If you cannot access your account

If you cannot access your account due to forgotten password, please follow these steps:

  • Go to this link, where you will be asked to type in your existing e-mail address, and reset your password. The email address you provide should be the one linked to your Plecto account.
  • After doing this, you will receive an email with a link to the page from where you can reset your password.
  • When this is done, you have to log into app.plecto.com. Then you should follow the steps described above.

If you signed up with the wrong email address

Please contact your Plecto account administrator, if you are not able to access your account because you signed up with a wrong email address.

There are 2 parts to this. 

1.

  • The administrator should locate the employee's profile under the menu Employees and follow the steps below: The first part requires an admin user to locate the employee in their employee overview:
  • When the employee is located in the overview, you have to click the "Actions"-button all the way over to the right of the employee's name.
  • Click on edit and you will be redirected to the employee editing page.
  • Scroll down the page until you see the "Access"-section of the editing page.

2. Reset your password and login with your new email address

  • After you have been invited to Plecto once again, you will receive an email with login credentials - both showing the new e-mail address and a password.
  • Login to Plecto with the login credentials and change your password by going to account settings.
