To access all Fluid Topics features, it is necessary to create a Fluid Topics account, as follows:

  2. Enter the following information:

    • Full name

    • Email

    • Password

  3. Select Sign up to confirm.

The account confirmation process depends on how an administrator has configured the portal:
