Studio and Connect

When you start Studio and log on to Connect, you can select the Remember my login box so that Connect remembers your credentials for all programs.

For information about the legal use of Connect licenses, see the End User License Agreement ("EULA") link at the lower left of your Connect product home page, or refer to the License Definitions and License Restrictions pages.

Note: You can navigate from within the Studio application to launch the Connect Site.You have the option of enforcing manual user authorization for every access (see screenshot below).

Concurrent logons

You can be logged on to Connect on two computers at the same time. When you log in at the second computer, you will see a message alerting you that you are logged on twice. Then the message disappears, and you can continue to work. You cannot log on at a third machine. For more information, contact your Automate Connect administrator.

Disconnected Internet connection

If your internet connection is disconnected and you have already logged on to Connect, you can keep working for up to six hours. When the internet is disconnected, you will see a notification in the status bar. The notification will also tell you whether your license is still online. You can keep working, or save your work and log off.

The authentication requirement prevents unlicensed users from working offline.
