Help. I have forgotten my password. What do I do?

Don't worry. You can easily reset your password in Impel. 

  • On the Impel login page, key in your User-ID
  • Click on the Forgot your password? link
  • When you do this, Impel shows you the Hint question that you had set up when you logged in to Impel the first time
  • You also see a box, where you can key in the answer to the Hint question
  • Once you enter the right answer to the Hint question, Impel will send you an email to your registered email ID with a system generated random password
  • Please change the system generated password to something that you can remember easily.

How do I change the system-generated password?
  • Login to Impel using the system-generated password that you receive in your registered email mailbox

  • Select  the "My Profile" link from the drop-down menu that you get when you click on your name in the top right hand corner of your screen

  • Select "Click here " link  located next to the “Password”  field

  • In the "Current password " field, enter the system-generated password that you received from Impel. In the "New password" field, enter a password that you can easily remember, but is secure. Generally, we suggest that your password be at least 6 characters long and should have a combination of upper and lower case alphabets, one numeric and one special character.  Enter the same password in the "Confirm new password" field. If the two passwords match, your password will be changed. We suggest that you log out of Impel and log back in with your new password.

What are the Quick Add pages?
Quick Add pages are the Add pages that are available for all the major objects in Impel. The idea is to allow you to add some missing data

quickly. For example, let's assume that you are adding a New Contact. You key in all the data that you want for the Contact. But when you

start keying in the name of the Account, you realize that the Account that you want, is not in Impel. You can now click on the Create a new Account link that shows up on the No Matches pop-up window. This will take you to a pop-up window where you can add in the basic information for the Account very quickly. When you Save and close the pop-up window, you will be back on the Add Contact page, without having lost any of the details that you had already keyed in there.

How can I change the layout of the Quick Add pages?
The Quick Add pages are configured to have the minimum data required to set up that object. If you want any other additional fields on the Quick Add

Quick Add Layout button

page, you can click on the Layout button as shown here. You will then see a list of all the available fields on the left hand side of the page that comes up. Double click on the fields that you want to include. Move the fields to wherever you want them on the Quick Add page.Save the layout. The new fields that you added, will now show up on the Quick Add page.
