Reset User Passwords Capability Needed for Admin's

Our organization is on the Wrike Desktop version. The organizations supported browser is IE. We have 4 Admins supporting over 100 users.
At times, a user may forget their Wrike password. The current procedure for a user to reset their password is cumbersome and requires the user to have some knowledge of how browsers function. The current procedure also has a time out feature once the reset message is sent. Below is the communicated reset procedure.

Please ask the user to do the following:
• Request a new password reset email by going to the 'Forgot your password?' page (wrike.com/remind.htm);
• Go to the email inbox, open the password reset email from Wrike;
• Right-click on it and select 'Copy link address'

Then, the user should paste the link in the address bar of one of the browsers supported by Wrike in the incognito mode and press Enter.

When a user does have an issue, our system Admins attempt to support (usually remotely). The current procedure does not support a streamlined process that allows the user to quickly re-gain access to their Wrike account. Having an Admin Supported Password Reset procedure would greatly improve our user’s experience.
Please consider implementing an Admin Supported Password Reset.

This request makes sense guys, thanks for posting and voting, we'll be sure to pass it to the Product Team but I'm unsure what further streamlining they may be able to provide as the steps above are the usual password reset steps for many companies. I think providing Admins with some permissions is an interesting approach and if I have an update on that I'll be sure to share here.

I just have a quick question about the process you describe above - why is it necessary to copy and paste the link into the incognito mode, rather than just clicking it to reset the password? Sorry if it's an IE reason, I rarely use IE 😇Though IE 11 is a supported browser.

Looking forward to your reply!

The process above was provide by Wrike after users of IE experienced an endless/spinning Wrike login when clicking on the reset link. 

Thank you

Hello, any update on this?

I would like to reset a user's password on the account as they are no longer employed by the company but the email address and the tasks are relevant for the new hire.

- Why can't I just click a button to have the password reset from the Account Managment board?
- I don't have access to the employee's email, as I am only the Wrike admin, not IT.

Thanks,

Tattiana

Hi there,  

As an administrator who supports a medium-sized organization of individuals in a country where digital literacy is not very high, this would make my life a LOT easier. Please consider implementing this, it's pretty standard across other cloud-based enterprise business solutions. 

Thank you!

Hello, 

 

Earlier today I ran into a situation in which resetting a user's password would have been helpful. I hope this feature finds its way into Wrike for admins to utilize. Thanks!

Definitely a function on Workfront and was always helpful, especially when you're trying to on-board a reluctant team who "forgets their password" every time you asked them if they've checked their Wrike.  Lol.

This is certainly a function that IT/Wrike Admins need to have.  Totally understand how you can ask a user to reset and check emails - but the ability for an admin to click a button and force a reset password (or even set it for them, in the case of employees no longer with the company)

Adding my voice to those who say that this would be a very useful feature to have. As a Wrike for Marketers subscriber, there's currently no way for me to keep a departed coworker out of wrike without deleting their account – at least as far as I'm aware of. This is either a huge inconvenience or a huge security risk, depending on which "solution" you choose.

Thank you for sharing this feedback, Helge Hinniger.
 
You can deactivate a user in an Enterprise account to prevent them from logging in again, or delete them to do the same. Before you delete the user, you can use Mass Editing to mass-reassign all tasks from one user to another. This way, you'll be able to easily find all of the work this person had done before they were removed from the Wrike account.
 
Let me know if this helps! If you need anything else, feel free to reach out at any time.

I'm actually quite surprised that this feature (admin force reset password for users) is not available in Wrike. It seem to be a very common feature in all other platforms.

 

I added my vote to this as well. I just experienced 2 cases and I'm sure more will happen.

Any update on this feature? 

Off boarding users is a pain if you have to get someone to login as them to change a password.

Upvote for this. We ran into this situation this week. A user tried to reset password from the mobile app but our IT is blocking the email. Our IT has recently tightened down on email security, thus is a recent issue and not always the case. This user is currently blocked out of the mobile and browser versions, but had previously installed the desktop version; so, they are still able to perform their work. 

As a system admin, my concern is for those who may try to reset the password and have not previously installed the desktop version. We are working with our IT dept for immediate, short-, and long-term solutions, including before and after we implement SSO. 

So, my immediate concern is how to get the user access so we can keep them working?

Upvote. We have someone on our team locked out because he can't receive the password reset email due to our company's email security.

Upvote.  This would be very beneficial for all Wrike Admins. I know I have needed it several times and have to instruct differently.

Hi Gretchen Linder, Jackie Sackstein, Byron Gill, thank you for letting us know your feedback here! I've checked with the Product team - there are no updates for this one as they don't have this on their short-term roadmap due to other priorities.

Please upvote (= like) the original post above if you haven't yet - this is what helps our team understand the popularity of the suggestions here on the Community.

I am very surprised to find that I am not able to reset a users password, this is a must have feature to ensure that our companies online security policies our adhered to. Can you guys please add this function to the admin rights asap.

There are also other times when this is required eg, an HR issue where you may need lock out staff members temporarily, currently the option to deactivate users is available but only in the enterprise edition, why is this not available across the board?

Having introduced Wrike to our company 4-5 years ago, it is these small issues that really frustrate me as a business owner.
