Setting Login Attempts Allowed

Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Administrators

Follow these steps to set how many times personnel, students, and parents can attempt to log in with an incorrect password before their accounts are locked. (Locks can be cleared; see the links at the bottom of this page.)

  1. On the Home page, select Product Administration.
  2. Select Set Login Attempts Allowed.
  3. On the Set Login Attempts Allowed page, set the number of consecutive incorrect passwords that are allowed for personnel, students, and parents. (Parents are not listed if the security options do not allow parent access.)
  4. You can set the number of attempts as low as 3 or as high as 10, or you can choose Off to set no limit for attempts and turn off locking completely. Keep in mind that account locks help prevent unauthorized personnel, students, or parents from logging in as someone else.

    Note that the Personnel Login Attempts Allowed also sets how many times personnel are allowed to attempt to reset their password or retrieve their user name (after selecting Forgot Your User Name or Password on the login page).

  5. Select Done when you have finished making your changes.
