  5. Once you click Manage there are 4 possible views of the App management screen.
    1. No section to input credentials - If there are no input fields for username/password etc. this means this App is already connected. 
    2. Check connection button - If there is a button to check for a connection, you must fill in the credentials using the instructions provided and click this button. Once the credentials are verified, click on the Save details button. 
    3. Allow Access - Click on this button to open a new page where you will be asked to log in to the respective app. Upon successful login, the connection between the App and your Dataships account will be established.
    4. Save Details and Allow Access Button - If you come across the few apps that have both of these buttons, please input all required details and click on Save Details before clicking on the Allow Access button.
