Online management help

2. Change password

A manager or writer user can change their password at any time, or have the master manager reset it for them.

A master manager will reset the password after adding a user, or a user can request them to do it, resulting in an email with a temporary password being sent to the user. If the user then logs in, but cancels the change of password, they will be locked out and will need to have the master manager do another reset.

If a user is changing their own password, cancelling it just returns to the Work list page.

See Passwords for details about the password scheme used in Smallsite Design.
