Setting a password for a module

You can set a module password as an additional layer of security to the data in a module. Since Administrators ordinarily have full access to all modules, a module password enables you to restrict Administrator access to a module unless they know the module password. For example, you may have Administrators who have full oversight of your ChurchSuite Account but to whom access to the Giving module is restricted to Finance Team users only. By setting a module password, you can restrict module access. A module password applies to all users, regardless of the site or sites they may have access to - it's not a site-specific module password.

Setting the module password

To add a module password, head into the module settings via the cogwheel icon in the top-right corner. On the Module options tab, click Edit to change the module Password status.

When Users next log in and access the module - including your user - they are required to enter the module Password.

What if I've forgotten a module password?

For security reasons, a forgotten module password cannot be reset by a User. However, if you enable "support access" and contact ChurchSuite Support with a note of the module name, we can reset the module password for you. We may require a confirmation from the designated Account Contact or an identifiable module user.
