Summary: It is no longer necessary to compose passwords for employees as they are now generated automatically. Old passwords work as before.
Before this change, managers would have to come up with a password when creating employee accounts. This often proved cumbersome, especially for companies with many employees.
As of 12 January 2022, employee passwords are automatically generated. All existing employee accounts were given a new generated password, but employees can continue to use a password they had previously created.
