To manage client settings from ManicTime Server, ManicTime client first needs to be connected to ManicTime Server. To connect ManicTime Client, users can:
- install ManicTime themselves, then connect it to the server
- ManicTime can be deployed via Active Directory or similar. To deploy it via Active Directory, you need to use Windows users and use Deployment file as described here.
After ManicTime client is connected to ManicTime Server, administrators can control clients from ManicTime Server. They can:
- change the license on all connected clients
- change settings on all connected clients
When ManicTime Server is installed, Administrator is asked to choose either a Trial or enter ManicTime Pro license. This license is then used by all connected clients.
License can later be updated at Administration -> License. When license is updated, it is sent to the clients when next synchronisation occurs.
Managing client settings
To change client settings, go to Administration, Client settings and enable them.
You can enable or disable client settings, which are applied to all users. If you do not enable client settings for all users, then whatever is set on the client by the user will be applied.
Then you can also create new client settings and apply them to specific users. First create new client settings, then assign them to specific users.
All settings have checkboxes before the name, you have to check the checkbox, then set the settings. Only settings with checked checkboxes will be sent to the client.
All other settings, which do not have checkboxes checked, can be changed by the user on the client.
