It also has a feature to warn you if you attempt to open a session, from the same data source, as another user. The application uses the logs to detect an open connection. Note that applications closed while being Offline will not register in the logs as closed, and must be manually closed with a right click.

 

There are also options to prompt for a comment, optional or required, when a session is opened or closed. Prompt for comment on open will also prompt for comments when a password is viewed or copied.

 

The Warn if already opened option is supported in Embedded (tabbed) display mode only.

Both prompt for comments are supported in embedded and external display mode.
