Sometimes when accounts are created the user might not receive, notice or act on the email that allowed them to validate their email address and set a password.
When any of these things happen you need to trigger a new activation email for the user so that they can set their password.
For one or more accounts:
Method 1 - Select the account(s) in question using the checkboxes on the left and then select 'Generate activation code' from the.
Method 2 -From the details page of the account in question select 'Generate activation code' from the Actions button.
Both methods will send an email to the users with a link they can use to set their password.
With automatic deletion of non-activated accounts this action will reset the clock for the selected accounts.
If the user is right there:
If the user cannot receive the email for any reason, or is there with you, you can click on the username to enter theand set a password there and then.
Anything to watch out for?
This operation will not disable an already activated account or force a user to change their password.
