Password Permissions

NetPoint provides two options for securing a schedule with a password. The first option (Password required for READ) will prevent the schedule from even being opened unless the password is entered. The second option (Password required for Modify) will allow the schedule to be opened without a password, but it will be in read-only mode. To gain full access, the password must be entered. If you have received a schedule but do not know the password, contact the creator of the schedule. If the password is lost or forgotten, please contact
