Step 1: Complete onboarding network account steps

Overview

Onboarding your network account means the following:

  1. Set the following password recovery options:  
    • Set 3 security password recovery questions
    • Set/Confirm your personal email address
    • Set/Confirm your mobile number 
  2. Set your password
  3. Enable your account

Complete the steps below to onboard your network account

  1. Find the Onboarding email (see image below).
    1. This email should have been sent to your personal email address from your hiring manager.  
      1. It is important to note, your hiring manager is not necessarily your supervisor and your supervisor may need to reach out to your hiring manager to request the email be forwarded to you.
    2. If you don’t see this email in your main inbox, check your spam or junk folders. 
      1. The Subject line of the email should contain: Lynn University <your position> onboarding.


  2. Complete these steps to onboard your network account
    1. Follow the instructions in the onboarding email by clicking on the Lynn University Onboarding Site Link or you can open up any browser and enter https://onboarding.lynn.edu.  
    2. Please keep the onboarding email open, as you will need the information contained in it to complete the steps below. 


      Onboarding setup page



    3. Enter your ID number from the onboarding email. It is typically a number from 5 - 8 digits long. Then click ‘Next’


    4. Here you will need to enter the pincode and username provided in the onboarding email.  Then click ‘Next’
      Enter pincode and username window

    5. This page requires you to enter a personal email address and an optional US mobile phone number. This information will be stored in our automated password reset system. Then click ‘Next
      Password reset window

    6. The next two pages will look very similar and require you to select security questions and provide answers. This information will be stored in our self-service reset password management system (SSRPM) should you need to reset your password in the future. Click ‘Next’ when you have filled out both pages.
      Questions and answers window

    7. This next page allows you to set your account password for the first time. Please make sure to follow the password requirements listed on this page. All of the red X’s must be green check marks for you to be able to successfully set your password and move on to the next step. Then click ‘Change’.
      1. It is strongly recommended that users DO NOT write down their password in any location.  Instead, write down the password hint that will help to jog your memory.  You could also writ down some hints for your security question answers which would also allow you to reset your password should it be needed in the future.
        Enter new password window

    8. At this point, you have successfully activated your network account and finished the onboarding process. Please remember both your username and your Lynn Email Address, as these are what you will use to access the myLynn portal and other online resources. If you click ‘OK’ you will be taken back to the home page for onboarding. You can close this browser window.

Step 2: Register three separate methods for two-factor authentication with DUO

Overview

Now that you have completed Step 1: Complete onboarding network account steps,  there is one more step that you need to do before you can access your email.  In an effort to protect your email and the university's data we have implemented two-factor authentication and require it for all employees who are accessing their Lynn University Office365 resources from off-campus.  Two-factor authentication is an extra layer of security designed to ensure that you're the only person who can access your account, even if someone else knows your password.

Before you complete this step, read below:

  • Please wait a full 24 hours from the time that your manager received the onboarding email from Employee Services before you attempt the following steps.   

Complete the steps below register, at a minimum, three separate methods for two-factor authentication 

This is one of the most important steps.  If you do not complete this step, you will not be able to access Lynn University Office365 resources when not on campus.  We recommend you register a minimum of three methods of secondary authentication in DUO. Duo Push, Cell SMS (text message), and Desk Line. If you register only one method, for example, the DUO Push app on your cell phone or your cell phone number for SMS, and you lose or replace your cell phone, you will be locked out of your account. To regain access to your account once you are locked out is to contact IT Support Services Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM  EST.

Click the link below for more instructions on how to register in DUO.
