Unlocking Your Account
Your CentreSuite user ID and Password are case sensitive, and may contain upper and lower case letters, as well as numbers. Inputting either incorrectly will result in denial of access to CentreSuite.
If you enter your ID or your password incorrectly, you will see an error message in red text that reads:
Error in logon process Invalid logon credentials
IMPORTANT: TO AVOID LOGIN PROBLEMS, PLEASE DO NOT COPY AND PASTE YOUR PASSWORD INTO THE CENTRESUITE PASSWORD FIELD AT LOGIN.
You may attempt to access the system again by re-entering your user ID and password and clicking the “Log On” button.
If you enter your user ID correctly but enter your password incorrectly three times in succession your user ID will be locked and you will see an error message that reads:
Error in logon process: This account is locked
