last name (if your Account Owner did not enter them for you).
For security reasons, your access role and email address can only be changed by your Account Owner.
You should also verify your mobile phone number. This requires nothing more than entering the number and clicking Verify mobile number. You will then be asked to enter the code that Emarsys sends you via SMS.
Your mobile phone number will only be used for two-step authentication, if this is enabled by your Account Owner.
