  2. Schedule your Free Trial onboarding call with us

The form will also ask you the following to help us prepare your environment:

First Steps

Once you have received your login URL from Turbot, follow the steps below to log into your Turbot Workspace.

Login

  1. Go to your dedicated Turbot Workspace URL. This will either be given to you by Turbot or defined by the organization. Reach out to your Turbot contact if there are questions.
  2. Select the turbot.com directory option in the dropdown menu. This will only appear for new SaaS customers and free trial users. This directory name might be different if the Turbot application is being hosted internally.
  3. Select Login with Turbot. This will re-direct you to the sign in page. More info can be found on our Turbot User Sign Up docs.

Optional: Add team members to your Turbot Workspace

If you are using the turbot.com authentication method, first have your team member create a free account on our User Sign Up Page.

  1. Log into the Workspace with the authentication method of choice.
  2. Immediately upon logging in, a new user profile is created. We can now assign permissions to this user.
  3. Go to the Permissions tab designated by user icon.
  4. Click the green Grant Permissions button.
  5. Leave the resource scope as Turbot.
  6. In the Identities field, type in the user name. Select the profile in the drop down menu.
  7. Click the Permissions field and select Turbot/Owner.
  8. Click the Grant button.
  9. Your team member will now have the same level of permissions as yourself. These can be modified in the future to be more specific.

Now what?

Congrats! Now that you have signed in (and optionally added a team member to the workspace), we need to import a cloud account for Turbot to manage. Click the following link to get going! Additionally, you can use the nav bar on the left to jump to a specific subsection.
