Confluence is quite fond of pestering people to log in if it thinks it has seen you before. Log-in is not required to complete the app, though you may need to close the login prompt several times.

Hello, and thank you for being a part of MFF staff for 2019! Because peoples lives are constantly changing, we will be doing staff onboarding every year going forward. MFF cannot function without the hard work of our staff - thanks for contributing to making our convention great. Any personal information will be kept confidential and only used per the privacy policy (shown below).

If you have any questions about these policies, or anything else involved, please feel free to reach out

A quick note before you get started: There is a bit of ground to cover, though it will pay off. Staff will no longer need to complete paperwork at the convention in order to pick up their badge, which makes the process all that much faster for everyone. With that in mind...
