Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why do I have to enter a verification code when I login?

A: The verification code is a security measure that will only display after 3

incorrect login attempts. Once you login with the correct credentials it will no longer display. If it does continue to display after a successful login make sure that Cookies are enabled in your browser settings.

Q: I have a student or employer that cannot login! What should I do?

A: There are few common reasons why this may be happening and here are some things to troubleshoot:

1. Make sure that the user is going to the correct login page and that they are not trying to login as an employer through the student login page or vice versa.
2. If you have confirmed that they are going to the correct page it may be that they are trying to use the wrong username or password. Verify this and also recommend that they use the Forgot Password function on the login page.
3. Check to see if they have a password by viewing their Number of Logins in administrative info. If it says “N/A” it means that they do not have a password assigned to them. To assign either set in the Account tab or send them the Welcome Message to generate them a new password.

Q: The forgot password feature is not working for an employers or student?

A: The forgot password function is the easiest way for users to receive a new password. If they report that it is not working it is usually one of three reasons:

1. They have never been assigned a password. Check their number of logins and if it says “N/A” they have to be assigned a password from an administrator before they can login.
2. Make sure that the Forgot Password system message is enabled.
3. Have the user check their SPAM folder.

Q: How do I get my manager account password?

A: For security reasons there is not a forgot password feature available for administrators. Your password can be reset by another administrator or contact us for a new password if you are unable to login.

Q: Why isn’t my search bringing back any results?

A: Try selecting the “Clear” button and then try your search again. When performing multiple searches it is common to have previous filters set which can inadvertently limit the results.

Q: Why do I have duplicate results in my report?

A: If you are including a field that accepts multiple values you can select “Collapse Values into Single Row” to combine selections into one row.

Q: When using the student tracking system, can I hook up multiple card readers to one computer?

A: Sure. You can have multiple card readers on one computer to quickly process student attendance.

Q: What happens if I reject a OneStop posting? Is it rejected everywhere? Does the employer get a refund?

A: If you reject a OneStop posting the job will only be rejected at your school, it can still be posted at the other selected schools. After it is rejected if the number of remaining schools puts the employer in a lower price bracket we send them a refund.

Q: Does OneStop require employers to bypass our school's CSM system?

A: It does not. OneStop actually features a Springboard so your approved employer contacts may jump into your system a click, and they appreciate not having to remember passwords. Furthermore, from the OneStop interface, employer contacts may access your school's customized forms, which feature your logo, just like they would if they were logged in directly.
