Errors:​


If you, or your organization,​ already has Microsoft login accounts

  • Go to MyCTB.org.
  • Click on the appropriate WorkStation button. 
    • TIP: Start typing in the site name in the Quick Search and it will display the site you want.
    • After the first login you can click on either the WorkStation button or the Sign In button in the upper right.
  • Enter the email associated with your Microsoft account (e.​g., ​macgregor@countyhealth.org).
  • When you click in the password field you may be automatically redirected to your organization login page. 
    • If you are not redirected, enter your organization password
    • If you are redirected to your organization login page:​
      • Enter your organization username (may be different than your email, mine is just tsimons)
      • Enter your organization password.
  • Click the button to login.​
  • You should be redirected to MyCTB.org and have access to the same WorkStation(s) as you did before.

If you are having a problem creating a Microsoft login account

​When you create a Microsoft login account you should be able to link it to an existing email account. You should not have to create a new email. If you receive an "You can't sign up here with a work or school email address" error please see the information about that below.


If you created a new email account that you don't want to monitor​

The change to Microsoft login accounts should not have forced you to create a new email account. Some of you created an email because of the confusion between a Microsoft login account and a separate email account. ​If you do not plan to monitor that account you can set up forwarding that will redirect any email sent to that account on to your regular account.​

If you created an email account that wasn't needed

Unfortunately, there was some confusion about the need to create a new email account. All we were asking is for you to link your existing email account to a Microsoft login. If you didn't see an error when you entered your email address at signup.live.com, then please run through these instructions again. ​We don't want you to have an email account that you don't want and won't monitor. 
  1. Go back to https://signup.live.com.
  2. Enter your email address.
  3. Enter the password you want to use.
  4. Click Next.
  5. If that works, follow the rest of the prompts until your Microsoft account is created. See step-by-step instructions.​

If you created an email account because you received an error. 

If you received the "can't sign up with a work or school email address,"​ please follow the instructions under "If your organization already has Microsoft login accounts" above. If you are still unable to login, you may have to create a new email account. If you need to do that, please​ then follow these instructions for forwarding mail from that new account to your current email account.​

Please Note: ​Any email that goes out from our system will be sent to the email address you are using to login. That includes any alerts you may have set, and the occasional emails that we send out to all users.

Errors


You can't sign up here with a work or school email address​

It says you "can't sign up with a work or school email address," but it doesn't tell you why. It's usually because you already have a Microsoft login(for example, if you have access to Microsoft Office 365, you have a Microsoft login). Please follow the instructions under "If your organization already has Microsoft login accounts" above. 

If you get this error and don't have access to Office 365, you will need to link the Microsoft login to another existing account, or create a new one. If you have to create a new account, and don't want to monitor it, please review the instructions for forwarding from that email address to your work email.






Account not registered with target site collection​

This error indicates that the email you are using is not in our system. There are several reasons why this may happen:

You have access to Office 365 through your organization and your Office 365 login is different than your email address

Please email a request to update your email to toolbox@ku.edu. Please include your old and new email, and the site you normally access.

You have changed your email 

If you changed your email, and that change was not associated with setting up a new Microsoft login account, please email a request to update your email to toolbox@ku.edu. Please include your old and new email, and the site you normally access.

If you created a new email when you setup your Microsoft account (and don't want that email account), please take a minute to go through these instructions. Most of you should not need to create a new account. Unfortunately, there was some confusion about that step. ​We don't want you to have an email account that you don't want to monitor. 

​​You need to clear browser cache

​​To check to see if this is the problem, try signing on with another browser. If you can login there, then you need to clear the cache for your preferred browser.

Your permissions are not set correctly

​If the other options do not fix the problem for you, please contact us at toolbox@ku.edu or 785-864-0533. We will review your current permissions and reset them for you.​

If none of these options clear the error

This pages shows what email address you are using to access the WorkStation. If that doesn't match the email address in our system, please send an email to toolbox@ku.edu and attach the screenshot. If you add "Email address updated needed" on the email we will be able to process your request faster. We will change your email in our system to match the one shown on the Main Claims page. After that update is made, you will use​ email to access your WorkStation.
