Group Message

Sends a message to users that is displayed when the workstation is unlocked. This feature is useful for company-wide or group-wide reminders.

The admin can disable the 'Clear' button on the Message display dialog so the user will see the message after each unlock.

The maximum text length is 1024 characters. The '\' + 'n' character sequence indicates a new line.

To fit longer messages into the edit field it is best to compose the message in a text editor such as Notepad and then cut & paste.

Supported on: At least Windows 2000
