The Optimizely cloud account identifies a user and ensures that proper authorization is applied when accessing information for your DXP projects.

## Prerequisites

You need an organizational email address like _[email protected]_, associated with an enabled business Microsoft Live account. If your organization already has a verified [Microsoft account](🔗), you can also use this.


Generic accounts like _[email protected]_, or private hotmail-type accounts like _[email protected]_, **cannot be used**.

## How it works

**Step 1. Request access**

(Script tags will be stripped)

Make sure you provide correct and complete information. When Optimizely receives the information, you are normally granted access within 3 business days. You receive an email notification when access is provided.
