Reset Password - provide link

I'm importing over 8000 users into my user database, and need to allow them all to login. Instead of clicking the forgot password link, waiting for the email, and then resetting, I want to include a link to the reset password page in SA, on my member profile page. This way, I can give everyone a temporary password that they can log in with, then go to their profile and click a button to "Change Password" so that the new password will also be encrypted.

Can I include that dynamic link on the profile page so that this can be achieved?

Yes, the link to the profile page.

add an if statement that will show the link only the password is the default value:

<?php if($row_recordsetName['passwordColumn'] == "default password") { ?>
forgot password link
<?php } ?>

I'm sorry, after reading my post, I wasn't clear. I was actually wondering if there is a way to dynamically generate this link, and place it in the user_update page.

/forgotpassword.php?fp_id=7&fp_email=brendan%40dciwebworks.com&fp_data=dfa9e1cf07ec6f0f66d1f2a74d4839ae

No, that link is generated by the forgot password page, they will need to visit the forgot password page to have the link generated and sent to their email.
