Make Sure Employees Change Their Temporary Passwords

Saturday, December 11, 2010
It's important to be careful and thorough when creating accounts for your company intranet systems. You also want to keep an organized record. This is where workflow systems come in handy.

What kind of data will there need to be processed? If you have three systems (e.g., groupware, ERP system, CRM system) you might have six fields of data: groupware ID (text) and temporary password (text), ERP ID (text) and temporary password (text), CRM ID (text) and temporary password (text). This way you can process multiple applications at once.

Additionally, you can add a task for checking whether the employee changed the password or not, about a week later. This is to make sure everyone follows the company's security policy.
