You should have received your Welcome to Report Distribution System (RDS) confirmation email with your User ID, RDS Web Guide and Local Printer Worksheet. Before signing on to RDS, please take a moment to review the RDS Web Guide, which is also located on the Forms and Guides page.

You now have the option to setup Local Printing, which allows you to print from RDS. It requires that you have access to a network printer with a static IP address, no printer security assigned and postscript language. Complete the RDS Local Printer Worksheet, which is also located on the Forms and Guides page.

Security has created an initial password, which consists of the last four digits of your social security number, followed by the first two letters of your last name. If you already have access to PIDMS or DMAS, you do not need to create a password for RDS. If you do not have access to these applications, you MUST create a new password before you can login to RDS. Follow the password instructions provided in the welcome email.

To login to RDS, go to the RDS Home page and click on RDS LOGIN. If you need RDS Web training, click on ULearn to register for the next available class. If you cannot attend the RDS Web training, click on Online Tutorials.

If you have questions or need additional assistance, contact RDS Help Desk at (305) 284-8033 option 1 or email the RDS Staff.
