Setting a password for a module

For each module in your admin-facing ChurchSuite platform you can optionally set a password, adding a further layer of security to the data within the module. While Administrators ordinarily have access to all modules, a module password prevents even an administrator accessing a module unless they know the module password. For example, you may have Administrator users who you wish to have full oversight of your ChurchSuite account, but for whom you'd like to prevent access to the Giving module where giver and donation data may be considered confidential. With a module password you can ensure that only those with the module password access that confidential data.

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 to be secured, 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 the New Password and also the Confirm Password that you would like to use for this module. A password Strength and Password Criteria indicator is provided 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 takes 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 password altogether, but in either case you will first need to confirm your Current Password before any changes can be made.

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 on your ChurchSuite account and contact ChurchSuite Support with a note of the module name, we can reset the module password for you. Note that we may require confirmation from your church's designated Account Contact or from a user that has permissions for the module.
