How can I reset my password?

Depending on the version of Daylite you are using the process to reset your password will be different. Click the link on the side to quickly jump to the version you are using.

Daylite Cloud

Daylite Cloud customers can reset their password at the login screen even before you access your database. Simply Choose Forgot Your Password at the login screen and a new browser window allowing you to reset the password will open.

If you are logged into Daylite already you can reset the password by doing the following:

  1. Select Daylite > Change Password
  2. In the new browser window select Change next to Name and Password
  3. Change your Daylite Password

Tip: If a browser window doesn't appear, then you are using Daylite Self-Serve. For more information check the Self-Serve steps below


Self-Serve: Daylite 5 and Daylite 6

With Daylite Self-Serve you can reset you password while logged in, as well as from Daylite Server Admin. Anyone with access to the Daylite Server can reset the password of any Daylite user in the database.

Tip: For security purposes it is best to set users who should not have this ability to Normal Daylite users, and prevent access to the server to only authorized users.
