About Flinders dashboard (Okta)

What is the Flinders dashboard (Okta)

The Flinders dashboard (Okta) is your personalised single point of access to a range of services and systems at Flinders. Accessing the systems from your dashboard means you don't have to log in to each system separately, the dashboard will do this for you. You can also add non-university applications (such as Facebook) to your dashboard.

One of the benefits of the Flinders dashboard is the self-service password recovery feature. Make sure you enable this feature by providing the relevant details in your account settings.

You can access your Flinders dashboard via okta.flinders.edu.au, via the 'Quick links' on the Flinders website, or by downloading the Okta mobile app to your mobile device.

As soon as you activate your Flinders account, you will have access to a number of applications. You can find out what the different applications and systems are below.
