How to customize ‘forgot password’ email message

by on April 26, 2015

Dealing with misplaced or forgotten passwords is a staple of user management. In another post, I described how to send a temporary password to a user when they cannot log in. Either a temporary password or link to a password reset URL is delivered in an email message. In either case, the message can be customized using Backendless Console:

  1. Login to Backendless Console, select your app and click the Users icon.
  2. Click the Email Templates menu.
  3. Select User requests password recovery from the drop-down menu.
  4. Modify the email template text using the built-in editor.
  5. You can preview the email using the Preview button. When you are done save the email template using the Save button.
