Managing your own user account


Having registered from a Patchworks account - or having been added to a company profile as a user - a user account is created for you. If required, you can access your account settings and:

Accessing your account settings

To access your account settings, click your login name in the top, right-hand corner of the dashboard, then select the account settings option:

Changing your account name or email address

Step 1 Access your account settings page.

Step 2 Update information in the general panel as needed:

Remember that the email address specified here is used to log into the Patchworks dashboard.

Step 3 Click the save button.

Enabling/disabling two-factor authentication

If you want to enable/disable two-factor authentication for your account, move down to the extra panel and select the multi-factor authentication tab:

For more information please see our two-factor authentication (2FA) page.

Changing your password

Step 1 Click your login name in the top, right-hand corner of the dashboard, then select the change password option:

Step 2 Complete the change password form by entering your existing password, followed by the new password required and confirmation of this:

When setting your password, the following rules apply:

  • A minimum length of 8 characters

  • At least 1 lowercase letter (a - z)

  • At least 1 uppercase letter (A - Z)

  • At least 1 number (0 - 9)

  • At least 1 special character (!, $, #, or %)

Step 3 Click the submit button to save changes.

You may notice that there's a reset password option at the top of your account settings page. This option triggers a password reset email which includes a link to the password reset form shown above - so you achieve the same thing but with an extra step.
