Untis MultiUser in info mode

previous  Top  next

Info mode also works when you use the MultiUser version of Untis. Whereas the single-user version requires the path to the file in the command line, the multi-user version requires the school, school year and version, separated by ~ and preceded by "DB".


Instead of




you would enter




This is the same name that can be found in the list of most recently opened files (see figure).








Certain special characters, e.g. the slash in school year must be replaced by a hyphen for technical reasons. We recommend that you always refer to the list of recently opened files.


When Untis MultiUser first starts in info mode, the system checks whether there is a user or user group with the name “Info”. If not, the user and group are automatically created (without password). This user is then used to log in from all info terminals.


Both the user and user group can be edited just like any other user (group).


More than one info user

If info mode is run on several computers with the same user, logging the user off from one terminal will of course log the user off from all terminals. Untis therefore allows you to launch info mode on different computers using any user name you like. To do this simply specify the user and password in the command line as well:


DB~myschool1~2017-2018~1,Info1 /user=sampleuser /pw=samplepassword




Tip: Automatic login in standard mode

If the window group is not specified in the command line, Untis MultiUser will start in standard mode, the login dialogue will be skipped and the defined user will be automatically logged on to the database.
