G-Suite Administrator Account Password Reset

By Google (Google Apps, Gsuite) No Comments

Password reset for G Suite users:

When a user with Administrative access of your organization forgets the password for their managed Google account, or if you think the account has been compromised, you can reset the password by following the below instructions.

How to reset an Administrator password:

To reset the password of another administrator, you must have Super Admin privileges. If you have Super Admin privileges, follow the same steps as above for resetting a G Suite user account password

How to reset Administrator password if unable to login to Gsuite Admin Console:

If you can’t sign in to the Admin console and need to reset your own administrator password, follow the below instructions:

  1. Open the sign in/recovery page and enter the username you use to sign in to your administrator account.
  2. Click Next. If you don’t know your username, click Forgot email?. Then follow the instructions to access your account using your recovery email address or phone number.
    (Tip: Click “Try another way” in the recovery flow if you can’t answer some questions.)

  If you don’t see recovery email or phone options, it could be for one of these reasons:

  • You didn’t add this information to your admin account before.
  • Your organization’s Google account has more than 3 super admins or 500 users.

If email and phone options aren’t available:

  1. Ask another admin in your organization with Super Admin privileges to reset your password using the Google Admin console.
  2. If you can’t ask another administrator for help, answer the questions about your Google Admin Account and your organization’s Google account. You don’t have to answer all the questions correctly to be able to verify your domain. Then, follow the instructions by Google to verify your domain
    Note: If you purchased your domain or chose a domain that’s free for one year when you signed up for G Suite, contact support using this form by Google.
  3. If you don’t see the questions about your account, this most likely means one of the following:
    • Google systems don’t have enough information about your account to verify the correct answers to the questions.
    • You recently made too many attempts to answer some of the questions. 
  4. Contact support using this Google form (G Suite only).

Important: If your admin account didn’t have a recovery email address or phone number, make sure you add these recovery options to your account once you’ve signed in to the Admin console.

G-Suite User Account Password Reset

By Google (Google Apps, Gsuite) No Comments

Password reset for G Suite users:

When a user of your organization forgets the password for their managed Google account, or if you think their account has been compromised, you can reset their password directly from the Google Admin console.

How to reset User password:

With administrator privileges, you can reset user’s passwords by following the below steps. Or if you wish to provide access for your users to reset their passwords themseleves, see the details below

  1. In your Google Admin console(at admin.google.com).
  2. Go to Users.
  3. In the Users list, find the user account for which you wish to change the password.
  4. Hover over the user and click Reset password icon Reset Password icon which appears at the right.
    Point to the row with the user whose password you plan to update
    You can also find this option at the top-left of the user’s account page.
    (Note: To see either of these options, you must be signed in with an administrator account that has reset password privileges.)
  5. Choose to automatically generate the password or enter a password.
    (By Google default, password minimum length is 8 characters. You can monitor the password strength for your organization by clicking here.)
  6. Optional:
    • To view the password, click Preview Preview.
    • Ask the user to change the new password the next time they sign in.
  7. Click Reset.
  8. Optional:
    • To paste the password somewhere, such as in a Hangouts Chat conversation with the user, click Click to copy password.
    • Allow the user to recover their own password.
    • Email the password to the user.
  9. Click Done.

Set up password recovery for users:

As you are the organization’s administrator, you can choose how to let users who aren’t administrators get back into their account if they forget their password, and below are the two ways through which the user can reset their password:

  • Option 1: Let users reset passwords themselves through an automated system (you need to turn on non-admin password recovery in your Admin console).
  • Option 2: Ask users to contact an administrator to reset their password. 

Option 1: Let users reset passwords themselves
This feature isn’t available if you’re running single sign-on (SSO) or G Suite Password Sync (more details here). It also doesn’t work for users under the age of 18. See details below

Each user has to add a recovery phone number or email address to their account where they can receive recovery instructions via voice, text message, or email. They can then reset their password by entering their Google Account address and following automated instructions.

Turn on non-admin password recovery:

By default, only administrators can reset a forgotten password using the automated system. Here’s how to let other users do this, too:

  1. In your Google Admin console (at admin.google.com)..
  2. Go to Security > Basic settings.
  3. Under Password recovery, click Enable/disable non-admin user password recovery. This link isn’t available if your organization is running SSO or G Suite Password Sync.
  4. Under Password recovery, check Enable non-admin user password recovery.
  5. At the bottom, click Save.
  6. Tell users to set up a recovery phone number or email address where they can receive password recovery instructions (via voice, text message, or email). 

