      Changing password through IWP

      Post

      I am setting up user accounts for several new users and I would like to have them change their passwords on first log in. They will be accessing this database through the instant web publishing feature. I have enabled the option to make the user change his or her password on next log in. My problem is that when the user goes to log in they simply get a message stating that their password has expired. I know that I need to do something with the Change password script, I just am confused as to how to implement it.

      Any help would be greatly appriciated!

      Thanks!

          Set up a layout with global text fields where they can enter their new password. Then set up the script step to take the new password from this field. You can use one scrip to take them to this layout and a button on this layout triggers a second script that uses the text entered in the global text field to change their password and take them to the next appropriate layout.
