AddonSoftware Administration - Clear File



This task deletes data in a selected file for all firms or just the current firm. It should NOT be used when users are on the system. Users can be temporary locked out of the system by creating a text file name "app_maint_msg.txt" and putting it in the barista directory. The first line of text is displayed in the system lockout message dialog title bar, and all other text is displayed in the message body. For example, the app_maint_msg.txt could consist of the following two lines.

  • System Temporarily Not Available

  • The system is currently undergoing some maintenance and is not available.
