The guidebook is accessed through the link http://www.ca4h.org/files/123942.pdf.
Logging into the Online Record Book will not be covered at training. Before attending be sure you can log into the Online Record Book site.
Your family email address, used for 4-H enrollment in the 4honline system, is the same as the one you use for ORB access. After enrollment approval at the club and county level adults will use their 4hOnline password they used for enrollment to set a password for youth to access the record book system. If you don't know your password, the system will send you a new one.
Use your registration link at: http://california.4honline.com. Right at the second page of the log-in you can establish a youth password for record books which will give youth to access 4-H Online Record Books at http://www.ca4h.org/4hbook.
Please note that we are in process of completing enrollment and until we have "approved" your membership, you will not be able to use the 2012-13 record book. We will do our best to approve those who have registered before the workshops. If you have not been approved a number of “fake” accounts will be available for you to use at the training. This will allow you to test drive the whole system and practice using all of the features. If you have registered for an ORB workshop, and have followed all of the directions, but are still not able to log in, contact Valerie Williams at the Solano 4-H office for assistance, email@example.com or (707) 784-1319.
