Note: Passwords are created and maintained by the administrator at your organization. Blackbaud does not create or have access to your organization's passwords.


In The Raiser's Edge 7 version 7.8, The Financial Edge version 7.6, The Education Edge version 7.6, and Blackbaud Student Information System 7.70:

Beginning with these versions there is no method for anyone, including a Supervisor, to determine a specific user's password. This change was implemented for database security reasons. If a user forgets his password the Supervisor should instead overwrite the user's existing password and allow that user rights to change it (if needed).
