Introduction To Sign On

There are a few things to consider about signing on to Collect!.

There are two parts to the process. First, how would you like to sign on, and secondly, where do you want to end up when you have signed on?

The Signon function is very flexible.

You can start Collect! and automatically be signed on with the same user each time. This is useful if you are running a small single-user office and do not want to enter an ID and Password every time you sign into Collect!. The down side is that anyone who has access to your computer can also sign on as you. You may use your operating system's security and sign on procedures to deal with this. Or, perhaps, simply lock down your computer when you are not there.

If you have more than one person who needs to sign into Collect! then it is highly recommended that each user sign on with a unique ID so that you can account for each person's activity in the database.

It is still possible to have other users sign into Collect! automatically using their assigned ID's and passwords. You can automate who signs in, and the database they specifically need to sign into, by using Collect! command line arguments in the startup icon on your Desktop.

You can even use command line arguments to prevent a user from exiting Collect! or stop them from accessing other programs.

It always benefits your operations if operators can work quickly and efficiently with a minimum of extra steps. When an operator arrives at work and turns on their computer, without touching a key or selecting a mouse button, they could be presented with their WIP List ready to work.
