How do I check my ID Number?

02 Jun 2020 01:22 PM

Hi I have connected my desktop to CharityEngine using BOINC. I am not able to access the 'My Account' dashboard. I wanted to check my ID Number to verify the jackpot entries, but I can't seem to figure it out. Where can I find my ID number?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Arvind. 

 

[1] You can find your ID number from the your user Dashboard, under ToolBox > My Account. 

(*Except, that may not be working: in that case you can use this shortcut URL: https://www.charityengine.com/account/jackpot ) 

[2] But seems like your stats flatlined a while back, and only started up again a few days ago. So you have no entries in the current jackpot period, which is why you're seeing "n/a" for your ID number.  You'll have entries in the next period, though.

Thanks Matt. 

Is my ID the same against that is shown in the discussion forum? i.e 442? Or is there a separate ID for the Jackpot, which will appear in the next jackpot cycle?

Cheers

There is a separate Jackpot ID, which will be shown in your "My Account" page.

Alright - Thanks for the confirmation. I will await my jackpot ID in the next cycle then. 

Cheers.

"My Account" has been updated and is now enabled in the Toolbox. From there, you can find your Entry Numbers for the most recently completed jackpot cycle. (And while this drawing is underway, your points are already being earned for the next one).
