      forgotten passwords

      Post

      Is there a way to email someone a forgotten password?  How does FM store passwords?   

       

      It would sort of work to have an Admin change the password and email the changed password to the person except that I have people logging in via IWP so they cannot change their own passwords to something more memorable.  I'd prefer if the person picked their own new password.

       

      ETA: FM Pro 9.

             There is no way to recover a password, except by having the database administrator reset it for them.  Since the users are using IWP, they can change their password only by contacting the admin and requesting that they change it.  FMP was designed this way for security reasons.
