We have about 20 drafters in our office. Sometimes a particular drafter makes a request for a function. Currently to make them aware of this I send an alert however, it means the entire office will get the alert (the acaddoc.lsp is coppied from the sever to local wokstations every morning) rather then
We have about 20 drafters in our office. Sometimes as CAD manager I need to fix/ modify/ add a particular autocad function relative to a single user or selected group of drafters pending the situation.
Rather then kick the drafter off their seat and disturb his/ her working time I would like to know if anybody knows of a lisp that uses the user logon name as a trigger to callup/ load a particular function.
As example we have project leaders who require functions better left off limits to standard drafters.
As an alternative to the others, you could do it by adding a registry key to each the computers and checking for that key during the load process. Set the key to one of a preset range of values (long random keys if more security is required), with each key giving access to a certain level of loading e.g. "LOAD LEVEL A" for the main group, "LOAD LEVEL B" gives access to the base plus loads extended capabilities, "LOAD LEVEL C" gives access to everything including diagnostic tools.
Could be a little more useful if you have high turnover - keeping up to date on all the valid login IDs can be tasking.