    G Suite for Education users under the age of 18 can’t add contact information to their account. They therefore can’t recover their password this way. Instead, they have to contact an administrator.

    Also, Immediately remove a user’s recovery information when they leave your organization or if their account might be hijacked. See details below.

Now, if any user in your organization clicks Forgot password? on the sign-in page, they see instructions on recovering their own password. If they’ve added a recovery phone number or email address to their account and answer questions correctly, they can reset their own password. 

2-step verification: Users with 2-step verification can also follow these steps to reset their own password. However, they can only reset their password using their recovery email. If they haven’t added recovery information or don’t answer questions correctly, they’re told to contact an administrator.

Prevent unauthorized access to a user’s account:

If you turn on non-admin password recovery, immediately remove a user’s recovery information if…

  • The user is terminated or leaves your organization. That way they can’t recover their password to access their old account.
  • You suspect the account has been hijacked and the user’s recovery information is no longer legitimate.

To remove a user’s recovery information or check if it’s been hacked, sign in to the account as the user. Then follow steps at Set up a recovery phone number or email address.

When non-admin password recovery isn’t available:

  • G Suite for Education users under the age of 18—Younger G Suite for Education users aren’t permitted to add a recovery phone number or email to their account. They can’t reset a forgotten password on their own.Note: Users of any age with primary or secondary education accounts can’t supply a recovery phone number or email. The option to add a phone number or email is disabled for these types of accounts.Only users with Higher Education accounts, administrators, and teachers using G Suite for Education can supply a recovery phone number or email.
  • Organizations using SSO or GSPS—If your organization is running single sign-on (SSO), you won’t see the enable non-admin user password recovery option in your Admin console. If your organization is running G Suite Password Sync for Active Directory (GSPS) and you’ve prevented users from changing their G Suite passwords, users are redirected to Active Directory to reset their passwords. This keeps their Active Directory passwords in sync with G Suite.

Option 2: Ask users to contact an administrator

If a user clicks Forgot password? on the sign-in page, and you haven’t turned on non-admin password recovery, they see a message to contact their administrator. Make sure you’ve provided a way for users to contact an administrator if they can’t sign in to their account.

Woocommerce Membership Help

Grant Content Access

You put a lot of work into your members-only content, so Memberships lets you schedule when your members should have access to it. You can drip content, which means that you can schedule when members should have access to your content. For example, you can require that customers be a member for a week before they can access certain posts or pages.

This gives you more control over how members begin using your site and lets you introduce members to your content at your pace.

When you use this with Subscriptions, you can even determine which content is included in a free trial period with content dripping rules.

 

Reward Members with Special Discounts

Since you may want to give your members certain perks, you can provide member discounts for all products, some products, or certain product categories.

Automatically Show Members Their Perks

While membership management should be easy on you, it should be easy on your members, too. Members can find all of the information they need about their memberships in the Member Area. Members can access the area for any membership from the “My Account” page by clicking “View”.

ZPR Zeumic Products Database

By Help No Comments

Setup

Please see: https://wordpress.org/plugins/zpr-zeumic-products-database/

Downloading ZPR Zeumic Products Database

For an automatic download of ZPR Zeumic Products Database, log in to your WordPress and select the Plugins Menu. In the search bar, insert “ZPR Zeumic Products Database”, select the plugin and click “Install Now”. Post installation, click “Activate”.

Integration with ZWM

When used alongside ZWM Zeumic Work Management extra functionality is added.

1st column is added that allows the user to easily add a product to any active order. Handy to quickly update orders.

2nd column allows editing ZWM’s own field on products called ‘SKU Link’. SKU Link is used to link the product to something, such as, a Google Document or Google Spreadsheet / Microsoft Document or Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet. The products associated procedure or ‘how to’ for making, setting up, configuring, or preparing the product.

Using ZPR

Displaying ZPR on a page

To conveniently view and edit the ZPR Zeumic Products Database table, you can create a new webpage for your domain and add the shortcode [“zpr_list”] to it. (Do not use inverted commas when adding the shortocde)

Adding fields to ZPR

There are several options for fields that you can add to ZPR as to what attributes you would want with the product. You can see these in the Fields section under Dashboard > ZPR. There will be several fields that will appear in your ZPR by default. These default fields will appear with as checked in the box alongside their name in the ZPR Fields section. Depending on the details you want to add to your products, you can uncheck the default fields or even add more fields as desired. In the Fields section, the Width input represents the width of the column for that particular field when displaying alongside the other fields in the ZPR interface. The field columns will then display in the ZPR interface in proportion to their width inputs. The width cannot be changed.

