multi user logging on and off

Recommended Posts

is there a way in a multi user solution to have a list of logged on and logged off users for everyone to see...

I'm using filemaker 5.5 multi platform...not server

each user has their own password and is assigned their own groupname...there are about 15 files with a main menu..

thanks

Status(CurrentGroup) will tell you who the current use is. You can create a log file to create a record each time a user logs on a use a shutdown script to delete the record each time they log off.

what i've managed to do so far...

I created a field for each employee in a log file...each field is a calc field that states

Then I related this to the main menu with a global. Then, in theory, I guess I could perform a script that when each person logs into, it would create a new record with the highest record number at the top so the only record to be shown would be the latest one showing who is on?

But then, when someone logs off, would I create another record as that person logs off? I don't think that would work cause as they are closing file, arent't still on?

Sorry.if I seem I am rambling..I'm just thinking out loud...

thanks...
