Reset passwords in Apple School Manager
When users forget their password, you can reset it. Resetting their password allows them to get a temporary password, at which time they’ll have to create a new password for their Managed Apple ID.
Students have two ways they can reset a password:
They can use the password that was previously used.
They can use a common series, such as 12345.
This option is allowed only when resetting a password.
In Apple School Manager , click Accounts in the sidebar.
Search for accounts in the Search Accounts field, then select the accounts you want to reset the password for.
Click Reset Password for a single user, or click Create in the Sign-Ins row.
You can download PDF and .csv files, or you can email the temporary passwords to the selected users.
Select your method, click Continue, then do one of the following:
If you selected .csv and PDF, click Download and choose from the following:
8-up PDF: This option creates up to 8 users per page. You can cut the page into sections and distribute the appropriate section to each user.
1-up PDF: This option creates a single page for each user.
.csv: : This option creates a .csv file with five columns: the user’s Managed Apple ID; their first, middle, and last name; and their initial password.
If you selected email, Apple School Manager sends the temporary password to the email address listed in the user’s account details. The user receives an email from Apple School Manager with their Managed Apple ID and temporary password.
