How can I tell who is Logged into PDMWorks Enterprise?

I have recently been asked, How can I tell who is logged into PDMWorks Enterprise?  I want to be able to reboot my server and I want to make sure everyone is logged out.  Answer: PDMWorks Enterprise does not use any fancy license management software, it keeps track of licenses and logged in users inside a SQL database.  So, to get a license count, all you have to do is run a user search from Windows Explorer.

When logged into PDMWorks Enterprise go to Tools > Users (if there is no Users pick available, your admin has to turn this on in the Search Card form)

Usersearchscreen_1 When the search dialog comes up, just make sure the box marked

"Show logged in users" is checked and the box marked "Show logged out users"

is unchecked.

Next select the search button (upper left corner, looks like a magnifying glass)

A list of all logged in users will display. You can see user information related to those users and you can send them an email by Right-clicking on the user

s name and selecting "Send Mail"

.  It will send the mail using the internal notification system or using your normal SMTP server.  Questions, visit InFlow Technology
