Just wondering if someone could help. I've created a new user group and only given this group access to the members section, as we have users who's job it is to control their members access. However despite giving them access to the members area, when they go into a member and need to change a member's password the 'Reset Password' checkbox is not showing, so they need to know the members previous password to change it, which in most cases the reason they are changing it is because they've forgotten it.
Is there a setting or another layer of permissions that needs to be set to give this user group access to doing this?
Not a direct solution to the issue but more of a workaround - you can update the settings in your Web.config to allow any user with access to the Members tab to set a password to something new, without needing to know the old password. Specifically, you need to set allowManuallyChangingPassword=true on the UmbracoMembershipProvider.
More discussion on that here.
