FAQ for users of it-sa 365

  • Registration

    What are the advantages of registration?

    As an unregistered / logged in user I can see a lot of information: Professional articles (under Knowledge), company profiles (under Company) and product profiles (under Products & Solutions). You can also view the descriptions of the so-called actions (keynotes, webinars, discussion groups). However, it is not possible to register/participate in an action. The following contents / functions can only be used with a registration (and logged in):
    • People (under Networking)
    • Making appointments with other users
    • Registration and participation in an action (The registration is free of charge.)


    I did not receive a confirmation-email (double opt-in) or a passwort-reset-email. What can I do?

    • Please check the email address you provided.
    • Did you check your spam folder?


    I still do not receive my confirmation- or password-reset-email.

    • If you are using an adblocker (uBlock or similar), turn it off for the registration and password reset process and run the process again.
    • Adblockers block an important component that prevents you from completing the registration process.

    The link in my confirmation email does not work.

    • The confirmation link will expire after 30 minutes.
    • Please contact after this time.
