  3. As an optional step, in the Properties area, enter the serial number of the Edge that will be activated in the Serial Number text field. Serial numbers are case sensitive, so make sure that “VC” is capitalized.
    Note: This step is optional. However, if specified, the serial number must match the activated Edge.
  4. Click the Send Activation Email button to send the activation email to the Site Contact. For a detailed description of the fields and checkboxes featured in the Properties area, see the Properties Area Field and Checkbox Descriptions in the Edge Overview Tab.
