    Permit myGP Buddy to access EMIS Web on first use

    This is required on the first use of myGP Buddy per user, per computer terminal. These steps should be completed by end-users:
    • Open the EMIS Web application.
    • Open myGP Buddy and log in with your myGP Connect username and password.
    • Within EMIS Web, a yellow notification will be displayed asking the user to permit myGP Buddy to connect.
    • Press the confirmation button to allow the connection.
    This is a one time action and will only need to be completed again if a user logs into another machine with myGP Buddy.
