Options for Sharing Codes

Codes can be shared with patients in several ways. From the Order Confirmation page, you have the following options:

Remember, if you want to use the code while the patient is with you, you will need to sign out of your clinician account or use a private browsing session or different browser.

Option #1: Share the Code As Is

1. Share the 4-alphanumeric code as is with your patient

2. Your patient can enter their code on https://mycode.today and click Get Started

3. Your patient will be taken to the standard agreement screen. If they click I Agree and Understand, this will allow them to access their resources. 

This is the same agreement screen all users see before viewing any resource in the Content Library.

Option #2: Copy Link

1. Click Copy Link to copy a special link onto your clipboard that has your patient's code embedded into it. That means when your patient uses this link, they won't have to enter their code at all - instead they'll be taken straight to the agreement screen.
