Summary0019061: When adding a subadmin there is no option to add password on the interface
DescriptionWhen creating a sub admin you can not set a password for the user created via the interface and there is no email sent to the user added for them to do that. So for the subadmin to sign in the database needs to be accessed to set a password.

what do you mean? You can set the password when you create a sub-account (see screenshot)

Yes, that's how it works on hosted version, but the problem I described is on self-hosted v. 3.3.1
See screenshot.

Ah, hmm. You should be able to add the email address and then the "reset" system will send a link to set the password.

I'll check.

I just tried, and when you enter an email address and choose "Yes" for the reset password, you do receive an email with a link to set the password.

If that doesn't happen for you, there's something wrong with sending emails.

Yes, you are right. I updated the documentation, but I find it quite confusing and the way it's designed on phplist hosted is a lot better.

@Suela good that the docs have been updated. Please think about/discuss a better solution for handling this on self hosted and write up the improvement as a feature request in a separate issue so it can be tracked there. You can create a relationship to that new issue and this one, and then close this ticket for future reference.

I'm working on improving the interface for creating subadmins. When admin creates a subadmin account, they will be notified that an email has been sent to the subadmin email to set the password.
