Troubleshooting Guide

Posted on

Software is not always our friend. If you have having issues, we hope these quick solutions will help. If the problem you are having isn’t listed below please contact us at info@uuinstitute.org or submit a support ticket and we’ll work with you to figure it out.

I did not get my confirmation email after registering, so I cannot log into the site.

Occasionally these emails get caught in spam folders on your server or in your inbox. If you can’t find the email then please email info@uuinstitute.org and one of us will confirm your account right away. We do check for “stuck” accounts regularly but if you email us we’ll take care of it right away.

I am trying to log in but it doesn’t recognize my user name.

The system does not recognize spaces in the user names. If you put in “Beth Casebolt” it will turn that into “BethCasebolt”. So try removing the space between your names or two words first. The system does this automatically, it does not tell you it is happening. Also, if you can’t remember your user name, you can always login using your email address associated with the account. If these two fixes don’t help please email info@uuinstitute.org and one of us will check your account and tell you your user name. Note that we cannot see passwords. Do note that while you can change your email address associated with the account, you cannot change the user name once it is set.

I’ve lost my password, how do I reset it?

Select My Account from the Participants Menu. There you will see a forgot password link under the login box. Click that link and you should be able to reset your password. If you do not get the reset password email or are unable to find the link, email info@uuinstitute.org for help. We can’t see your password, so all we can do is reset it.

When one video presentation ends, another one — that isn’t part of the class–starts to play.

YouTube has added an “autoplay” feature that causes this problem.  Find out how to turn it off.

I tried to take the quiz but when I get to the end it just spins and doesn’t give me a score. When I log out and back in it says I didn’t take it.

    Hi Marlana, I’m sorry about the trouble! The videos are in a YouTube playlist if you click on the embedded video itself. You can also click on the individual links above the embedded video. Be sure to click on the “mark complete” button at the bottom of the page once you’ve been through all of the material. 🙂
