Where do I start?
Anyone at a business using Leaf Data Systems directly (without a third party provider) must have a Secure Access Washington (SAW) account and a unique email address. SAW is a single-sign on application gateway used by the state of Washington to simplify access to internet-accessible government services. Businesses that use a third party software provider will also need to access Leaf Data Systems directly at least once, and therefore must have a system administrator with a SAW account too. SAW works like a key to your office building. Create a SAW account here.

Initially, the only person who will be able to access Leaf Data Systems and make changes for your business is the initial system administrator. Administrators should be business owners or key staff persons. The initial system administrator account is set up based on the email address provided to LCB during the licensing process. Each business is responsible for setting up any additional LEAF users and assigning their authorization levels within the system.
