Signup Alumni FAQ
Invitation Email Link Expired
If a user receives an invitation to join, the email contains a one-time link they can click to set their password, continue the registration and any associated approval logic defined.
If the user clicks the link and then later clicks the link again, it will generate a "This link has already been used" message and will resend the user another unique link via email.

I need to reset my password.
User can click SignUp/SignIn and the link "Forgot Password" appears under the username.
