Follow the steps below to create a test database using your production database. Once you create a test database, it will appear in the Company drop down when you log into Evosus.

If you are using your test database as a sandbox for exploring the application, generally you have to update your test database when users are having trouble logging into it. For example, if you changed your password since the last time the test database has been updated, you have to log into the test database using your old password. If you update the test database, you can use your current password to log into the test database.

Use the Show Last Time Test Database was Created utility (Administration > System > Database > Create Copy of Production Database To Test Database) to see the last time that the production database was copied to the test database.
