This is a SharePoint web part software tool that lets users reset their passwords without the intervention of an administrator or a IT personnel.
SharePoint Password Reset lets users reset their password right on a web part without intervention from SharePoint administrator. A new password will be sent online or through email delivery. Users will be able to set up their own security questions. The password reset can be based on either of two methods. One can be based on answering the security question correctly. The second method of sending a reset link by email also could be used equally easily. Involvement of the system people in constantly helping users to reset forgotten passwords can be quite a burden. Yet a user locked out of the system costs the company money. This self service means of taking care of the problem is a useful solution.
When setting up the security system process, you could set up to three questions to authenticate the bona fides of a user. With SharePoint Boost Password Change & Expiration, password expiration is notified beforehand. The logged in user is able to change his/her password from the main menu. This tool proactively reminds users of password expiration. That reduces the True Costs of Downtime (TCD) as a user being locked out is prevented to a very large extent. All this is an improvement on the default capability of the SharePoint which needs significant time investment on the part of the administrator on this one issue alone. This is thus a nice and handy tool that can save a lot of time of the IT people and yet save users from being locked out.
