The members of your NPO all have a password that allows them to connect to their Member Area on your site.
Yapla allows you, as an administrator, to manage your members' passwords. You can:
- choose between an automatic generation or a personalized creation of a new member's password ;
- reset the password of an existing member ;
- configure communications to send or reset passwords.
Managing a new member's password
Generate a password
By default, Yapla sets a member's password when creating their profile. For more confidentiality it is recommended to let the system generate the password automatically. Members will then be able to change it in their logged-in area.
You can also choose not to generate a password automatically when adding a member. To do this, add the Password field to your member addition form. If this field is not present in the forms the password will be automatically generated by Yapla.
Add the Password field to your form to allow the custom creation of a new member's password
Once your members have been created, you can manage the sending of their passwords in the menu Members>Settings > Communications> Manage mailings
All you have to do is click on the button to communicate their passwords to all your members.
Managing the password of an existing member
If an existing member has forgotten their password you can always reset their password.
To do so, go to the specific member's page and select the "Password" page.
Enter the new password and click on "Save".
The new password is immediately functional. The "Change Password" communication is sent to the member to inform them.
A member can also change their password themselves.
