Account Migration Overview

Currently .decimal staff are required to migrate your existing Legacy accounts to the new .decimal account. Once your existing accounts have been migrated your Site Manager will be able to manage your site and manage your users.

Migration Process

At a high level, the migration process for existing sites and users looks as follows:

Account Migration

  1. .decimal staff with send the new system and security requirements documents to you and your clinic (e.g.: p.d 5.4's RN-29 and RN-30)
    • Your clinic's IT department should ensure the new network requirements are satisfied
  2. .decimal staff will prepopulate for your account:
  3. .decimal staff will conduct a quick site survey to determine who, if anyone, at your site should be given Site Management permissions
  4. .decimal staff will migrate any desired existing Legacy accounts that should be converted to the new account
    • Existing Legacy accounts will have their login username changed to their email address associated with the Legacy account. Note: Users will be unable to use the Legacy login once this step has been performed.
    • During the migration step each user will receive an email notification to the email address associated with their existing Legacy account
    • The email notification will contain a link for the existing Legacy user to set their password to complete the migration

New Software Installation

  1. Legacy users will be instructed to manually uninstall existing p.d versions from their local work stations
  2. Each user at each work station will be required to login to decimal Direct and download and install decimal Launcher
    • This step should only take a few minutes once the user has already setup their new password from the previous step
  3. Users can then open the decimal Launcher application, select their site (if your organization has more than one), and launch the appropriate .decimal application
