SHORT INSTRUCTIONS

Follow these few easy steps to enter one to four email addresses to receive notice of deaths in the parish or other important information from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church.

The system indicates success or failure just above the form.

Add a record

Enter whatever name and password you wish to use and click FIND. Enter your address(es) and click ADD. You are done.

Change a record

Enter your name and password and click FIND. Change your address(es), click UPDATE. You are done.

Delete a record

Enter your name and password and click FIND. Click DELETE. You are done.

Change your password

Enter your name and password and click FIND. Click DELETE. Enter the new password. Click ADD. You are done.

Reset your password

Enter your name and click RESET PASSWORD. The new random password has been emailed to your primary email address. You are done.



LONG INSTRUCTIONS

This form allows you to register up to four email addresses with OLPH, so that you can receive immediate and timely notification of urgent messages from OLPH, such as the death of parishioner.

When you first register, you need to select a name and a password. There are no restrictions on the contents of either, except that the password must be at least 6 printable characters in length, and should contain one or more special characters (mostly found on the 'number' row of your keyboard). Whilst you may choose any name at all, it would be best if you use your given name.

First time entry

  1. The first step is to enter the name and password you have selected and click the FIND button. If the system responds with 'Record NOT found' and displays just the FIND and ADD buttons, your selected name and password are unique and you may proceed to step 3 to enter your email address(es).
  2. If you have somehow selected a name and password combination that someone else is using (highly unlikely), you will need to select a different name or password (or both) and return to step 1. Remember: it is the combination of name and password that makes your entry unique in the database.
  3. At this point, the system has responded with 'Record NOT found' and has displayed a small form with the FIND and ADD buttons. You must supply a primary email address. You may, optionally, supply up to three more addresses, if you wish to receive notifications in multiple mail boxes. When you have entered your desired email addresses, click the ADD button; the system should respond with 'Record added'; the data in the form will remain the same.
  4. At this point, your data now resides in the database. You should write down the name and email addresses you selected, or simply print the page. Remember that it is never a good idea to write down your password; however, sometimes you have to.

Updating your addresses

  1. The first step is to enter your name and password and click the FIND button. If the system responds with 'Record NOT found' and displays just the FIND and ADD buttons, you likely mistyped your name and/or password. If you have entered your name and password correctly, the system will respond with 'Record found' and display your addresses.
  2. Make any changes you wish to your addresses, then click the CHANGE button. If the system responds with 'Record changed', you will have successfully updated your addresses and you are done. If the system responds with 'Record NOT changed', you may have inadvertently changed your name and/or password; in this case, correct your name and password and repeat step 2.

Deleting your data

  1. The first step is to enter your name and password and click the FIND button. If the system responds with 'Record NOT found' and displays just the FIND and ADD buttons, you likely mistyped your name and/or password. If you have entered your name and password correctly, the system will respond with 'Record found' and display your addresses.
  2. Now click the DELETE button. The system should respond with 'Record deleted'. You have now deleted your record in the database and are done.

Handling OOPSes

Inadvertent Deletions

If you inadvertently delete your record, simply click the ADD button to put it back in.

Inadvertent Changes

If you inadvertently change your addresses, you will need to manually make the changes to restore the addresses - there is no UNDO button.

Inadvertent Additions

If you have inadvertently added a record, simply click the DELETE button to remove it from the system.

Important notes:

  • The password you select must be at least 6 printable characters. You should use at least one special character (found on the 'number' row).
  • Once you add, change or delete data, it is permanent; the action cannot be undone.
  • It is higly improbable that you will select a name and password that matches an existing entry in the daabase.
