We decided to bring you a blog about this not well known but very useful extension from our portfolio.
This extension becomes even more important, when Vtiger 7.4 was released with own password policy:
It is because not everyone wants to have defined password policy by a system. They want own policy like to have 4 characters long password, do not use any symbols or uppercase letters,
With this extension you can define your own password rules or let’s use a word policy in your Vtiger CRM system.
All you need to do is install the extension via our Installer and just do a setup for password policy in it.
We will bring you few key steps in this block which you need to follow.
To install an extension Password Config, we suggest you to check our Installer manual where you will find everything you need.
You will be needing validate your license key you purchased, or you can do a Trial for 14 days if you want.
