Setting The User's Login Password

Hover over the third navigation pulldown to go to the Password screen.

Admin - level 3 pulldown.png


Passwords are encrypted in the application for security's sake, so the ATiM application cannot show nor retrieve Users' passwords. They can only be changed. On this screen, you will have to enter the password in twice, once in each field. Both fields must be filled in, and both fields must be filled in exactly the same. This acts as a confirmation that you are not mis-typing the password. When you have made the edits, click the Submit button on the bottm left directly underneath the form. The password should update immediately, though the User may may have to log out and back in to see changes.
