Resetting All Passwords

You can reset all users' passwords (including the administrator's) at one time.

Usage example 1. When you are setting up your application, create users and set their Status to Active, but don't email their passwords to them. After the setup is completed and the application is ready for use, reset all passwords. This action sends emails to all active users at once, notifying them of their temporary passwords and giving them access to the application.

Usage example 2. You have changed your password control policy and want all users to conform to the new policy. Reset all passwords so that the users must change their passwords when they next sign in.

Before you begin. To perform this procedure, your role must include the Manage Company - Reset All Passwords privilege. Also, each user role must include the Reset Personal Password privilege.

To reset all passwords

  1. In the upper right corner of any page, click the Admin global link.
  2. In the Company Administration section, click the Company Administration link.
  3. In the Company Profile section, click the Company Profile link.
  4. In the Company Profile title bar, click the Reset All Passwords button.

    Emails are sent to all the users, notifying them of their new temporary passwords. Users currently signed in are able to continue working but will need to enter their new temporary passwords when they next sign in.
