SharePoint Password Reset Tool Allows to Reset and Change Passwords in an OU
SharePoint Password Reset and Recovery web part is used for quick and simple resolving of situations when a user forgets his password or the password is expired according to password security policy. In this case, user must contact his AD administrator every time he needs to change the password.
SharePoint Password Reset allows any user logged in to the SharePoint 2013, 2010 or 2007 portal using Active Directory (AD) authentication to reset or change his password without contacting administrator. New temporary password will be sent to email box or shown online according to configuration of SharePoint Password Reset.
Any user authorized on the SharePoint site with AD login (including cases of remote access to the portal) can request a new password. In case when user cannot be authorized on the SharePoint site, but needs to enter it, SharePoint Password Reset web part can be installed on a special WSS SharePoint site with anonymous access. This way users without ability to logon to SharePoint site can easily reset or change their password.
User can request a new password on the site online or receive it by email. According to security policy of SharePoint Password Reset in the first case before the password changing, user will be offered to answer some security questions (from one to three). Security questions are set by system administrator and the values can be taken from corresponding fields of AD profile (for instance, date of birth, mobile phone and etc.).
The newest 3.1.1 version of SharePoint Password Reset web part has the new awesome feature to make your work with AD users passwords more comfortable and effective.
Now you can allow to reset passwords to the group of users from the organizational units.
