  1. Shared Class Account

  • You have been setup with a shared account for the class by your instructor.
  • Use a supported browser (IE or Safari). 
  • Append decisions and objects you make or upload with your initials. All students in the section are in the same database. Renaming will make it easier to find your work. You can also use a tag in the description.
  • Close tabs in a reasonable manner as you work.  This is a shared class database and a very large number of open tabs can cause issues.
  • Ignore any reference the Admin panel and the API key in the tutorial, this is for the lead user (your instructor or TA). An API Key has been generated for you.
