How to generate passwords for users that exist in ActiveCampaign, but not in WordPress?

Memberium Admin — 

Your users are currently in ActiveCampaign and they don’t have a WordPress record? You want them to access your membership site, but since they don’t have a password, you are wondering what is the best way to go? Here’s how you can make this happen…

At the very begining, we need to check if you have selected a password field in Memberium. In order to do that, you’ll need to navigate to Memberium => Settings => Login tab.

Selecting ActiveCampaign password field in Memberium

Once that’s verified, we can proceed to ActiveCampaign. In there, we’ll create an automation which will be used to generate and email the password to your users. This is just an example automation, so you can modify it to suit your needs. The two most important parts in the automation are password generation web hook and email.

Once we have created an automation, we need to add a password generation web hook. That can be found in Memberium => Settings => Web Hooks/Links tab => Password Generator Example:). Once we add that, we need to send the email with the login credentials.

Here’s how basic password generation automation looks like

Example of the welcome email

Since our automation is now fully created, we can start adding users into it. In the example automation we’ve created, users can be added if tag “Test” is applied (or if we manually add users to the automation without applying the tag).

We need to make sure we add all the users we want and once automation has finished, users should be created in WordPress. Also, their password will be visible in the selected password field in ActiveCampaign. Please note that password will be removed from ActiveCampaign password field as soon as the user loggs in to the website for the first time. That is because password is actually stored and used from WordPress and not from ActiveCampaign field. The reason why it is initially placed in the ActiveCampaign field is because that allows you to email it to your users.
