TIM Tools 6.0 Administration Guide

Changing Passwords

 

There are four ways to change a member’s password:

The member can reset a forgotten password at the Sign-In screen.

The member can choose a new password in the Profile screen.

An administrator can change a member’s password at the Members > Alphabetical List screen.

An administrator can change a member’s password at the Members > Search Members screen.

 

 

1. Members can reset a forgotten password at the Sign-In screen.

Members who have forgotten their password can have their password reset and sent to their email address from the Sign In screen. They simply enter their email address into the Password Reset field and a new, random password will be sent to them. Once they have logged in with the new password, they can go to their Profile and change it if they desire.

Figure 1. Password reset option is located on the right side of the Sign In screen.

 

 

2. Members can change their own passwords using their Profile screen.

Members who want to change their password can click the Profile link at the top right side of any page in TIM Tools and be taken to their personal Profile screen. They will need to enter the new password once in the New Password field, re-enter it exactly the same way in the Retype New Password field, and then click the Change Password button. The password will be changed immediately.

Figure 2. The Change Password area is located on the right side of a member’s Profile screen.

 

 

3. An administrator can change a member’s password from the Members > Alphabetical List screen.

An administrator who has located a member on the Alphabetical List screen can click the Reset Password button. The Reset Password screen will appear at which time the administrator can either (A) enter a new password for the member or (B) leave the Reset Password box blank which will cause the system to create a new, random password and email it to the member.

4. An administrator can change a member’s password from the Members > Search Members screen.

If there are a large number of members, it will be much easier to locate a member via the Search Members screen than it would be to use the Alphabetical List to locate the member. The administrator can enter the member’s name or username into the appropriate search field to locate the member record. When the Reset Password button is clicked for the resulting member, the Reset Password screen will appear at which time the administrator can either (A) enter a new password for the member or (B) leave the Reset Password box blank which will cause the system to create a new, random password and email it to the member.
