Forgotten password Atom

Linked Help




If a contact has an account for your website but has forgotten their password, the Forgotten Password Reminder atom enables them to generate themselves a reminder that is sent to them via email. This takes minutes to add to your web pages or Web Page Template, fully configured as described in this Help Resource.


Adding a Forgotten Password Atom

You can add a Password Reminder Atom to your web page template, configure it and then roll it out to all web pages.  The process of adding and disseminating Template settings to corresponding web pages is explained in a separate Help Resource.  Alternatively, if you wish to put a Forgotten password Reminder on a specific web page/s you can simply select and change an Atom on that page to the Password Reminder Atom, following the instructions provided in the separate Help Resource.

Configuring the Forgotten Password Atom

 Open the webpage editor by clicking the "Editor" button in the top left-hand corner of the web page.

To select the Email, if you know the Object ID of it, you can simply type this number in the text box and press the return key on your keyboard. If you do not know the Object ID, you can navigate to and select it by clicking the Browse button:
