It has been noted that some members and guides are using their SAHC website login number containing preceding zeros instead of their member numbers on Trail sheets, Hike Submission Forms, Hike Results Forms and Membership Renewal forms.
Member numbers do not contain preceding zeros, only the website login uses preceding zeros to obtain the six characters required for the login process. Members may also change their password to any password containing at least 6 characters.
Using preceding zeros in the above processes may result in additional time and cause errors in the processing of the forms. In the Hike Results form using preceding zeros in the member numbers may result in the form returning Unknown in the member name field. If not corrected the Bulletin Editor must lookup the names and this results in additional time and effort to publish the Bulletin and eBulletin.
The incorrect numbers may also cause errors in the processing of SAHC statistical reports and other forms.
Thank you for your cooperation.
