Wishing to tighten our security, we would appreciate users (both locally and also remotely in other locations) being able to change their own passwords without either needing the person with the Admin login been present to sign in so it can be changed, or for the person with the Admin login needing to disclose the admin login password so that the user can change their own password.

It should also be possible to set minimum standards for passwords in terms of number and type of characters used and to set a password reset time limit (must change every 6 months etc).

Hi Hari. We have previously given thought to including this feature, thank you for bringing it to our attention once again. We will look at introducing the ability for a user who is logged into Front Desk to change their own password. Note that this is different from a user who has forgotten their password as we still believe it is best practice that they contact their Front Desk administration to have this changed.

A revision of the security settings in Front Desk is planned for later this year.
