How to Choose and Register a Username

This article will show you the steps to choose and register your Username which is used to create your personalized web address to room locations.

Last Updated: May 2022

NOTE: the Practice name and the Username have different purposes. The Practice  name designates the overall practice and Username designates the individual User or Team Member.

NOTE: the Username is NOT the Team Member or User Member name for your actual User Room. It is used behind your User Room to create a personalised web address that will be used in the SEND INVITATION or COPY THE LINK buttons sent to your User Room via email, SMS or scheduling software.

NOTE: Usernames must be unique (i.e. you can't use an alias that is already used by another Coviu user). It must only contain letters, numbers, hyphens and underscores.
