Welcome to our “How to SAP Business One” Series: See active users & disconnect, if necessary

SAP Business One is a powerful ERP solution that helps streamline business operations by providing real-time insights and analytics. However, sometimes it may be necessary to disconnect users from the system, either for maintenance or security reasons. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to see active users in SAP Business One and disconnect them if necessary.

Step 1: Access the Connected Clients Screen

To see active users in SAP Business One, first, you need to access the “Connected Clients” screen. To do this, select “Administration” from the main menu, then click “Utilities” and finally click “Connected Clients.”

Step 2: View Active Users

Once you have accessed the “Connected Clients” screen, a pop-up window will appear showing all active users currently logged into SAP Business One. This screen displays each user’s name, IP address, and login time.

Step 3: Send a Message to Active Users

Before disconnecting any users, you can use the “Send Message” button on the bottom right of the pop-up screen to send a message to the user. This message will appear as a pop-up on the user’s screen, notifying them that they will be disconnected soon. This is a helpful feature to let users know that they need to save their work before being logged out.

Step 4: Disconnect Active Users

To disconnect a user, simply click on the user’s name in the “Connected Clients” screen, and then click the “Disconnect” button on the bottom left. You will be prompted to confirm the disconnection. Once confirmed, the user will be immediately disconnected from the system.

Step 5: Close and Check for Disconnected Users

After you have disconnected all necessary users, click “close” to exit the “Connected Clients” screen. To ensure that all users have been disconnected, re-enter the “Connected Clients” screen. The user list should be empty if all users have been disconnected successfully.

To conclude this how to SAP Business One episode: knowing how to see active users in SAP Business One and disconnect them if necessary is essential for maintaining system security and ensuring that maintenance tasks can be performed effectively.

By following these simple steps, you can easily manage active users and maintain the integrity of your SAP Business One system.
