Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Auto-Notification of imported users and password problems

Postby jgill@alcorn.edu » Thu Jun 15, 2006 7:58 am

While the auto-email function appears to working in other areas (reset password, e.g.) my system does not appear to be generating and sending the auto-notification e-mail message to each new imported user.

I'm also confused about the password creation process. I'd like to set every imported user's password to the same thing ("my_password", e.g.) and allow them to reset it after they log in. But I can't log into any imported user accounts using the same password.

Advice on both of these issues would be helpful

Hi jgill,

Did you import your XML several times? OJS only sends notification emails to users when they are created, and if you previously imported your XML without the email notification checkbox selected, the users will already be created.

With regard to passwords, are you specifying an encryption type other than "plaintext"?
