Log in to a server (dialog)
When you connect to a memoQ server for the first time, you need to log in to it.
If you're a translator, this usually happens when you check out your first project for a new client - or when you start working with memoQ on a new computer.
When memoQ needs to connect to a memoQ server, it opens the Log in to server window.
Normally, you have a user name and a password that you can type here. But if you work inside an organization (for example, at the language department of a larger company), you may be able to use the same name and password that you use for Windows. (That is called single sign-on.)
How to get here
You usually log in to a server when you check out your first project from it.
3.In the Server URL box, type or paste the address of the server. Click Select.
If this is the first time you connect to the server from that computer, the Log in to server window appears.
If you received a project connection file in e-mail: Double-click the file in the e-mail. memoQ opens, and the Check out online project and Log in to server windows automatically appear.
The Log in to server window will open whenever you choose a new server anywhere in memoQ:
▪Open the Resource console. At the top, in the Server URL box, type or paste the address of the new server. Next to it, click Select.
▪Open a project. In Project home, choose Translation memories or Term bases or Livedocs. On the Translation Memories or Term Bases or LiveDocs ribbon, in the memoQ Server section, type or paste the address of the new server, and click the Select icon.
If you are running memoQ project manager, you can go to these places, too:
•At the top of the Dashboard (the opening screen of memoQ), type or paste the address of the new server in the box right below the Dashboard tab. Then click the Select icon.
•Open the Manage projects window. At the top, type or paste the address of the new server. Then click the Select icon.
•Start the Publish project wizard. On the first screen, in the Server URL box, type or paste the address of the new server. Then click Select.
You must also log in when you are getting a license from a server, but that will look different: If you need to use a mobile (ELM or CAL) license, and you click to connect to a new ELM or CAL server in the Activation window or in the Activation wizard, a different login dialog appears. You cannot choose from existing servers in this dialog: you always need to type or paste an address, and specify a user name and a password.
What can you do?
Only for the first time: When you log in to a memoQ server, memoQ saves your user name and password. Next time you connect to the same memoQ server, it will be automatic. You won't be stopped.
To change the user name or password you use: On the Project ribbon, click Manage logins. The Manage Logins window opens. Click the server you need to connect to. Click Forget stored login for the selected server. Click Close.
When you finish
To log on to the server, and continue: Click OK.
To return to the place you come from, and forget about the server: Click Cancel.
If the memoQ server does not allow you in, or you click Cancel: memoQ may ask for the password once again. This depends on the situation. If you do not choose a different server (or My Computer) after this, the server's address will become red in the server selector box.
To change your mind: If, for any reason, you cannot or would not log in to the server after all, make sure you connect to a different server. Or, choose My Computer in the server selector box. Otherwise, memoQ will open the Log in to server window again and again.
