4.0 Tips of the Month
We’ve recently had a number of inquiries on setting up your network for related links to work. The relevant Connections Online Forum post is entitled: Sharing files for Related Links with Web Sharing on Windows Server 2003.
We’ve also had questions about the Remember Me feature on the login. Here is the detail on using this feature:
§ The remember me option only works if, when you are done using Connections Online, you close the window without hitting the sign out link at the top of the page. If you sign out, that clears the remember me option and requires you to log in the next time you open Connections Online. To help clarify this, a confirmation message may be added that reminds the user about this when the sign out link is clicked.
§ If you have a bookmark that opens the Connections Online application, it must not link to the Login page directly (my.connectionsonline.net/Login.aspx?…;). You may link to the root of the application (my.connectionsonline.net/) or any other page in Connections Online (my.connectionsonline.net/default.aspx?i=…;), but linking to the Login page will look like it is forcing you to log in again.
