After you have logged on as the
Administrator
, click on File / Network Administration and SportsBM will display the nine User Names as shown above and indicate what User Names are currently logged on and if so, what computer name is associated with that logon. As the Administrator, you can optionally assign a password to one or more of the nine User Names. Please note that the set of User Name passwords are associated with each Database, NOT with the global system. In other words, you can assign passwords for all User Names for Database A but then assign no passwords for access to Database B. Passwords can consists of from 6 to 16 numbers and letters and can be left blank if no password is desired.

When you logon as
Administrator, you have the option to Open the Database in Single User Mode or Multi-User Mode. You also have the option to switch between Single and Multi-User Mode. To switch from one mode to the other, just click on File / Switch to Single/Multi-User Mode. If you try to switch to Single User Mode and there is already a user logged on, SportsBM will not let you switch until all other Users are logged off. Single User Mode prevents any new users from logging on to the system as long as the Administrator is logged on. There are two reasons the Administrator might logon or switch to Single User Mode:

1.To prevent others from logging on while he/she completes changes that are needed without interruption.  
2.To perform any of the Single Mode functions as follows:  
·Restore a Database  
·Repair a Database  
·Import  
·Delete Accounts and Athletes  
·Install Update  
·Use the SportsBM Web Browser
