Tracking User Logon & Logoff from a Database
In this video, I'll show you how to track each user's log on and log off times in your Microsoft Access database. We'll determine the username and computer name from the Windows system environment variables, log the user in when they start the database, and log them out when the close it.
Jason from Fort Payne, Alabama (a Platinum Member) asks: I need an easy way to track what time each user starts their database every morning, and what time they leave to go home at night. We've got a timeclock, but nobody uses it. I figure at least this way I can tell when they start working on their computers. Everyone needs the customer database. LOL
Members will learn how to add up all of the time that each user spends in the database. We'll generate a query showing the total number of minutes spent logged in each day. We'll also get rid of the queries from the last lesson and replace them with SQL statements.
Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.
