Password management

Updated 3 months ago by Leigh Hutchens

Send a password to a new employee

When you create a new employee, "Send welcome email" is automatically ticked. If ticked, the employee will receive a welcome email:

The email contains instructions on how to set a password, login information, and instructions on how to download our mobile app.

From that point forward, employees can reset their password themselves from the mobile app. However, managers can also trigger a new password for an employee by clicking "Send Password" in the People details panel:

You also have the option to set a one time password:

When the employee enters the one time password and clicks on login, a text will appear indicating that the password needs to be changed. After clicking on the text, they will be taken to a page where they have to set their own password and then save and login:
