Sign-In Mode (Enabling User Authentication)

Set up and Turn on User Authentication

Utilize User Authentication to keep track of changes made by users in Calibration Control (our Calibration Management Software).  Activating User Sign-In mode is simple. The only prerequisite for Sign-In Mode is having at least one User record created with the Administrator role.

Requires an Admin User

Create a User and select Administrator as the role for at least one user record.

Turning On User Authentication

Once an Admin User record exists, go to File (or from the Utilities tab on ribbon menu) and select Options > Advanced tab > Security and select Activate Sign-In Mode. Click Yes and Calibration Control will restart.

Activate Sign-In Mode

Sign In

The User Sign-In dialog will appear when you start Calibration Control. Enter user credentials. Note: If you select the Remember Sign-In checkbox in the User Sign-In dialog, this will bypass having to sign in again the next time Calibration Control is opened on that machine.

User Sign-In Dialog

Sign Out

When the User Sign-in dialog checkbox Remember Sign-In is selected, the user will be already signed in the program each time.  This can always be undone in Calibration Control by going to File > Sign Out before restarting the program.

Disable Sign-In Mode

To deactivate User Authentication, go to File (or from the Utilities tab on ribbon menu) and select Options > Advanced tab > Security and select Deactivate Sign-In Mode. Click Yes to Disable Sign-In Mode and Calibration Control will restart under Machine Authentication.
