To join Communities, you need to have a Bentley user profile AND a Communities screen name -- both are free and take very little time to set up.
Step 1 - Create a Bentley User Profile
First, go to http://communities.bentley.com/ and click the "sign-in avatar" towards the upper right corner of the page.
If you already have a Bentley User Profile, skip to Step 2, otherwise click on the "Sign Up Now!" link.
A simple form will then be presented -- fill-in the information requested and then click "Submit".
Step 2 - Create a Communities screen name
Once you have a Bentley User Profile, you then need to have a Communities screen name. You can do this by doing the following:
Then, at your earliest convenience, close ALL *.Bentley.com sessions in all Web browsers on your computer. Once that is done, you should be able to sign in to Bentley Communities.
You only have to do the above one time. From then on, simply click on the "sign-in avatar" and enter your username and password that you entered for your Bentley User Profile and you can then use Bentley Communities.
NOTE: If you attempt to sign-in to Bentley Communities and keep getting the "sign-in avatar", check to see if your Bentley Communities screen name is blank in Step 2 above. If it is, follow the steps there to create your Communities screen name.
After you have successfully signed in, you can navigate to one of various working areas and begin engaging with other Communities members.
