Department of Management Services People First People First On-Line Password Reset Process and New Password Requirements Production Release on April 12, 2008
Department of Management Services People First How is the Password Reset Process Changing? Users will no longer be required to call the People First Service Center when they forget their password or lock their People First user ID. Users will be able to reset their password using the new on-line capabilities. However, users unable to reset their passwords using this new feature may still call the People First Service Center.
Department of Management Services People First What Do Users Need To Do To Take Advantage of the New On-Line Password Reset Process? Once users log in to People First on or after April 12, 2008, they will be required to select three security questions and provide answers for them. Then they will be logged in as usual. These security questions and answers will be used as part of the validation process if users forget their password or lock their user ID.
Department of Management Services People First Security Questions and Answers All users must select three different questions and provide answers for these three questions. Answers are not case sensitive, meaning the system recognizes the letter, not whether it is capitalized. Letters, numbers, symbols, etc. must be entered in exactly the same way each time the question is answered; for example, if 12/08/08 is entered as the answer to a question, the system will not accept December 08, 2008 or 12/8/08. Only the user will know the answers to the questions. No one will have access to the questions selected or the answers provided (not People First, not the manager, not the human resource office, etc.).
