Step Two: Set up and Populate Your Training Account

Set up and Populate Your Training Account

Sign in and Set your Preferences

The next step in setting up your training account is to create and populate your new MPDX Training account.

The first step is to set up an incognito window so that you don't end up in your personal key account.  To open an incognito window, start Chrome and click the wrench icon in the top right corner of the screen. Click New Incognito Window and start browsing. Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+ Shift + N to bring up a new incognito window without entering the Chrome settings menu.

To login, go to mpdx.org

Once you have logged into the key (using your new fake gmail address through the key), MPDX will ask you to select an organization.  Select MPDX Trainers as your organization.  Click Connect. (Do not ever connect your training account to any other organization)

It will then ask if import donations from anywhere else. Click No.

Continue following the screens to set up your preferences. You will choose your locale, set your monthly goal ($5,000 is fine), select your home country, and set your notifications.  We suggest that you keep notifications on, coming in to your new fake email address, so that you have some MPDX emails in case you ever need to reference them during training.  You can skip the MailChimp connection, and Prayer Letters connection steps.  


Populating your account

It will end at a screen asking if you want to import data.  Click No.

Click "Nope, I'm all done! Take me to MPDX"

Once you get into MPDX, click the settings. Choose Connect Services.  

Choose Organization and then click "Import TntConnect Datasync file."

The file that you will use for your Training Tnt is located here.  It's called "datasync." You will download the file onto your computer, and then upload it into your MPDX.  This will generate contacts, contact details, and current donations.  It may take up to 24 hours for all the information to appear. 

Your fake account will not have any tasks in it.  You will have to prepare those tasks yourself.  Please find all the task need in the google folder link below.

Add this file folder to your google drive, which has the materials we will use for training.

If you lead a training session in a few months, you will need to return to this folder, and get a new datasync file so that your training account will be up-to-date.  You will have to Import the newest Tntdatasync file, as shown above.

You Are Ready!
