Password recovery

Until now the only way to recover your password was contacting with the administrator. From now on the user can recover his password by himself. When he fails to put the correct password a "Forgot your password?" message with a link is shown:

When the user clicks on the link goes to a page to enter his email:

After clicking on the "Recover password" button an email with instructions to recover the password is sent. Of course, a user with that email has to be registered in the system, and this leaves us to the next point.

User is asked to enter his email

In order the recovering password mechanism works it's needed that each user has his email registered in the system. So now if the user has no email XavaPro asks for it after sign in:

Entering the email is not required, the user can go to any other module and leaves the email blank if he wishes.
This new "My personal data" module is always available for all users to edit their own personal data.

New format for list of available organizations

After login when sharing user between organizations the list of the user organizations has this new look:

Note the cards format for organizations and the new icon (on top-left corner) to come back to this list from any place.
