As you may be aware, some significant changes in the way of password security have recently been implemented in Learn-Wise. We think password security is incredibly important to everyone who accesses the system. Consequently we have taken additional steps to ensure passwords remain secure. Here is a recap of the changes to password security implemented to date:
1. Admins do not input a password when creating new Users.
When adding an individual new User, there is no password field.
When importing Users in bulk, the new template does not have a column for the password.
This is because…
2. Users now receive two automatic emails from Learn-Wise when their account is created: one with their username, and one with a temporary password generated by the system.
Users are prompted to change that temporary password the first time they log in.
Admins can customize these email templates in Communications > Email Templates.
You can still help users out if they forget their password, but the process is a little bit different. Now, you will reset the password for your users rather than creating a temporary password for them yourself. This new system-generated password is emailed directly to the user.
3. Admins can reset a password for their Users.
Go to Accounts > Users
Click the edit icon
Click Reset Password

4. Users can always reset their own passwords by selecting Reset Password from the login screen.
