Notes

Translation

Because of the complex nature of the password creation and validation process it is not possible to automatically translate existing password into other languages. If you are sending an e-mail containing the @checkactivatedpassword@ variable you can use the following syntax to display text other than "existing password" if required.

For example, for an existing user the following will show the French translation of existing password which is Mot de passe courant. If the user has not been previously activated the syntax will provide a randomly generated password as normal:

<!--@sscalculation(if(trim("@checkactivatedpassword@")="existing password","Mot de passe courant","@checkactivatedpassword@"))-->

Processing Time

System-generated emails that contain passwords bypass the typical Service Process Manager and, hence, are sent out immediately rather than being put in an email queue.
