Setting a password for a module

For each module in your admin-facing ChurchSuite platform you can optionally set a module password, adding a further layer of security to the data within the module. While Administrators ordinarily have access to all modules, a module password prevent even an administrator accessing a module unless they know the module password.

These passwords are quick and easy to set up, so let's get started! In this example we'll set a password on the Giving module; however the principle is identical for all the other modules.

Setting the module password

Within the module, click on the 'padlock' icon in the upper right hand corner of the page.

Next, click on the "Module Password" drop-down menu and change the setting from "Disabled" to "Enabled".

Then, enter and confirm the password that you would like to use for this module. A password strength and criteria indicator is displayed to help you create a secure password. Click "Save Changes" once you're happy with your selection.

After saving your new module password you will need to log out and log back in to ChurchSuite before the change can take full effect. Once you have done this, attempt to access the module. If the previous steps have been completed correctly you will be immediately asked to enter the module password and will not not be able to access the module until you do so correctly.

If you ever wish to change or update your password, or if you decide that you no longer want to have to use one to access the module, you can easily change these settings by once again clicking on the padlock icon.

You will then be able to either enter a new password or disable the module password altogether, but in either case you will first need to confirm your current module password before any changes can be made.
