PDMWorks Enterprise 2008 License flexibility

With the release PDMWorks Enterprise 2008, there are some enhancements related to how the client licenses are used.  In previous versions, the administrator had to decide the license type that a user needed up front and the user could not change it after the initial installation.  For example, if a user needed read/write license only 10% of the time, and view only access 90% of the time, the user still needed a PDMWorks Enterprise contributor license or "editor" license.  Now the user can change the license type by opening the Administration tool, selecting help, and choosing the required license from the drop down list (see attached image).  The user has to reboot the computer following each license change, so it’s not something a user would want to do all the time.  But it does improve the flexibility of the PDMWorks Enterprise environment.
