However, after following the step I’m not getting asked for a password. Also does this password protech the whole customer client area for reach customer? Can they not access there dashboard until they enter in there password?
Are these customer considered “users” by the system. Instead of clicking on a link to access there dashboard, can they just login to there account via there email and password to access the dashboard
When you add a password and send an invoice, it will send a link to that particular client’s dashboard along with the password. You can also get that link by going into the client info page and selecting “View in Portal”, which will be the page the client goes to in order to input their password.
Once setup that way, the client will only be able to view their dashboard after logging in with the password you supplied to them, but they’ll need to use the specific link you gave them as well. It will be something in the form of http://your.url/client/dashboard/<long_string_of_characters>.
So what I’m here from you is there is now way create a URL like clientportal.example.com. The clients can go to that URL login to there portal to access all of there invoices? Why does a customer have to always lick the link in the email to access the client portal?
Also is there a way to prevent the account password from being emailed to them? That is a massive security risk. In todays cyber security thief landscape why are we still email passwords in insecure emails?
Do clients have the ability to reset the password themselves? If not is this on the road map to build out?
Thanks for the clarifications, Hillel. I had completely forgotten that you get a client login URL from the settings page, and that getting a long string in the URL there is from having multiple companies on the same instance.
