If you are an administrator in Dugga, you can implement the actions described under this instruction to create temporary passwords for your users.

In some situations it may be valuable to be able to change passwords for, for example, one or more users simultaneously. This can, for example, be the result of students not being able to find their passwords and that emails sent from Dugga's test platform do not reach their recipients but end up in spam filters, spam or the like. For this reason, Dugga has a function where an administrator can generate one or more temporary passwords that enable students to still enter Dugga. If you are an administrator, just follow the steps in the instructions below to resolve any password issues for your users.

  1. Log in as Administrator in Dugga and go to the Admin tab by clicking on the link. See the picture below.

  2. Make the selections that are suitable, for example, select a class and choose a role, in the example below a "student" and the class "test class". See the picture below.

  3. Select the students to whom new passwords should be generated by ticking them, either one or all at once by ticking the box to the left of First Name as below.

  4. In the Action field, select the action "Generate temporary passwords for selected users". See the picture below.

  5. The following will be shown as shown below on the right:

  6. Then click on the right arrow to the right of action as shown below.

  7. The selected users will be shown along with a text describing what will happen. Click on generate new passwords and a list of the new temporary passwords will appear on the screen. See below.

  8. The picture below shows how you can choose to download the list either as a text file (CSV) Excel document (XLS) or copy to the clipboard so that the list can be copied into any program, eg at the far right. When this is done, users can log in to Dugga with the temporary passwords and change to their own permanent password.

Remember to urge students to switch to a secure password that they can then remember. A password that contains both numbers, letters and special characters and which is 10 characters or longer is usually good to have because then it will be more difficult to force for unauthorized people.
