Troubleshooting and FAQ

  • It’s important that you use your primary Royal Society Te Apārangi contact email address to register. Any other email address will not be accepted.
  • Your password must be at least six characters long, contain letters and numbers, include at least one uppercase letter and at least one non-letter non-digit character (& ! $ etc). The registration screen will prompt you accordingly.
  • If at any time you forget your password, or need to reset it, click on the “Forgot your password?” link on the login page.
  • Your primary email address is always your login email address. If you need to update (change) your primary email address at any stage, login with your existing email address, then update your contact details in MyPortal. Next time you log in, use your new primary email address, with your old (existing) password.
  • Please note that your old login details (username and password) for the Society's website and database update form (from 2016 or earlier), are no longer active. You'll need to register as a new user, following the instructions above.
