Welcome to the Mauritius Yellow Pages’ Tutorial for - “Member Sign Up”
Our Yellow Pages is a multi-language platform with English and French. This means you can select a different language at any time by clicking on the language flag in the top right corner.
As this is the English tutorial, we will proceed in English. We are on the homepage and we will click on the ‘Join Us’ button at the top of the page.
As we access the ‘Join Us’ page you will note that there are two videos: one for members - and one for businesses. You are viewing the one for members right now.
Select type of account “Member”.
Member sign up is an easy one-step online process.
Enter your details: Title, Name, and email.
For the phone number you will note that it has a grey frame whereas Mobile has a yellow frame. Yellow frames mean this is compulsory data that Yellow Pages needs.
Why do we need your mobile number? This is because we have a system update planned, where we will enable members to recover their password through SMS, and will provide a two step login for businesses.
Next, we need to set a password and here I have created some examples of passwords that are ‘Too Short’ (12345 or Abc45), or ‘Too Weak’ (1234abc or 1A2B3C4), I have one that will be considered ‘Good’ (1A2b34C5), as it contains digits and letters in lower/upper case.
However, I recommend a strong password, so I created one with lower/upper case letters, digits and symbols (1A2#b34Cd5bBe6). You will note that the system agrees that this is a strong password.
Then we have date of birth, this is for you to confirm that you are of legal age. The legal age is 18 years. Date of birth will also be part of the mentioned forthcoming updates, where we use the date of birth as a security answer. We also plan to have prize draws for the birthday men and women of each month.
Location is to help you search for businesses within your area.
Finally, you need to agree to our terms and conditions with a tick. You can read the terms and conditions by accessing the text link here.
By clicking the next button, we have now completed the one step sign up process.
This only leaves us with verifying our email address to activate the member account.
For this we need to access our email account.
As you can see, there is an activation email from Yellow.mu.
In case you do not find this email in your inbox, you need to check your Spam or Junk folder. If you do find the email there, you will need to whitelist the domain name, so that you do not miss out on future emails from us. This is generally a very simple process. In Outlook, you right click on the email and from the dropdown menu you select either Junk and/or your antivirus to select the whitelist function.
I have clicked the activation link within the verification email received. And you can see that I am now directed back to the Yellow Pages and the red notification bar informs me that my account is now activated.
I am now able to log in to my account. As you can see when signing in you stay on the homepage, but the top bar has changed and is now displaying “My Account”, “YellowMail” and the “Log Out”buttons. Clicking on the YellowMail button brings you directly to your YellowMail inbox, whereas “My Account” brings you to the member dashboard. Within your dashboard you will find another video tutorial.
Now that you have seen how easy it is to join as a member, you can start exploring the different features that Yellow Pages ONLY offers to its members.
Remember that we are here, to help connect you with your local businesses, so do not hesitate to contact us for assistance, which you can do through your YellowMail Support function.