Creating new products using ZPR

  1. The information needs to be added to the fields as explained below:-
    • Product ID – One cannot input this manually, it gets automatically generated after the creation of the product.
    • Title – This is a mandatory field for creating the product.
    • Slug – You can input the slug you would like to have. Alternatively, ZPR will automatically generate a slug, post the creation of the product.
    • Status – There are various options available here – you can set the Status as “Template”, “Private”, “Published”, “Draft” and “Pending Review”.

Alternatively, if no status is selected, ZPR will automatically set the status as “Published” once the product has been added.

Scroll down to read the benefits offered by the Template option and How to create and use a Template.

    • Also, it is advised to always add a Long Description to your products when creating them with ZPR. Short Description may or may not be added.

This is because adding all the description to the Short Description field might work conveniently in WooCommerce products, but when using ZPR, if the whole Description is added to the Short Description field, there will appear a “Product Description” tab next to the “Reviews”, which will not have any content in it. On the other hand, if you add everything to the Long Description, this tab won’t appear blank. Also, the Short Description section will not be visible.

The following fields are all optional:-

    • Categories – Clicking on the “Manage” option opens up the Product Categories page as it would appear in the WordPress Backend. From here, you can directly ad, edit and delete your product categories and sub-categories.
    • SKU
    • SKU Link
    • Regular Price
    • Sale Price
    • Short Description
    • Long Description
    • Meta Description
    • Product Image
    • Product Gallery
    • Tags
    • Worksheet Link (if working with ZWM – Zeumic Work Management plugin)
    • Custom Fields
    • Reviews (Ratings with comments)
    • Templates
  1. After inputting the information in the fields, click on the Green plus (+) sign to add the product. Clicking on the link in the slug field or the title of the product, will open the page of the product in a new Tab.
  2. After adding a product, it can be deleted in ZPR by clicking on the Bin icon on the right side of the product.

Adding Products to Orders

  1. Under the ‘add to order’ column of the table, use the drop down to select an order.
  2. Find the product you want to add to the order.
  3. Clcik ‘Add’ in the ‘add to order’ column.

Product Templates are a very useful feature of ZPR. When you have several products with same or similar attributes and information, you can create a template with such attributes and information and then use that template to populate all such similar products.

The information (short description, long description, images,or any other fields) that will stay the same across all the products, can be added to the top section of the template. The information that will vary across the products needs to be added in the custom fields section. It is important to note here that ZPR templates do not allowing adding of shortcodes for the Product Title. Also, product categories, product reviews and meta description do not flow directly from the template to the product. Thus, these 4 fields have to be inputted manually in every product as ZPR does not support templating of these fields.

Let’s take an example – say you have one service that you provide in several locations and you want to showcase this service as separate products in your catalog. In this case, you can create a template of such service, wherein location and the location-dependent fields are added to the Custom Fields Section. The rest of the attributes (the fixed attributes) can be directly added to the top section of the template.

Let us first learn more about adding custom fields and using them.

How to add Custom Fields and use them

  1. To add a custom field, head over to the plus signs (+) that you see below “Custom Fields”. If you want to add a custom field that would affect the Short Description and the Long Description of the product, then you need to click on the ‘+’ sign that is below the Short Description or the Long Description fixed field in the top section.
  2. A new box will open, wherein you need to set a title for the custom field. In the above example, one such custom field would be named “Location”, which would then impact the Short Description and the Long Description of the product.
  3. Other fields of the product like the Short Description or the Long Description which are also dependent on the Location custom field need to be added as custom fields too.
  4. Next you need to add the HTML text to the fields.
  5. The HTML text for these fields will change in places, where the location is to appear. For example, your short description for the product involves the mention of a location in a particular sentence, so we need to input the code {Location} where the text inside the Location custom field is to appear in the Short Description field. (To enable easy editing, you can click on the button “Edit in WYSIWYG” or “Edit in new Tab”.)
  6. After this you need to link the fixed field of Short Description to the custom field of Short Description. For this, navigate to the Short Description fixed field and add the following code to it: [“zpr”]{Short Description}[“/zpr”], where {Short Description} represents the Short Description custom field. (Do not use inverted commas in the opening and closing zpr tags)

You will need to set the Status as “Template”.  After saving the Template, if you make any changes in it and you wish to save them, click on the green tick that will appear instead of the plus sign now. On the contrary, any undesired changes made can be unsaved by clicking on the red ‘X’ sign. This applies to making changes to a product as well.

Also, in case you want to add another custom field to a template, you can do so as explained above. If that template has already been used in a product, then that product will automatically pick up the new custom field that has been added.

