The Administration entry in the control panel displays information about MainBoss. This window contains:

Client list: The top part of the window lists people who are currently connected to this MainBoss database.

Client Name: Lists people currently connected with the database. Names are given in the form DOMAIN/COMPUTER/USERNAME.

Application: Lists the application that each person is running. Usually, this will be MainBoss, indicating the main program.

Creation: The date/time when you began this MainBoss session.

If you accidentally turn off your computer while using MainBoss, MainBoss doesn't detect the problem immediately—MainBoss simply thinks you aren't currently typing anything. After 30 minutes (approximately) of receiving no input, MainBoss checks to see if the computer is still connected; if the computer is not connected, MainBoss then removes your name from the list of active connections. In other words, users stay "active" for about half an hour after an unplanned disconnection.

Apply Filter: Lets you set up a filter to select which records should be shown in the table. For more information, see Table Filters.

Modules area: Lists what module licenses you do and don't have.

Search: Searches the client list for a particular entry.

Refresh: Updates the client list. Note that Refresh does not update the Licensing area. The licensing information only gets updated if you quit MainBoss, then start the program again.

For more on administration, see MainBoss Administration.
