How To Use DAP’s Default Password
DAP has a feature where you can ask DAP to always generate a pre-determined, default password of your choice for all new members.
So all new users will be assigned the same default password, which of course, they can change as soon as (or any time after) they login.
This is especially useful if you want a third-party service like Aweber – instead of DAP – to send out the new member’s “Welcome Email” which contains their email and password.
Since DAP is unable to pass the randomly generated password to Aweber, instead, you can setup a default password by going to
Setup > Config > Default Password
This can be found under the Miscellaneous section on that page.
So if you set this password to say, changethis, then DAP will give out the same password to all new users.
Then, in the welcome email you configure at, say, Aweber, you would put the Aweber merge code for email id, and then enter this pre-selected password (because you already know what it is) into your Aweber email, like this:
Welcome to Example.com. You may log in to your member’s area at:
– Admin from Example.com
And if you ever change the default password in DAP, don’t forget to also change it in your welcome email at Aweber (or 3rd party email service).
Also, don’t use the default password in any subsequent emails, other than the Welcome email (very first email sent to member through Aweber), because the member may have already changed their password by then.
WARNING: You must have also set up DAP/Aweber integration first before you attempt to do this.
