What Does "Force Password Change" Do?
- Forces a user to change their password upon next successful login

Why "Force Password Change"?
The "Force Password Change" feature serves several essential purposes:
- Enhanced Security: It ensures that users, such as athletes, are required to change their initial passwords, adding an extra layer of security to their accounts.
- Password Assignment: It allows you to assign a password to a user, enabling you to communicate it outside of the application, such as verbally or through other secure means.
- User-Friendly Transition: It facilitates a smooth transition for users, as they can initially use the assigned password and later create their unique one for future logins.

Step 1: Creating a New Password
- When athletes reach the login page, they are asked to create a new password and confirm it.
