RTA Web - Password Resets
Times arise where a password needs to be reset. An Admin of the software can change a password for a user or the user can change their password on their own.
Users have the ability to change their password to a new password once logged into the system for safety precautions and request a new password if the a password has been forgotten.
A user can use the Forgot Password link at sign in to reset a forgotten password IF they have an email on the user profile in the web platform. If no email exists, an admin would need to update the user’s password and add an email address for that link to work.
