Welcome emails to offer optional password reset link

I am using an invite only workflow. I send out a welcome email with a link to my application’s lock widget changePassword page. The user must enter their email address and click the button. Then check their email again for the password reset email, click it, change password, then it redirects to lock widget again login screen and login.

This flow is less than ideal. There isn’t a real reason why this couldn’t be shortened to a single welcome email containing the change password link in it, in effect, combining the two emails together.

It would be a much better user experience. How hard would it be to add this as an option to the welcome email template? Just have something like {{ change_password_url }} available etc…
