    New students how to change passwords in Office 365?

    I've got our new year 7s in tomorrow and have setup all their Office 365 accounts with a CSV import.

    Each student has a temporary password and I've printed these all out ready to go.

    How do they change their passwords once logged in? I get asked nothing on login, and clicking the change password on their accounts throws up an error and link to a non existant help page!

    Nevermind, seems I had to reset the user passwords manually.

    Then when they login they see the change password screens.

    Check out some PowerShell commands here

    You could set all user accounts with the same default password then optionally force users to change theirs (for example)

    You need to get the Windows Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../jj151815.aspx

    Install the MSIs on your Administrator PC then pop it open and run this command:

    Import-Csv "Passwords2reset.csv"|%{Set-MsolUserPassword -userPrincipalName $_.UserPrincipalName –NewPassword YOURNEWPASSWORD -ForceChangePassword $true}

    This allows you to reset a list of passwords to the same new password and then each user has to change their password when they login.

    The CSV has to be in the format:

    "UserPrincipalName"
    "USERID@yourdomain.org.uk"


    Hope this helps?
