Force a Password Change


Occasionally, a member of your campus will lose track of his or her password. In such an instance, you are able to manually “force” a password change so that the member can easily create a new password for him- or herself.


Before You Begin


  • Identify the first and last name and the username of the individual for whom a new password is needed.
  • Decide upon a temporary password for the individual.

Example: changeme


Begin


  • Locate the Site Administration menu on the left side of your landing page. This is the page you see when you first login to your EasyCampus. Click Users and then click Accounts. In the list of options that unfolds, click Browse List of Users. The middle portion of the screen will change and you will be able to see all the members of your EasyCampus.
If you have a Tools menu, you can click See All Users instead
  • Locate the name of the individual whose password is lost and then click the Edit link to the right of the name. The screen will change to let you alter the profile information of the campus member.
  • In the box next to New Password, enter the temporary password for the user.
  • Click the Force Password Change checkbox.
Changing a password
  • At the bottom of the form, click the Update Profile button. The temporary password will be saved.
  • By email or other means, inform the member to login using their previous username and the temporary password. When they do so, they will immediately be prompted to change the password.
