Dear CGX user, As announced, the CGX account transition has started! (March 15, 2011 - 8:30 am Rome time

This account transition overall may take up to 24 hours to be completed, although the tools are fully functional at all times. Here are the instructions  you should consider upon first login to CGX:  
  • Upon first sign-in: when you login to cgxchange.org using your account, you will see a screen that displays the Google Policy notice which you should agree to, which in essence:
    • specifies that all data in a 'cgxchange.org' Google Apps account, continues to be owned by the CGIAR and may be monitored by the administrators.  This is correct and you should click on "I accept"

Important Notes:
  • Be reminded that the standard email system in the CGIAR is still Microsoft Exchange (cgiar.org) and the cgxchange.org account is used for collaboration and not for mail; 
  • The CGXchange admin team does not have a CGXchange private policy in place, but we will start working on one to ensure we comply with other privacy policies in the CGIAR.
  • After first sign-in:
    • cgxchange.org users will not see any major changes. Everything will look quite similar and users can continue working on the tools as usual. We will be informing CGIAR users on the CGXchange home page to look out for any new changes.
  • If you also managed a separate GMail account:
    • cgxchange.org users will no longer be able to access multiple Google accounts in the same browser unless they enable an optional feature to use multiple Google accounts simultaneously. This extra setting will help users work on two different Google accounts in the same browser.
