Admin Guide to Resetting User Passwords

Overview

There are 2 different ways that a User Password can be reset. Either you can reset the user password manually and notify them of their new password or you can send the user an email to prompt them to reset their own password.
Note: Admins can also set password expiration and minimum password requirements. This can be configured in Company Profile > System Setting. The default for new companies is no expiration and 8 characters, mixed case and at least 1 number for the password requirements.
