Multi-User Desktop Tab

Subject

This tab allows you to configure the Multi-User Desktop feature for workstations associated with the security profile.

NOTE:

  • Multi-User Desktop provides advanced Fast User Switching features for workstations used simultaneously by a large number of users, such as "kiosk workstations" or computers used by medical staff in hospitals. For more information on the Multi-User Desktop feature, see Authentication Manager Session Management Administrator’s Guide.

  • When a user authenticates in Multi-User Desktop mode with an unassigned RFID badge, he will be able to assign it with his credentials. He will have to choose a PIN if the RFID+PIN authentication method is active.

Before starting

The workstations running Multi-User Desktop must meet the following requirements:

  • The Windows session is always (and automatically) opened and cannot be locked.
  • The screen saver is disabled.
  • Neither Authentication Manager nor the Integration with Windows Authentication module is installed.
