Code-X Technical Support

I didn't get the email notification to login to the Code-X Web Application

When your Code-X subscription's account owner or designated Role Manager adds you as a user to the Code-X Web Application, an email notification with login instructions is automatically sent to the email address that was entered when your user account was created.  In some cases users may not receive the email notification for one of the following 3 reasons:

1. The email notification ended up in your Junk/Spam folder. 
Please check your spam/junk folder to see if the email was tagged as spam.

2. The email notification was blocked by your organization's filtering software. 
Many organizations implement strict spam control mechanisms which can sometimes flag email notifications from AAOS as spam and block the email from ever arriving to the recipient.  Please ask your organization's IT manager to whitelist emails coming from

3. The email address entered when your user account was created was not typed in correctly by your subscription's account owner or designated Role Manager
Typos happen.  If the email address entered when your user account was created was not typed in correctly the email notification will never reach your inbox.  Please confirm with your account owner or Role Manager that the email address was indeed correctly entered.  If it was entered incorrectly, the Role Manager needs to simply remove that email address from Role Management and then add the correct email address when assigning you a User and/or Role Manager role.

Even if you didn't get your email notification for reasons 1 or 2 above, that is no problem.  You can still successfully login to Code-X.  Below is an excerpt taken from the email notification with instructions on how to login to Code-X.  Please follow the below instructions and be sure that the email address you enter when creating your AAOS account/profile is exactly the same as the email address that was entered when your account was created.  The email addresses have to match or you won't be able to login.  If you get the "You are not as subscriber" message when attempting to login please click here for instructions on how to handle that situation.
