password reset or retrieve

Post by ton.bil » Sat Jan 18, 2014 6:36 pm

The user should be able to reset / renew / retrieve a password. Momentarly it says upon login problems (in German): "When you still have problems logging in, contact the Admin." There is no way of contacting the Admin from the home page.

A more user and admin friendly password renewal procedure has been suggested years ago; I found a post from 2009, and it was said this item would be on the feature list. Most modern web services and apps have a password reset procedure where a cryptic url is being sent to the registered email address of user. This is both user and admin friendly. When will this important feature be released?

Hi,

We will add a retrieve password option in one of the coming versions.

Please do. I highly favor the development of functionality (like password retrieval) that - from a user standpoint! - can be considered "standard" or "minimally required".
