Notifications via Web Interface
You can set up a message and the warning period when it should start appearing. For example, you may want that all users see your warning 3 days before their password expires.
The warning itself is completely customizable. You can personalize it with the template field for user name, user login, todays date, expiration date and number of days left to the expiration.
Alternatively, you can choose to redirect your users without any additional warnings right to the Password Change page. Or you can provide password change link in the warning message on the web interface.
Flexible Email Notifications
All user will receive an email notification urging about expiration period and further instructions. Combine email notification and web interface notification for securing your users from unexpected situations. E.g. you can notify users via email 7 days prior to password expiration, and notify them via web interface again 3 days before it. Thus, your users won’t be overwhelmed by multiple notifications. On the other hand, you can redirect them to Password Change page automatically on the next day after they receive email notification.
Flexible settings of Timer Job
You can set up the time period and frequency when the timer job will run. This is particularly useful for high-load jobs which run on multiple servers on the farm in order to reduce unreasonable load on the farm.
