Away from my desk – token deployment
All practices should have received Away From My Desk tokens. The tokens will replace the remote log in username and password solution as this was only a temporary measure.
Please distribute tokens to users (already with a username and password), after the 6th May this solution will cease, with tokens being the primary method to log in using Away From My Desk.
