It is recommended after this process has been completed to log in to secure.fourth.com or the Fourth App, which allows users to gain access via Single Sign On, as opposed to using multiple URLs with multiple logins.
The relevant apps should now be able to be viewed within the Fourth App (depending on access levels) using the Single Sign On functionality.
