This would be helpful as we have just implemented an ideas portal and a lot of users have had trouble setting a password as the only method to create a password is using the Forgot Password link. It would be helpful as an administrator if i could reset their password on their behalf
Thank you for your idea. It is currently possible for an administrator to send a password reset email to a portal user. This can be done from Settings > Account > Configure portals. Select the portal and then click on the user's email address from the Portal users tab. Here you will see a button to send a password reset.
Given this capability and security concerns with allowing users to set passwords, we are unlikely to implement this idea. We hope you can understand.
