Below are some frequently asked questions regarding FloQast's Password Requirements. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to your Accounting Success Manager or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are users required to answer both security questions in order to reset their password? Are there any other steps required when resetting a password (i.e. an admin has to be actually reset it) or is it just self-service?
Yes, users are required to answer both Security Questions (case-sensitive) in order to use the self-service password reset method. There are no additional steps required from their Admins. Alternatively, an Admin or System Admin on the team can initiate a temporary password for them (instead of the user utilizing the self-service method).
