Ford Motor Company eRooms
eRoom is a virtual project headquarters. It is the central location where team members can actively post and edit their work, reference it, manage deliverables, and track progress.
Team members can add their ideas to a discussion as their schedule permits and when ideas are fully formed. The context of the conversation is maintained because any discussions about the project or its deliverables are always right at your fingertips.
eRoom levels the playing field for telecommuters, flex-time members, members from other time zones, and external partners such as business partners. Everyone who is invited into the eRoom is able to see the information that matters to them. No more e-mailing and calling back and forth for information--it's all there.
You will need one of the following browsers to use eRoom:
- Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher (preferred browser)
- Netscape Navigator 4.08 or 4.7x (Not the recommended browser. Note Netscape 6 is not currently supported.)
If you are not using the plug-in, the browser is the only requirement. If you are using the plug-in you will need a computer with a minimum of 133 MHz Pentium, 32MB of RAM and 4MB of free disk space.
The Coordinator of an eRoom is responsible for inviting others to join the eRoom and assigning them the role of Observer, Participant, or Coordinator.
Existing e-Room participants: If you are trying to access eRoom, your eRoom coordinator will have the access information and links for you. To locate your FSN ID or reset your password, login to the FSP Home page (http://fsp.covisint.com) and click the link for "Reset your FSN Password" under the section 'Ford Utilities'.
Problems accessing e-Room :
You must log in to the Ford Supplier Portal Homepage (https://fsp.covisint.com/) and change both your FSP and FSN passwords every 90-days to remain active. If you fail to log in within a 90-day period, your access to FSP will be deactivated and later permanently revoked, which requires you to completely re-register for FSP and any applications that you had access to prior to the revocation.
You will receive a Covisint registration email notification warning at 60-days of inactivity, that the FSP ID is 60-days inactive. The communication will provide you with instructions on how to avoid becoming deactivated at 90-days. In addition you will receive an email notification at 90-days of inactivity, informing you that the FSP ID has been deactivated.
Note: If your FSP ID has been deactivated, upon logging in to FSP you will receive the following error message: "You have not utilized this package over a 90-day period of time and your account has expired. Please contact your Corporate Security Administrator to have your account reactivated." Once deactivated, only your company CSA can reactivate it. If your ID expires, you will no longer have access to eRoom. If a new FSN ID gets assigned to you upon reactivation, you must contact your eRoom coordinator to remove your old ID from the eRoom, add your new ID, and update your access controls.
