Members Resetting Passwords
Members are able to reset their password on their own without logging in by using the Forgot Password link located on the Login Page of the website.
When the link is clicked it will prompt a question if you forgot your username or password.
When the forgot password is clicked, it will ask for an email address to send your new password to. It must match the email address that is associated with the member account.
If a member does not remember their email address, they would contact whichever site administrator receives the password updates. If your club does not have one on file, it will go to Clubessential Technical Support.
