Email template for Guest Users without an ePanther ID

Hi Instructor Name,

A guest user account has now been created for Guest User First and Last Name.  

Username = GuestUserFirstName.Last Name

An email has been sent to Guest User First Name requesting the creation of a password (with Subject Line: UWM D2L New User Confirmation and From: UWM D2L no-reply).  Please let Guest User First Name know that the email has been sent and that the link to set a password is only viable for 5 days.  After that, the link will expire and a new password will need to be generated.

When enrolling Guest User First Name in your D2L course site, feel free to select a role that you deem most appropriate for your needs.  You can use this tutorial to add Guest User First Name to your course site: http://uwmltc.org/?p=876.  For more information on D2L user roles, see: http://uwmltc.org/?p=822.

Guest User First Name will access D2L through a Special Access Account Login (Non ePanther ID).  Instructions for logging in with a Special Access Account can be found here: http://uwmltc.org/?p=1020.

Should you have any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us again.

Best,
