Quick Guide To User Passwords in Pastel (Version 14 and upwards)
The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) was signed into law on 26 November 2013. POPI essentially regulates how anyone who utilises personal information must handle, keep and secure that information.
Once the final components of the new law are enacted companies will have 12 months to comply.
Prior versions of Pastel did not require a password when working in Sage Pastel.
Version 14 (and upwards) and passwords now have the following requirements:
- Passwords must be a minimum of 8 characters
- Passwords must be alpha-numerical
- Passwords must have a combination of upper and lower case
- Passwords must include at least one special character
If you have upgraded to Version 14 from a previous version and you already have a password, when logging into Version 14 the first time, you will be required to update your password with the specific security requirements.
If you have upgraded to Pastel partner V14 Build 2.1 you will be required to add a email address to your user settings.
