Locking and Unlocking the Application
You should be careful to lock the application before you leave. This prevents unauthorized access. You can unlock the application, returning to the same window, when you come back.
Warning If you do not lock the application, and you leave it unattended for a certain length of time, the software will log you out automatically. However, while the screen is locked, automatic logout does not apply. The time duration that triggers lock-out is specified when Extended Care is configured.
Lock the Application When You Leave
To lock the application, do the following.
Step 1 Click Lock at the top right of the screen (shown on the left in Figure 4-3).
Step 2 In the Lock confirmation message dialog box (shown in the center of Figure 4-3), click Yes.
The Unlock window will display. It contains your Username and a place for your Password. (A portion of this screen is shown at the right in Figure 4-3.)
Unlock the Application When You Return
To unlock the application, type in your Password (your username will already be entered),
then click Unlock.
Tip Keep in mind that while you are gone another user can type over your name, and log into the application. If that happens, you will be automatically logged out.
