How offen will the password change be asked.

it will not do any thing...unless you have vreated a group policy in which set password complexity and requirments etc.. so have a look at that..the root in group policy editor i think is...

computer configuration -> security settings -> account policies -> password policy

if there is nothing defined then nothing will happen.

The user will never be asked to change his password.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yes, if it is unchecked, then depending on the group policy, it will ask to be changed when it expires.
