VelTrak password issues | Issue 194

Nov 3, 2023

Having trouble logging into VelTrak to approve your VSD? Being advised you have the wrong or incorrect user name or password?

This will most likely be due to the storage of VelTrak moving from a land-based storage unit to the cloud back in March.

  • Be at least eight (8) characters long (same as now)
