I have created users but they can't login because they have no password . I want to assign a password to users not using automatic email.

Hello, is there any chance to set password for new user without using invitation system? We have strong passwords, that we use for users for all corporate portals and services, it's hard for us to give user a chance to change password for his own.

Easy. On your top menu select Settings. Then on the left menu select Users. On the new form select the user you want to change the password. User form will be shown, on the top there will be several buttons, click on More and a dropdown menu will be shown. Select Change Password. A new window will be displayed, type the new passwords and click Change Password.

Here is an image to have an even better hint:

In v7, you have the Change Password option under the More button.

In v6, just edit the User and type new password in the Set password field.
