Logon

The Logon area allows you to control your staff's access to Khaos Control so that if they have not used the system for a set period they can be logged out automatically. This is useful for security and also if you have a limited number of licenses.

System Values - General - Logon

  • Auto log out idle users checkbox (default=unticked):
    • a tri-state checkbox, set to the "on" setting.: the system will log out and close Khaos Control if the user has been idle, i.e. not opening, editing or saving records, for longer than the time limit specified. It is useful if you have a limited number of Khaos Control licences and you want to ensure that your staff are not using licences that could be used by other members of your staff.
      Note: this does not affect the system if the EPOS screen is open.
    • a tri-state checkbox, set to the "off" setting: users are not logged out of the system, even if they have been inactive.
      • Audible Warning checkbox (default=unticked): if the above option is ticked, the system warns users that they are about to be logged out by emitting a high-pitched beep, see Auto Logout for more information.
      • Time Limit (mins) (default=2): if Auto Logout idle users is ticked, this is the period of time, in minutes, associated with the Auto Logout idle users option.

WARNING icon
WARNING: Do not enable the setting below unless the Windows Username functionality has been configured and verified as working, or you will be unable to access the system!

  • Windows User Login Only checkbox (default=unticked):
    • a tri-state checkbox, set to the "on" setting.: the Khaos Control username and password login system will no longer be used. Instead, the Windows Username login system will be used exclusively.
    • a tri-state checkbox, set to the "off" setting: once users have logged onto their computer, they will need to log into Khaos Control.
