General Instructions

Login to the PrimeRx web app

Login to the PrimeRx web app is by your Pitt username and password. To create a report, simply choose the semester. The report will show counts for all co-curricular activities you have added to your dashboard, or you have authenticated via a QR code.

Note: your Pitt username, is the part BEFORE @pitt.edu. It is generally three letters and a number (Example zqz49)

QR Codes & Links

The PrimeRx web app uses QR codes or links to authenticate PrimeRx sponsored event participation and may e used for some didactic activities. All modern smart phones can read a QR code. Do not use the SnapChap QR reader however. The SnapChar reader uses Firefox and that is an unsupported browser.

The QR code or Link must be followed within 1 hour of the activity or the link will not work. If you try and follow the link and have a problem, quit the browser, and wait 5 minutes and try again.

If for any reason you can not make the link or code work for you, you can submit the activity as a student-submitted activity and it will be approved, but will require evidence to be added to the portfolio like all student submitted or catalog activities.

Supported Browsers

All student activity with the PrimeRx database is via a web interface. You must use a web browser to access the web app. The web app is supported for the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 11* or newer
  • Microsoft Edge 38 or newer
  • Safari 10 or newer
  • Chrome 55 or newer

Firefox is not supported at this time.

* If you have IE11 and you are still told the browser is too old, it is because the browser is set to use “compatibility mode.” Here are some instructions for disabling compatibility mode, and you will find other instructions with a simple web search, if these instructions are not clear enough.
