User and Password
Setting up your laboratory subscription to R18LabQMS will include the laboratory name and address and the first user added by the admin who will have a Primary Lab Manager (PLM) role; more on User Roles under Login and User Tab. When logging in, the User will be the email address.
All users added to the application will receive an email from email@example.com with a link to create their password when logging in.
Please note: if it appears the initial email was not received, check your clutter folder, trash bin, or do a search within those folders for “r18labqms”. Also, IT departments within organizations sometimes will block unknown sources, if this is the case let them know you will be receiving future emails from @r18labqms.com.
Once login credentials have been created by the PLM, click Login or http://app.r18labqms.com to access the login page.

Click the “Assessor Sign Up” tab. Once the assessor creates an account they can go back to the Login page to log in. Assessors can then select a laboratory to request access to the users Quality Manual. Only when the user of the requested laboratory grants access to the assessor can they view the Quality Manual. The user can then disable that access at any time. The Primary Lab Manager will receive an email notification of this request as well as on their Dashboard when logging in.
