Good to hear. It's almost done (v5 that is)
The booking system has had a bit of a looking at. It's now soo much quicker, thanks to CACHING on the data used to render it. Specifically the AD info for the bookie's userinfo and the static bookings are all cached. The latter expires when the file is chanced (staticbookings.xml), the former is expired after 1 hour. But still it's quite a bit more nippy now.
v5 will be released shortly, keep an eye on Home Access Plus+
I have been looking at implementing Home Access Plus+ and so far...BRILLIANT!.....Sadly we dont use SIMS, so I was wondering if someone could post an example of Report.xml that is used in the student photo bit? Just curious if I can alter it to our setup!
gonna test it out now.. can i ask if for any reason the website is not available at logon does the system carry on, just thinking if my web server died i dont want people unable to logon?
cant seem to get the logon tracker working. i keep getting the below error in the log file.
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: An exception occurred during the operation, making the result invalid. Check InnerException for exception details. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized.

Another problem ive notices is i have set the users to 1 logon only but on second logon this box appears but still lets me press done and it will still logon? if i logon a third time it will stop me pressing done!
That's prob a DOH moment on my half. I'll look into it. If HAP Logon Tracker can't connect to the webserver, it should let the user logon. I'll write the error out to a log file somewhere.
Ok, I've just reuploaded the HAP Logon Tracker.exe to the Home Access Plus+. I had a <= instead of a <.
Can anyone confirm if the remote logoff works? I haven't properly tested it yet. I copied the remote logoff code from the edugeek logon tracker script, since it was the easiest.
It should be fairly quick at registering the logon, it takes a bit more time when their is multiple logons. The only thing that would slow it down would be the webserver's response time. You need to make sure the webserver doesn't auto recycle the extranet app pool in IIS. It can be slow reloading that.
Thanks its working ok now.. could you add a buttom next to done saying cancel so it logs off the current machine they are attempting to logon to as some may not want to log off the other computers if they have work open and i dont want them leaving the machine they are attempting to logon to unattended while they go and save there work.

Did the booking system enhancements not make it into V5?
What enhancements are you referring to? The caching is def in there, but it's only small parts that are cached. I'll expand the caching to include more stuff.
