The New Dashboard

(0:56) The new website has been released and is continuing to be tweaked. One change that affects Partner marinas is a new Partner Dashboard. While it looks and acts like the old Partner Page, you now access it in a different way.

(0:48) First, you will not be able to login to your Partner Dashboard unless you have created your electronic boat card. You need to set up your account now if you haven't already. The steps are listed below:

1. Go to https://activecaptain.com and click the LOGIN button. Log in with your normal ActiveCaptain account email and password. You don't have to register a new account - you already have an account. Make sure to use your ActiveCaptain admin account.

2. Select the type that best fits your business: marina, boatyard, or business. Contact me to add a Partner designation to your card. You will not be able to access your Dashboard until I have done this step.

3. Fill in the information, read and agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, and upload a profile image. I suggest your image be your logo or some other image that will indicate your business. You can always upload or change your image at a later time. Then select Create New Card.

(0:23) Once I have received your email that your account has been set up, I will turn on your Partner status and send you an email. You are now ready to access your Partner Dashboard.

(0:17) Return to https://activecaptain.com and login using the admin account. Click on the "More" tab in the upper right and a drop-down menu will appear. Select "Partner Dashboard." If you do not see this option, make sure you are logged in as the admin and that your Partner status has been turned on. You must see "Partner Marina" or "Partner Boatyard" displayed to the left of your name.

(0:05) The new Dashboard functions just like your old Partner Page. Contact me if you have any questions.

(0:02) And that's the marina minute.
