The flows in this article provide context for emails sent when users manage their own account including:
- changing their email address
- resetting or updating their password
- out of office notifications
NoteCreating an account is part of the member management flows.
The user is authenticated and intends to change his email address. In this flow, PageSeeder will send an email with a link to confirm the change of email address.
The email is sent to the new email address. In order to confirm the change of email, the user can just click the link without needing to authenticate.
change-email token can only be used once to update the email address of the user without having to enter the credentials. It expires after a limited time.
The user is not authenticated and intends to reset his password by submitting his email address. This is a two-step process. An email is first sent to user to confirm that the password should be reset. Upon clicking on the confirmation link, the user can enter a new password without having to authenticate. The email is sent to notify the user that the password has been updated.
This process can also be initiated:
- by an administrator on behalf of the user.
- by an administrator using
forceresetpasswordwhich can skip the confirm step.
- when a member becomes an administrator (via
reset-password token can only be used once to update the password of the user without having to enter the credentials. It expires after a limited time.
The user is authenticated and intends to update his password. Since the user is already authenticated and submits both his current and new password, this is a once-step process where the email is sent to notify the user that the password has been updated.
This process can also be initiated by an administrator on behalf of the user.
Out of office notifications
This process flow is triggered when an "Out of Office" string is detected in a reply to a message sent by PageSeeder. This usually occurs when a user set her email to send "Out of office" auto-replies but has not changed her notification settings to 'On vacation' in PageSeeder.
Before the maximum number of auto-replies is reached, PageSeeder will warn the user that her notification settings will be changed to "On vacation". When the limit has been reached the user account is automatically updated and the user is notified.
This behavior is controlled by the
outOfOfficeString in the Template Properties.
