The login page has a limit of 3 failed login attempts before the user account locks. At this stage a system administrator will need to open the users page on the desktop application to unlock the account before the user can attempt to login. To help in this situation we have a forgot my password functionality that should be used after 2 failed login.
On the login page you will see a 'Need Help?' link. This will allow you to enter you username or email address to start the steps to reset the password.
For this to Work the user account will require a valid email address.
- To add a email address to an account open the admin menu using the cog and select the users page.
- Select the user account row
- Enter a email address and click update, this will save the changes.
