    open webpage once

    Hi I want to be able to open a webpage only once, when a user log in for the first time. Is this possible? I want to be able to display an ICT Support Help and support page for new members of staff?


    Thanks

    I don't think this would be easily achievable. How would you keep track of the logins to determine what is the 1st logon?

    Put together a welcome email that is sent to them instead with a link?

    Logon script which writes a small hidden temp file to the users home drive when it has completed?

    If this file is then found again the script exits.

    Code:
    @echo off
    
    if exist "N:\firstlogon.tmp" (
    exit
    ) else (
    start iexplore www.website.com
    echo %username% >> "N:\FirstLogon.tmp"
    exit
    )
    I haven't tested the above but if you save it to a .bat file and run it twice (assuming you have N drive mapped!!) it should first open IE and then do nothing the next time it is run.


    Hope that helps

    Could you put a short cut in the startup folder?
