If you would like access to sites within CTools, follow the steps below.
1. If you do not have a UM uniqname, register for a Friend account with the University of Michigan by opening http://weblogin.umich.edu/friend, and following the onscreen instructions. You will need to supply your email address and choose a password. You will receive a confirmation email to that address. Open that email and confirm your account registration by following the instruction contained there.
2. Next, contact the person who has invited you to join a CTools site and give them your friend account login (the email address from step 1). The owner of this site can then add you as a participant.
3. Once you've been added to the site, open CTools at http://ctools.umich.edu. Login and you can begin. You will see a tab next to 'My Workspace' for the site that you have now joined. If you received a message that your login was invalid, please confirm that you have typed it in correctly and that the site owner has added you as a participant.
