Getting started with Joining Tehama
This guide provides the basic steps necessary in order for you to join Tehama.
NOTE: Tehama at this time is by invitation only. If you are interested in ordering Tehama, reach out to us through the Contact Us page.
You've likely received an invitation through email, sent to the email address you provided for your order/purchase of Tehama.
- From: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Subject: Welcome to Tehama
The invitation will be either:
Both start off with similar steps, then diverge into different scenarios for the next steps.
The invitation email will contain a link which will need to be actioned in order to set up Tehama. Locate the invite email and click the 'Accept invitation' link.
If you have been invited to connect to a room, the link will be 'Launch Room'. Clicking on this link will bring you to a page displaying the Join room in TEHAMA dialog. This will present you with two options:
- "I already have an account", followed by a LOG IN button; or
- "I need to create an account", followed by a JOIN TEHAMA button. Clicking on the JOIN TEHAMA button brings you to the same account-creation page as the 'Accept invitation' link from the other invite emails.
Account Creation/Initial Log In
Having clicked on the link in the invite email, you will be presented with a page displaying the JOIN TEHAMA dialog asking you to create a new Tehama User Account (*)(**)(***).
Please fill in the following fields:
|Name||First and Last Name (auto-populated) (this will be the full name of your personal User account)|
|Email Address (auto-populated) (this will be your Tehama username, used to login)|
|Password||Your desired password|
|Confirm Password||Confirm desired password|
Take some time to browse the terms of a Tehama Account by clicking on terms.
Click on Register. A dialog to set up Google Authenticator will appear.
*You may also choose to forgo creating a Tehama Account and sign up using a valid Google account. If so:
- Click the Sign up with Google button
- Enter your Google Account credentials
- Press Sign in.
A dialog to set up Google Authenticator will appear.
**You may already have a Tehama Account and merely wish to create a new organization. If so, click the Already have an account link, log into the LOG IN dialog that appears, then proceed to 'Organization Registration' section in this document.
***After setup is complete, you may opt to enable Single Sign On (SSO) for your organization, if your plan supports this option. You can find more information on this in the Authentication User Guide.
Google Authenticator Setup
The dialog to set up Google Authenticator will prompt you to set up 2FA authentication on a secondary device (e.g.: tablet or phone). You can find more information on this in the Authentication User Guide.
A LOG IN dialog will appear. You will be prompted to login with either your Tehama Account username and password or your Google Account username and password, depending on which you used above.
You will then be prompted to access the 6-digit Authentication Code in the Google Authenticator app on your secondary device and enter it in the LOG IN dialog.
If you were invited to join as a team member skip this step and proceed to Profile Page Completion.
If you are still here, you were invited to join to create an organization, or to connect to a room, requiring you to create an organization.
Upon a successful login, you will be directed to your Organization plan page, cheerily entitled 'Welcome to TEHAMA'.
This page shows your support plan. Click CONTINUE to confirm that you have agreed to subscribe to this plan. (This plan can be changed at any time.)
You should have been directed to your Organization profile page. If you were not, then open the User menu at the top right and select Organization.
Complete all required fields and correct any mistakes the inviter may have made in your Organization's contact details.
Fields to complete:
- Organization name (Auto-populated)
- ZIP/Postal Code
- Phone Number
Press Complete Registration.
Profile Page Completion
You should then be directed to your Tehama User Personal Profile page where you can enter profile details. If you are not, then open the User menu at the top right and select Settings and then the sidebar item PROFILE.
This is what other organizations will see about you when deciding to grant you access to Rooms so we generally encourage you to fill this out completely.
Fields to complete:
- Name (full name) (Auto-populated)
- Email (Auto-populated)
- ZIP/Postal Code
- Country of Citizenship
This is a good time to configure your organization's payment method. A payment method must be configured before you can create a room.
Navigate to your organization's Payment Method page. Open the User menu at the top right, select Organization and then the sidebar item PAYMENT METHOD.
At this point you are ready to take your next steps in the Tehama Installation Guide.
