You must use your GCcollab account to login to GCmessage. Your GCcollab account gives you access to GCcollab, GCwiki and GCmessage, all while using the same account credentials. 

If you do not have a GCcollab account, you can create one through the GCmessage site. If you already have a GCcollab account, you can simply sign-in using your GCcollab login credentials and authorize the app to start using GCcollab Message. To learn how to do so, visit How do I authorize my GCmessage account if I already have a GCcollab account?


If you are unsure if you already have a GCcollab account, or if you are having difficulty registering for an account, please contact our help desk by submitting a ticket
