Feature Request - Use Temporary Password for First Login

Instead of requiring the user to follow a password reset link, it would be much more convenient to give them a temporary password for their first login. 

This issues arises because we are using Okta + gMail. The user doesn't have access to their work gMail account until they have setup Okta, but Okta wants to send them a password reset token to the email (which they haven't set up yet).

We are currently forced to add the user's personal email address for activation, and then remove that email once the account has been setup. I worry that we may forget to remove the personal email address, which is a security concern for me.
