ActiveMember360 Contact Password Reset is used to send a standard WordPress reset email to an ActiveCampaign contact.
One use case for this shortcode is to send a new user of your site the standard WordPress reset email instead of an ActiveCampaign email containing the password in plain text.
It can also be used in conjunction with the shortcode [mbr_password_send] with the
automation_id parameter to keep an audit trail in ActiveCampaign of when a lost password email request is made.
The URL used for the Contact Password Reset webhook is constructed using URL segments.
The URL segment structure required is as follows:
The URL is used for the webhook URL in an ActiveCampaign automation.

Therefore ActiveMember360 will automatically create a WordPress user with a username and email address the same as that of the ActiveCampaign contact if they do not already exist. The other WordPress user settings will be as detailed within Default WordPress User Settings when using ActiveMember360.
The WordPress user will only be created for the ActiveCampaign contact if:
