Function accounts

Function accounts are e-mail addresses for institutes and projects. On this page you will find information and instructions on how to use these function mailboxes.

Unlike personal accounts, it is not possible to log in to Viaweb with function accounts. The password can only be changed by the owner(s) of a function account. If you are registered as the owner of an account, the item "My accounts" will also appear in the Viaweb portal. On this page you can use the search field to find the corresponding account. By clicking the key symbol a new password can be set here - even if the previous password is not known.

Visit the Viaweb website by clicking on the button below.


Now log in with your login data. Attention: Do not enter the name of the function account, but your personal Unibas e-mail address and the corresponding password.


Click on "My Accounts".


You will now see a list of accounts assigned to you and you are authorized to change the password.


After clicking "Change password" you can renew the password of the account.

Note that for security reasons you will be asked for your user password again.
