Password-Protection

NetPoint provides the ability to password protect any schedule. By default, a password is not required to open or to make changes to a NetPoint plan.

Setting a Password

To set a password, click Schedule > Set Password… from the menu bar. The Schedule Password window will open. By default, No password required is selected.

To activate this feature, first choose one of the two types of password protection available.

Password required for READ requires that the correct password be entered to view or modify the schedule.

Password required for MODIFY requires that the correct password be entered to modify the schedule, but this option also allows the schedule to be viewed even if the user does not know the password.

After the type of password is selected, enter the desired password into the two text fields. Click OK to exit. If the passwords entered are too short or do not match, corresponding error messages will display.

To remove a password, choose Schedule > Set Password… from the menu bar. The Schedule Password window opens.

Make sure that the password text fields are empty, and then select No password required. Click OK to exit.
