SharePoint Change Password web part is helpful if there are a lot of AD accounts in your system, and users must change password occasionally due to security or other reasons. Remote AD users can also change passwords without any difficulties. This add-in is a part of Virto SharePoint Password Management tools that include also SharePoint Password Expiration and Reset SharePoint Password web parts.
Now, a site administrator does not need to change passwords manually. He can simplify his work and add the web part to intranet or extranet SharePoint Portal. Then any authorized user can easily change a password without disturbing the administrator.
If an administrator delegates advanced rights to a user, he can change not only his own password, but also other users’ passwords. The password requirements can be published in the web part and if a user types an old password incorrectly or his password does not meet certain requirements, the warning message will be displayed and the user cannot change his password.
If a user forgets his password or the password is expired, he needs to recover it first and then change the password to the new one. This can be done with SharePoint Password Reset Web Part, which is an essential part of SharePoint Password management system.
With the SharePoint Password Change Web Part, a system administrator does not need to change passwords manually every time. He just adds the web part to the intranet or extranet SharePoint Portal, then authorized users can easily manage their passwords without the administrator’s assistance.
When a user requests the ability to change a password, the system automatically determines the category this user belongs to — Active Directory or other Form-Based Authentication Provider (FBAP). Then the user types his old password and a new one. The web part transfers this data to the AD or other FBAP base, and the new password is saved in the database. If a user has advanced rights, he can change not only his own password but other users’ passwords. It is also possible to publish password requirements on the web part. If a user types an incorrect old password or his password does not meet the requirements, a warning message will be displayed and his password will not be changed.
If a user forgets his password or the password is expired, he needs to recover it first and then change it to the new password. This can be done with the SharePoint Password Reset Web Part, which is an essential part of the SharePoint Password management system.