Do note that the name of every custom field that you add, must be unique. To edit the name of an already existing, just click on the field and it will open the Title Box again.

Adding Templates to Products

To start creating your products using this template, you need to create a new product wherein you add this template in it. To add the template to the product, head over to the Template field and select the template from the dropdown. You will then notice that all the attributes of the template have automatically been added to the product and you will only need to add the location in the “Location” field.

Also, it is important to note, that when adding a template to a product, the template fields with text in them cannot be edited in the product directly, nor can these fields be deleted. These template fields get frozen. In the image above, the custom fields with text (Short Description and Long Description) cannot be edited or deleted. The blank fields that come with the template (in this case, Location, Domain Name and Location 1) cannot be deleted too.

In case, you have already made a template, the fields of which can be useful for a different template of a new product, then you can add the old template to the new template that you are creating (for the new product). This adding of template to another template is done in the same way as one adds a template to a product.

Multi-Templating (Using several templates in a product)

  1. ZPR now supports multiple templates per product.
  2. They can be reordered by drag-and-drop. Template ordering represents priority. If two templates share a custom field name, then the higher-priority template will be used for that custom field. (If you design your templates well, this shouldn’t happen anyway.)
  3. Similarly, if you use {@template:description}, the description of the highest-priority template with a description set will be used.
  4. Otherwise, it should be self-explanatory.
  5. If two templates assigned to a product have the same custom field name, or you need to access a core field like “description”, you can do so by referencing the second template’s ID directly: e.g. {@1353:description} rather than {@template:description}.

ZTR Zeumic Work Timer

By Help No Comments

Setup

Please see:https://wordpress.org/plugins/ztr-zeumic-work-timer/

Downloading ZTR Zeumic Work Timer

For an automatic download of ZPR Zeumic Work Timer, log in to your WordPress and select the Plugins Menu. In the search bar, insert “ZPR Zeumic Work Timer”, select the plugin and click “Install Now”. Post installation, click “Activate”.

Integration with ZWM

When integrated with ZWM, a timer button gets added to every task along with an additional column of “Timer Notes” in which the user can explain how the time was spent on the task/order. The timer can be turned on by clicking on it once and after the task has been completed, one needs to click on it again to stop the timer on that task. In this way, one can determine the total time spent on each task, from what hour to what hour. The user can also add notes related to the time spent on the task in the column of “Timer Notes”.

Using ZTR

User Level

The user can turn on the timer by clicking on it once and after the task has been completed, he/she needs to click on it again to stop the timer on that task. In this way, one can determine the total time spent on each task, from what hour to what hour. The user can also add notes related to the time spent on the task in the column of “Timer Notes”. The user can also edit the time if wrongly recorded, or even delete the task completely if time has been erroneously added.

Administrator Level

The administrator can easily see the report of each employee as to time spent on each task and from what time to what time.

You can filter your report based on the date, user, client and also the SKU No (Order No/Task No). The report can also be sorted on all the columns of the report (including start time, end time and time taken).

The date-wise report for each user can also be exported to Quickbooks, by first downloading a csv version of the report, from the Export tab in ZTR in WordPress. Exporting the timesheets to Quickbooks can help one to calculate the overtime pay for each user or the pay corresponding to any other allowance which is time-dependent.

Under the Settings Tab, one can also select the number of rows to be displayed in the report and also set the default sorting options. The default setting for sorting the report is Descending Start Time.

The internal notes from ZWM are also visible in the report by default alongside the timer notes. One can also turn them off by choosing the option from dropdown.

You can also set the character limit for the notes field by adding a number (Eg. 100), so this would limit the number of characters that can be inputted in the notes to 100.

Generating Cost Reports

ZTR also helps the administrator to do a cost analysis for all the tasks performed for all clients over the period.

For this, you need to first set a standard hourly rate (cost rate) of the organisation.

You can view the reports client-wise or SKU No wise. You need to just put in the client detail or the SKU No in the respective fields and press Enter, or you can even select from the dropdown.

The reports can also be filtered and sorted on all the options of client, order no, price, qty, hours taken, effective cost and ratio.

Effective cost is calculated by ZTR as a product of Hours Taken and the Hourly rate inputted by you.

The ratio is calculated by dividing Effective Cost by the Price of the order. The lower the ratio, the more cost-effective the order fulfillment has been, the lower the ratio, the more cost-effective the order has been.

You can also modify the hourly rate anytime you wish and then click on “Load Report” to generate the report again at a different standard cost per hour.
