  • Go to the Individuals page.
  • Select the 'three pips' of the user.
  • Select Change password manually.

 

Select a secure password for now, but the user can change it again later

Step 2: Tell the user their new password

  • Tell the user their new password. 

Step 3: Important - ensure that the user follows these steps 

Please ask the user to: 

  • Be aware that both the email and password are case-sensitive. They must enter both in the exact case that is registered on the system. 
  • Write out - not copy and paste the password which you have provided to them. Copying & Pasting can copy in weird characters accidentally. Please ask them to type it out rather than pasting it in.
